Sarmistha - A resounding voice

Sarmistha's name is not new to many Hindi music bloggers! She is a very well known name amongst bloggers at LaFango and recently at Muziboo! Sarmistha has an impeccable voice with bright and charming expressions and a unique style that is very mesmerizing! I have been quite impressed with her singing since I heard her the very first time. Hence, I am pleased to share her lovely voice with those who have not heard it yet.

Here, we are presenting a Hindi song with a touch of Western Country music! "Agar Main Kahun" is from the movie Lakshya! This is originally sung in the beautiful voices of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. Music is composed by the 3-and-only Shankar-Ehsan-Loy team, and lyrics by none other than Javed Akhtar. In terms of style and listening experience, this song belongs to the same group as "Jaane Kyun Log Pyar" and "Wo Ladki Hai Kahan" both from Dil Chahta Hai. A beautiful exchange of dialogs between the boy and the girl which start with an argument and ends in a make up. Besides the amalgamation of music genres, this song is also challenging since it contains many emotions and expressions that cover romance, naughtiness, complaint, acknowledgement, and everything in between! Sarmistha and I both realize these challenges during recording and had an increased appreciation for the original song and the team.

I thank Sarmistha for singing this with me and also thank you all in advance for your time.

PS: A video has been posted on my Facebook page!

I heard "Agar Main Kahun" on Facebook, and "Aap Ki Ankhon Mein" on Google. Couldn't post comments directly on those pages as I don't have an account. But it was very, very refreshing (especially in the morning, with a hot cup of Starbucks) to hear your voice after a long time brother. Aap Ki Ankhon Mein was splendid, and both of you sounded very relaxed, and at ease. I love when you sing a KishoreDa song, it always brings that special Rafi-Sahab touch. I never heard Sarmistha before, but she sings well, especially those fast murkhiyan. Again, very nice work by both of you, and thanks for the share
