Music Recall

Froth in a pot of fresh milk. Pop of a bubble. Spritz from a water spray. Tickle of a feather. A baby’s nose nuzzling at the neck. A puppy squirming on the lap to find its spot. Snuggle under a fat, cushiony blanket through a bluish, winter night. Patter of babies’ feet. The first whiff of a gentle monsoon through a huge balcony. Jingle of new coins in a well-worn pocket. Jangle of trinklets and madly wound lockets. Whistle of the pressure cooker triggering an evening appetite. Gurgle of a mountain stream. Trickle of a traveler’s dream. Crunching of a hundred stars. Blooming of a thousand flowers. Dancing shadows in a secret cellar. Carefree swirls of the Blue Umbrella.

Vishal Bharadwaj is terrific.

Vishal-gulzar is a very fav combo and you've just added to the temptation of Buying 'Blue Umbrella; music with that post!

On Vishal, I am sure you know about his film music. He has also given music to 'Sunset Point'-essentially a Gulzar album! Recommended!

On his recent music, have you heard 'Naina' from Omkara?
