New Music: ‘Chalo’ by artist Nouman Javaid

Ever since he scored the tracks ‘Dard E Tanhai Main’ and ‘Main Chala’ for the Bollywood film ‘Jashnn’ in 2009, I became his fan. Artist Nouman Javaid, has a very different approach to his sound and to his Music.

What I liked the most about his initial two tracks, are his crystal clear and emotion filled vocals which seem to be effortlessly combined with a blend of piano and guitar melodies. Having followed his work since 2009, I have also enjoyed his popular song ‘Gham E Ashiqui’ and the OSTs where he has also lent his vocals.

He has recently released a stunning new track called ‘Chalo’ which he has written, composed and sung. ‘Chalo’ is a beautiful melody which is sure to stay with you after you listen to it. Do check out the video of the song and share your feedback in the comments!

Yes, everyone’s favourite golden oldie from the 90’s film ‘Aashiqui’, was given the YoYo Honey Singh treatment. The single of course, was produced by TSeries as they are the ‘brain’ behind this unique idea.

It is the fourth song that I have learnt to play this year, without any written music as a guide. It is also the fourth song that I have learnt (after the Sanam Teri Kasam title track, Bewajah & Main Woh Chaand) by my favourite Bollywood musician Himesh Reshammiya.
