Indo-American singer Anuradha's 'Jaan Meri' has mega-magic

Charming classical singer Anuradha Palakurthi who is known as the ‘Nightingale of New England’ by her ardent fans in her home city of Boston, USA recorded with ‘Melody Monarch’ Bappi Lahiri for the inaugural series of the ‘Music Room’ series of six songs.

The songs that were recorded and videos were shot in LA and featured on Zee TV, USA. She also recorded a duet with Hariharan along with a group of 14 multiple-Grammy winners from across the globe.

Anuradha’s ‘Guru’ is classical virtuoso Arati Ankalikar-Tikekar. An ardent fan of legendary Bollywood composers Madan Mohan and R D Burman, currently Anuradha is working often with ‘mentor’ Bappi-Da and his talented composer-son Bappa Lahiri.

Speaking about her latest sentimental album ‘Jaan Meri’, being the title song, Anuradha who is a staunch follower of Hindustani culture, blushes, as she reveals that this is what her husband Prashanth fondly calls her.

Reveals madame Palakurthi, “Ustaad Nishat Khan, the composer, felt that ‘Jaan Meri’ should reflect the creative force of the melody which he identified as the husband-wife sacred relationship. We wanted this to be a 'mega' song and so 72 musicians participated in the recording. Khan Saheb's composition is so divine and we recorded at YRF Studios. The vibrant video of 'Jaan Meri' picturised on the stunning model-actress-trained dancer Ankita Maity, was shot by Sanjay and Ashwini in Baku, Azerbaijan. Because we wanted awesome visuals, that showed how an artist goes back to art, which in turn has ‘healing power’, to recover from personal disappointment of unrequited love,” explains Anuradha.
