Devika Chawla is Back with “Saari Raat” (Album Review)

November 19, 2009

Devika Chawla

After the hit “Kehnde de Naina” in 2007, Devika Chawla is back with her second album, “Saari Raat” by Saregama India Ltd. The album is officially released on 17th November, and brings together renowned artists and musicians from India and Pakistan. The contemporary Sufi album comprises eight tracks reflecting truly delightful and soulful music.  Shahi Hasan, (Ex member of Vital signs), has again come up with his flamboyant production skills and ostentatious work. Devika has been working with Bohemia, a Pakistani born Punjabi rapper and producer from California, and a pioneer of Punjabi rap. The album title song “Barkha Bahar” is the most soothing and fanatical track, with a romantic and melancholic music in the background. It is the most beautiful track with a nice mellow start, making it sublime. Devika is a very talented singer with superior classical training, and has delivered awe-inspiring vocals in this song.  Shahi Hasan, apart from composing and producing the album, has written lyrics for the album too. No doubt, “Barkha Bahar” is a tremendously captivating track with super vocals and a beguiling bass. “Saari Raat” is another soft and romantic song from the album, which captures core typical disposition. “Unka Khayal” is again a very light, pliable and dreamy song from the album. “Andheri Lagan” depicts a complaining tone, and encompasses a different music tinge.
