ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the songwriter's in Heart to Heart:
BABUL BOSE
In 1995 Babul Bose composed for my album Dil Mein Tum which was released on audio cassette. I chose to present one of the songs Meri Zindagi Mein Tum Chale Aawo once again. The composition and lyrics are as the original, the music has been re-arranged by Ravi Lakhani and Abhishek Bose. Babul Bose is well-known for his work as a composer in Bengali movies. I am blessed to have worked with him.

NEERAJ SRIDHAR (Bombay Viking)
In 2003, while I was on tour in Europe, Neeraj invited me to his home in Sweden. He surprised me by composing Tamanna for me as a gift. Unreleased over the years, in 2015 I reconnected with my friend Tutun Roy who rearranged the music. I am grateful to have this song from Neeraj Sridhar a great performer, composer, arranger and friend. Tutun Roy no doubt has proved his excellence in the arrangement and programming.

RAJEEV MAHAVIR
We met in 2014, a soulmate connection, his music and my voice became bound in one - one breath that churned out Manzil Tu Hi, a Sufi pop song that charted at no. 29 on the iTunes Top 100 World Music chart; Krishna,The Flute Player, a World Music album that charted at no. 14 on the US Billboard Chart and now six romantic songs that Rajeev said came to us from Almighty Himself based on my aura.

About Shashika Mooruth the solo singer in Heart to Heart:
'a voice steeped in emotion that comes only from the spiritual world, not every one receives this gift ….a timbre that will touch your soul’ Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Saheb (Mumbai,1997)

Widely traveled to more than twenty-five countries, her voice with its unique timbre is her passport to much acclaim. She has had the honor of performing for a select audience at the United Nations in May 2006 receiving overwhelming applause. The late world-renowned Pakistani singer and Grammy winner Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Saheb heard her sing in Mumbai and was all praise for her talent and voice which he described as ‘steeped in soul and emotion’.

Shashika is born a natural singer. She embarked on Hindustani classical training only after completing her university education but she loves to experiment with different styles. As a conscious artiste she does not restrict herself to any genre. Rather she aims to not just entertain but to create a positive shift in the consciousness of her listeners, hence her performances range from classical to pop, kirtan to folk to Bollywood, in fact she allows her voice to roam as a free spirit singing from her soul.

She had an interest from childhood to spread a message of peace through her music. By the age of fourteen, she had sung to some of the largest audiences in South Africa raising funds for old age homes, orphanages, charitable trusts, missionaries, spiritual organisations and various fundraising initiatives.

Honoured at the World Hindu Conference in S.Africa 1995 for her contribution to Indian Music in S.Africa alongside Indian artistes Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Pdt Hrdaynath Mangeshkar, she also received the South African Hindu Dharma Sabha’s Honour award from the Indian Consulate General Mr Anil Sharma in 2011 for her sterling contribution to the advancement of Indian culture in S.Africa through her music and performed at the welcome reception of Indian PM Shri Narendra Modi in S.Africa in 2016.

Blessed with the natural ability that involves communicating, teaching, healing and entertaining that suits her personality and interests, Shashika also conducts workshops, music therapy sessions, voice classes and delivers motivational talks all through her unique, holistic approach.

In 2003, she launched her independent music label URJA MUSIC and has produced more than 15 successful albums and singles that enjoy popularity worldwide.

She is also a Billboard artiste and a Grammy voting member.

1. DIL KI GIRAH
open the knots of your heart so our breath can become one …. the night will tell the true story of our love.

2. TAMANNA
this is my wish, to live and die with you, my love is calling you….

3. MERE JAHAAN MEIN
my breath stands still…..without you every thing is incomplete.

4. HAZARON HICHKI
how can I understand this sudden separation, how can I overcome this pain?

5. WOH MEETHI BAATEIN
those sweet chitchats….it is the season of desire, …..I am breathless.

6. DIL AISA MERA PAAGAL
this crazy heart of mine ….I want to fly as a butterfly with you.

come back into my life, together we will sing the song of love.

the cymbals of my heart are resounding, bound by the strings of my heart.
