The album presents an amazing cross-section of eminent talents from two generations who present the quintessential flavor of Kaifi Azmi’s poetry through Khayyam’s music.
It is a spectrum of the legendary Kaifi saheb’s poetry in all its phases, moods and rhythms, featuring an assortment of ghazals and nazms. The romantic poetry goes hand-in-hand with the revolutionary and the mystical with the lyrical.
Sung by artistes such as Kavita Krishnamurthy, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan and Roop Kumar Rathod, the album brings forth the essence of the reflective poetry of Kaifi Azmi and the soul stirring of Khayyam.
It is for the first time that Kaifi Azmi’s non-film poetry has been set to musical compositions. Beside sthe album is also the first of its kind with playback singers Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan making a debut of sorts into the world of ghazals.
The melodies composed by Khayyam are unique with a beautiful blend of the contemporary with the traditional.
