Vishal Bhardwaj and Suresh Wadkar Team Up
Composer-singer-director-screenwriter Vishal Bhardwaj and singer Suresh Wadkar have teamed up for the album Barse Barse, which has finally released under the Times Music label. The album consists of five tracks produced over a four-year period, making it all the more exciting that the album has finally seen the light of day!
“Barse Barse brought the memories of our old times back,” Wadkar said. “The songs in our albums are those which were shelved from movies but I wanted those songs to come out and reach to people.”
Music director Bhardwaj said, “The driving force of the album is the mood of the composition which is inspirational. The album is the best as it’s the outcome of long friendship.”
