National Award-winning singer Rekha Bhardwaj, who already released her Sufi album Kabir Chaura Sufi Chaura, is going to release two more albums this year.

“I am working with Vishal on an album, which is a tribute to the poems of Padma Vibushan winner Dr. Bashir Badrsaab,” said Rekha. “While Vishal is composing songs, both he and I plan to sing together for this album.”

She also is working on another album titled Ishka Ishka 2, which will have lyrics by the award-winning Gulzar and music composed by her husband, Vishal Bhardwaj.

“When I got married and moved to Mumbai, he [Vishal Bhardwaj] was still struggling,” said Rekha. “I supported and assisted him when he was working full time as a music composer. That’s when I learnt the process of creating and arranging music, and the seeds of playback singing were sown. I observed how passionately singers worked and learnt to stay patient and confident, despite rejections.”

Gramophone Record Makes a Comeback withTimeless Melodies Yesudas

Looks like the gramophone record is making a comeback in Malayalam under the Satyam Audios label with Timeless Melodies Yesudas. The Long Play (LP) consists of eight recent film songs by the melodious and critically acclaimed singer Yesudas.
The first native recording done in India professionally was in 1902, and the first Malayali voice to be recorded on a gramophone record was in 1912. The first LP record released in India was a recording of Pandit Ravi Shankar in 1958, while the first LP of Malayalam film songs was The Best Songs of K J Yesudas in 1968.

“Piracy has reduced the audio industry to shambles,” said Premachandran of Satyam Audios. “The release of gramophone records may help stall this to some extent. Music released exclusively on records will prevent piracy. Perhaps this going back will help the industry move ahead.”
