Tu Muskura ( cover version ) with Pradip Somasundaran

Absolutely fell in love with this song when I heard it in 2008, the year it released. Always have wondered why this album of ARR wasn’t as popular as his other Hindi ones. Then… I made the mistake of seeing the movie :-( Very sad state of affairs to say the least, and definitely the lesser the said, the better!

Music by ARR, just beautiful!!! And this is the 2nd song I am covering after Tu hi mera dosth with George Kuruvilla.

This song is a beautiful romantic number with great singing by Alka Yagnik & Javed Ali. Not a big fan of hers, but I have found her giving her best for ARR consistently, and this song is no exception.

I had a pre-requisite to do this number, and that was Pradip being available. Given the complexity of the ending swarams/jathis, and the voice match— somehow couldn’t imagine anyone else giving this song the required dedication, that it so richly deserves. So, thank you Pradip, for doing Javed’s parts, and for all your help especially in my nemesis lang., Hindi LOL

Thanks in advance for your time, and happy listening!

Movie: Yuvvraaj
Original Music by: A R Rahman
Originally sung by: Javed Ali & Alka Yagnik

Hi Meera,

Had a query. How you record your voice? What is the setup? Its been very clear.

I use normal PC Microphone and FruityLoops for recording voice.

I will be very glad if you give info or give some pointers.

This is what I use:

Macbook pro with a logic express 8 SW, apogee duet interface and a Shure SM86 condensor. Hope this helps.
