Bhubaneswar: ‘Ninad’ the Hindi bhajan album of renowned Odia singer Namrata Mohanty is being released on the global digital platform yesterday.
Ninad is a bouquet of traditional Hindi bhajans originally sung by bhakti saints like Meera, Kabir, Tulsidas, Surdas among others. Namrata with her inclination towards traditional and contemporary music has rendered the timeless creations.
Consisting of eight tracks of devotional spirit, the album is composed by Maheshwar Rao, renowned music director from Odisha. The music is arranged by Nitya Sriranjan and mixing has been done by Upendra Panda.
The album was released a couple years ago in the music industry. However looking at the demand of good quality content in the web media, OdishaLIVE has taken up the global digital distribution of the production.
Speaking on the occasion singer Namrata Mohanty says “Maheshwar Rao is my guru and he has composed very soulful music for the album. But it was not easy to work on the album as the bhajans are classical Raga based compositions. The bhajans are one of my favourite”.
“Namrata has a unique voice and she has sung the bhajans devotedly. When most singers run after popular trends in the music industry, she is one who intends to do good work that stands the test of time. I hope Ninad will be well received by the global audience” said Maheshwar Rao, music director of Ninad.
