7 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

In 1997, A. R. Rahman undertook this project as a celebration of India's 50th anniversary of independence. Singing most of the songs himself, he enlisted an international cast of collaborators—including Sting's guitarist Dominic Miller and Qawwali legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan—to craft an Indian pop phenomenon. The shimmering "Maa Tujhe Salaam" practically became the country’s new national anthem, and Khan's fluid, passionate performance on the pop-oriented "Gurus of Peace" made the recording—one of his last—especially memorable.

One of the best compositions of A R Rahman

A R Rahman is gifted and is one of the best composers in the world today. This is definitely one of his best work as it has stood the test of time for over 14 years now and is still played on every Indian Republic day & Independence day. Kudos!

Take a bow, A R Rahman!
