    It is a motley mixture of various genres, lyrics and styles. Sony BMG's latest album launches Sona Mohapatra as a versatile singer who defies classification. The first track Bolo Na is a mellow contemporary number with good guitar accompaniment but what is interesting is Sona's uninhibited and hearty voice - a welcome change from the screeching vocals that dominate the current Hindi music scene.

    The catchy background score in Abhi Nahin Aana and the Punjabi pop influence in Aaja Ve add to the appeal of the album. The fourth song, Ishq Nachaya with impressive percussion and Bulle Shah lyrics follows the Sufi trend in popular music that was kick started by Rabbi Shergill not so long ago. Aisi Jaagi Re has a distinct rustic flavour, while Awaz is much softer and modern.

    Immediately after the urban melody is a heady traditional song Jai Phulo Re, which in turn is followed by a foot-tapping number, Sapne. Interspersing semi-classical music with western zing works wonders for this album, which offers something for everyone.

    And, yes, there are two remixes too that are sure to take you on to the dance floor. Overall a nice album to hear.

    WITH LUV... TUMHAARA

    At times there comes an album, which is low on hype but high on content. With Luv... Tumhaara falls in this category. Composed by Sudeep Banerjee, the music appeals in the first go itself.

    Though, at times, the compositions sound `inspired', still Banerjee has put in some hard work. The album opens with Dheere Dheere in the mellifluous voice of Shreya Ghoshal.

    A lilting number with some meaningful verse, the tune, however, seems to be inspired by Piyu Bole of Parineeta. Shaan has done full justice to Zindagi, composed in the singsong format. The song of the album is Rutho Na sung by Sudeep himself.

    A sad number, it grows on you and lasts. Kyun Ho Khafa is a slow-paced lounge number. Shreya has given it the required seductive effect.

    Kailash Sufi is at his Sufi-best in Moula. Then there are versions of these numbers. Not a bad buy if you don't go by big names.

    ODYSSEY OF LOVE

    This album of instrumental music composed by Kaanchman Babbar makes for interesting listening.

    Inspired by the teachings of Anandmurti Gurumaa and also the various albums produced by this spiritual teacher, in which she sings or recites verses with instrumental backing, this collection comprises five varied tracks. The overall theme is the love of the sufi `banda' for the Almighty. Most of the pieces are soothing and evoke an atmosphere of calm.
