Usha Uthup Audio Music Album Launched
Memories, the music album of eminent singer Usha Uthup was released in the presence of Bollywood actress Zeenat Aman and ace director Ramesh Sippy. Also present were Mahua Lahiri of Asha Audio, Kiran Juneja and Munna-Raj at the ceremony.
R.D. Burman, the music composer who had given numerous hits is a legend in his own right. To pay tribute to him, eminent singer Usha Uthup dedicated a music album titled Memories.
“I had the position to select a music director of my choice and in came Rahul Dev Burman. He makes his entry and the choice was proved right. I selected him because of his youth and energy. Many people said that he used too much percussion and rhythm and is not like his father Sachin Dev Burman. But I liked his energy and the enthusiasm. I made up my mind that it has to be him and hence my association with the great musician”, said Ramesh Sippy.
Zeenat Aman revealed that the late music composer had composed music for twenty seven of her films, which was a record for the music composer. “This is a great feeling that the man composed music for so many of my films. Thank you Munna for the research!! Even I was not aware of this before. He has been part of my biggest hits like Dum Maro Dum, Samundar Mein Nahake and many others. He was legendary and is legendary. It is wonderful that the film is released in his genre and my dear friend Usha had spearheaded this initiative. I am glad I am here for the release of the album”.
Usha Uthup said on the occasion “I am thankful to Asha Audio and Munna Raj for actually helping me in bringing out this music album. I am also immensely glad that Zeenat is sitting beside me. Not an event has passed where I have not hummed Hare Rama Hare Krishna. And I am equally grateful that Ramesh Sippy is sitting beside me who unknowingly has always acted as my guide. I thank the Lord for actually making this happen”.
With eight songs composed by the late music director, the album Memories will be a good album for one to buy. The album is available at all the leading outlets and is presented by Asha Audio.
