Joel Veena & Amit Singhal
On a sweltering hot April afternoon in Delhi, I met my musical brothers Suraj Nirwan and Amit Singhal at NRAI Studios in Delhi. We had prepared one original piece (Jai Love) and one classical raga (Raga Jog) for recording. Magic happened inside the studio: Amit and my riyaz sessions earlier were given fresh rhythmic direction by Suraj as we arranged the pieces to carry our personalities and show our musicianship. During the session, I asked my friends, "Imagine if we could do this everyday, meet here and record music, what a life that would be..." It was a sentiment that resonated with all three of us and we used it as inspiration and focus to make the best performance possible...because it's not everyday that three good friends can record music together, making a musical message of harmony for the world. We are thankful to be able to share this music with you all.
