‘Char Pal Ki Zindagi’ is the first track from Raj’s album ‘Pal – A Moment’ and although recorded in London, was created in true Bollywood filmi fashion with a live orchestra. Whilst the title track plays homage to the melodies and harmonies that have made Yagnik one of the leading lights in the music industry, there is also a contemporary re-mix produced by the extraordinary ‘Jackal’.
P M Raj, a former presenter for BBC Bristol has spent his life with music, and for him singing with one of India’s all time greats was not only an honour, but also a dream come true. He comments: “This has been a long journey with hard work and patience. Throughout my life I have been lucky enough to have not only learned from the masters of music, but also to have performed with them. Working with Alka Yagnik has to be one of the highlights of my career. She is a true professional and we had a great time recording the track.”
Award-winning singing sensation Yagnik, has recorded more than 20,000 songs during her career and has collaborated with some of the most respected names in the industry, from veterans Laxmikant Pyarelal and Javed Akhtar to AR Rahman and Himesh Reshammiya amongst a host of others.
