Bhavana Balwalli, July 2006

Image:Bhavana_SOM.jpg

I am quite a newbie when it comes to singing.But I always loved to listen to Hindi music..right from my childhood.My mother used to remark that as an infant I never gave her any trouble because I would stop crying or throwing tantrums the moment the radio was switched on! I am very fond of old songs especially by Lataji,Rafi Sahab and Kishore da.Marathi Bhavgeet is another huge favorite.I love to listen to music all the time...even during studying!


However,I never had much oppurtunity to formally learn vocal music .I am basically from Mumbai but have been shuttling between Delhi,Mumbai,Pune,Nasik,Rajkot etc.as my Dad has a transferable job so it was not easy to find music classes everytime we moved . But I have a flair for playing the keyboard so he got me a Casio Keyboard and I would love to play all hindi movie songs on it.I didnt know the musical notation as such but would enjoy playing it by trial and error.Meanwhile I continued to occasionally sing or play kepybaord in functions at my school in Delhi and my college in Mumbai and Pune.


After completing my Masters in Computer Applications from Mumbai I got married and moved to the US in 2003.Soon,my husband presented me with a CASIO keyboard and I forgot all about singing..until Taranaa happened!And now I have got to enjoy singing so much that my poor keyboard is now relegated to a corner and its place taken up by mic,pre amp and computer.Singing has now become a passion for me from a mere hobby. But just when I had started enjoying myself I had to move because of a new job and was unable to sing or record for few months.I couldn't believe how much I missed all the action at Taranaa during those days.Now that I am finally settled in this beautiful city of Seattle,I hope to make up for the lost time.

I feel honoured to be on this page and have a lot to learn from the immense talent out here. I am thankful to Harshal, Taranaa Team and Taranaa members for considering me worthy of this oppurtunity.I cant thank Taranaa enough for creating this wonderful platform that has made me realise the joys of singing and Karaoke.


Also, I cannot forget to thank the Taranaa musicians for creating these awesome Karaoke tracks. I got a lot of help from the Taranaa members in creating this page and would like to personally thank each one of them.And finally, I would like to thank my husband for his continued support,encouragement and patience.

Songs performed and recorded by Bhavana

This is my all time favorite Marathi 'bhavgeet'.

For those who are not familiar with the Marathi language,the song starts by describing the beauty of the night...the shukratara(north star)is shining brightly, a gentle breeze is blowing and the reflection of the moon and stars stares back from the water.Rest of the song is about two people declaring their love.The poetry and the music is just awesome!

Sachin has kindly lent his wonderfully soothing voice to this beautiful song originally sung by Arun Date and Anuradha Paudwal.Hope you all enjoy listening to it .

This is a lovely song from the movie 'An Evening in Paris'.Khan Sahab has done a fabulous job as usual! Please hit the play button and hear him recreate the magic of Rafi-sahab's voice!

Soumitra gives another prime example of his versatility in this lilting number from the movie 'Kyun ho gaya na' originally sung by Udit Narayan and Sadhana Sargam.This is the first song I have recorded with Soumitra and it was a fun experience.We enjoyed practising the tricky sargam :)
