Speaking about blending Aye Mere Humsafar and Ab Mujhe Raat Din, music composer Abhijit Vaghani says, “Aye Mere Humsafar and Ab Mujhe Raat Din are both iconic songs. For mixtape we always look at songs that match with their lyrics and arrangements and these both blend flawlessly. This mixtape composition demanded a grand arrangement of strings and we got the best – Mumbai String Orchestra to do it and this made the song magnanimous. It was lot of fun to work and feature them in this video. Palak with her extended range of voice and Armaan with his extremely talented skill of singing just made them a perfect pair for this. Their tonality, the scales of the track demanded singers like them. I am glad they came on board.”
Says Armaan Malik, “Singing iconic tracks is always a surreal, learning experience. It’s also a huge responsibility to live up to the original. I’ve literally grown up listening to songs such as Aye Mere Humsafar and Ab Mujhe Raat Din – both of which comprise of beautiful, delicate and intricate melodies by legendary musicians of our industry. Palak and I had an amazing time recreating these magical tracks, with the fabulous musical support by producer/composer Abhijit Vaghani. I’m really looking forward to this episode and just like our previous mixtape seasons I hope it receives the same love, adulation and success.”
Adds Palak Muchhal, “It felt really nice to sing these iconic tracks that are loved by all even after years. Armaan’s voice is very soothing and our collaboration is loved always. Abhijit Vaghani’s arrangement with the guitars and violins made it feel like a rich orchestra. Had a great time filming it.”Catch Armaan Malik and Palak Mucchal’s rendition of ‘Aye Mere Humsafar’ and ‘Ab Mujhe Raat Din’ for T-Series Mixtape Rewind now.
