ABHISHEK SINGS, COMPOSES & ACTS IN KICKASS VIDEO OF UNPLUGGED ROCK CONCERT-‘PALCHIN’
After entering the film industry with albums with lyrics by Gulzar and making
his bow with HAASIL, music director Abhishek Ray followed them up with films like PAAN SINGH TOMAR, I AM KALAM, YEH SAALI ZINDAGI & SAHIB BIWI AUR GANGSTER. Abhishek has come up with the first hard rock Bollywood track – PALCHIN FEAT sung by him and SHREYA GHOSHAL in live unplugged rock concert music and featuring Abhishek Ray.This kick ass video has been shot with on Abhishek Ray performing at an electrifying rock concert. This song is the lead item song from Shekhar S Jha s forthcoming film PREMMAYEE. It has already become a rage on the net and popular Tv channels. His last four super hits show his extreme versatility as a composer.
In PAAN SINGH TOMAR he had blended central Indian folk with grand
symphonies to weave magic in the brutally honest, raw epic. All songs of this
film were composed by him and did justice to the raw hinterland of dacoit
country. The song Chand Taare from I AM KALAM was a super hit which
captured the innocence and profound dreams of Chotu, the dhaba boy. It is one of the most beautiful children’s songs ever composed and was used as the main promotional song for pulling this unconventional film. Abhishek used haunting classical melodies and the velvety voice of Shreya Ghoshal to compose Raat Mujhe from SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER. This song kick starts this dark film of furtive romance.Sung and composed by Abhishek, the funky title track of YEH SAALI ZINDAGI, captures the gritty and unpredictable mood of this Sudhir Mishra film.
