Album Sona Sajan………..
They say, Music is your only friend. If this holds true, then Sona Sajan, Tochi Raina's first Indipop album after his praiseworthy Bollywood success, makes for the kind of friend you’d want to lend a listening ear too. An eclectic album, the songs musically float into different genres. Tochi Raina along with the very gifted music director of the album (Sukhi Kalsi), believed that a person when listening to the album at a stretch, should have an overall experience of most genres that he is familiar with. It is this very belief, which brings to the album an assorted feel. Every song is sung by Tochi Raina, composed by Sukhi kalsi and written by Shweta Raina.
The first track of sona sajan named SONA SAJAN has a hip hop groove blended with R&B. A punjabi song at heart, it invites you to groove to every beat.
O MERI JAANE JAANA(KESARIYA BALAM), is a folk song blended with a very original composition.The song starts with the vocal prowess of Tochi Raina, as he belts out kesariya balam in a unique unheard tune, which is filled by the bela baharr.
TERI YAAD SATAAYE, is a contemporary song about departed lovers. The song’s hypnotizing guitar melodies gives it a very Indian feel & is infact the icing on the cake.
A song that must really be close to Tochi Raina is JAANA MERE DIL SE, an acoustic song dedicated to his late mother. The song has only acoustic guitars, Tochi’s voice and shakers. A pure acoustic raw song.
JUNGLE MEIN AAG LAGI, is a dandiya rock song with very raw percussions. The catch phrase of the song is indeed very catchy and sticks to your head.
JUNGLE MEIN AAG LAGI(REMIX). This song is a remix of the jungle song. More popularly known as a club mix. It has a beat that will rock the clubs and the dance floors.
All in all, sona sajan is an Album you’ll want to get your hands on. At the earliest.
