Mumbai-based, Guwahati-born Singer-Songwriter Prarthana Choudhury’s latest collaboration, ‘Ek Pyar Ka Nagma’ with her father – popular violin player and well-known academician Dr. Satyendra Kr. Choudhury, is fast stealing people’s hearts on the internet! Interestingly, the song is an outcome of an impromptu jamming session between the Father-Daughter Duo and the LIVE recording was only incidental. At a time when processed and fabricated sound is in demand, this duo’s LIVE act stands out for its raw soulfulness and natural sweetness. The Father-Daughter Duo has delivered this cover-version of the popular Bollywood classic- Ek Pyar Ka Nagma in their own fresh style. The Duo’s chemistry is just magical!
Created by Samujjal Kashyap’s ‘Kadambari Creations’, this music-video celebrates the special bond that we share with the ‘special’ people of our lives – our parents, lover, spouse, friends, children ….and the list is endless! The video portrays the beautiful relationship between a Dad and a Daughter, and shows the duo taking a walk-down-the -memory-lane, through the song. The impact is soul-touching!
