Mumbai, May 29 (IANS) At least 34 years after Madan Mohan passed away, his son Sanjeev Kohli has put together a number of unsung compositions of the genius in an album “Tere Baghair”.
With the release of album on June 25, on the occasion of Madan Mohan’s 85th death anniversary, the creator’s unsung work will get a chance to get noticed decades after his demise.
Madan Mohan died at the age of 51 in 1975. And now Sanjeev Kohli, former CEO of Yashraj Films, is all set to release some of Madan Mohan’s unreleased songs in “Tere Baghair”.
“My father would be creating and humming new tunes all the time. His music sittings with Lataji were endless. As a child I’d often wonder how my father managed to create so many tunes in so little time. To my delight I discovered hundreds of unreleased tunes in our cupboard. That’s how ‘Tere Baghair’ was born,” Sanjeev said.
The 15 tracks that comprise the album are sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Talat Mahmood and Kishore Kumar and were recorded between 1964 and 1972. To erase all signs of antiquity Sanjeev has added supportive music and digitally mastered sound to the original tunes.
