The much-anticipated music of Subhash Ghai's Kisna - The Warrior Poet will release worldwide on December 6, 2004 on Mukta Music released through Sony Music. This cross-cultural film by the showman is set in North India in the late 1940s and is an epic love story between an Indian warrior (played by Vivek Oberoi) and a British girl (played by Antonia Bernath). The stunning soundtrack of the film is composed by music maestros A.R Rahman and Ismail Durbar.
For the first time in his career, Ghai has collaborated with two of the greatest music composers of Indian cinema on one film - A.R. Rahman and Ismail Durbar. It is also the first time that these two composers have worked together. To add to this impressive line up, renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar has penned his magic once again with Kisna, which is his first project with Ghai, who describes the lyrics as “colourful and soulful”.
The music of Kisna will come out in 3 different versions. The premium CD pack will include 16 tracks. The standard CD pack has 12 tracks and the cassette features 7 songs. These include a combination of instrumental melodies and mantras composed by the talented duo. The mantras have been beautifully chanted by Vijay Prakash and chorus. Other distinguished artistes such as Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder Singh, Hariharan, Alka Yagnik and Ustad Rashid Khan amongst many others have contributed their vocal talents to the album. A.R. Rahman has also composed an English song for the soundtrack featuring Blaaze.
Two of the songs from Kisna will be previewed exclusively at The International Film Festival of India on 29th November 2004 by A.R. Rahman, who will be conducting a grand orchestra at the festival. Also performing live on this occasion will be talented dancer and actress Isha Sharvani, who debuts in the film.
