It also includes the talents of flautist Prasad Bhandarkar, a pupil of maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia, and violinist Anuradha Sridhar, the niece of violin maestro Lalgudi Jayaraman.


The songs have a strong melody base with simple yet powerful lyrics. The music album is complemented by the visualizations to the songs.
