‘Sanu Ek Pal Chain’ Review: The revisited song serves up nostalgia
By Bryan Durham - February 13, 2018
Going by the video and what one knows about the story of RAID, the case for a revisiting of an Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan classic, holds water.
Having the late NFAK’s nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan on board is a masterstroke. It’s like having the next best thing to the original.
The song reunites the ‘Rashke Qamar’ gang: Tanishk Bagchi, Manoj Muntashir and RFAK.
The revisited song serves up nostalgia, dressed prettily and neatly tied in a bow with sparse tweaking (Hindi lyrics, lilting guitar, neat percussion and gentle piano… so as to retain as much of the original’s flavor as possible?) for a new audience.
