Song and video review: Tonight ~ Aap Se Mausiiquii

I have been loving the first two song releases from Himeshji’s highly awaited private album Aap Se Mausiiquii. Even though the title track and the second track Menu Kehn De, have a relatively slow tempo, the latest release Tonight, is more up-beat.

New Music Monday: Jaanti Hoon and Khuda Kare by Rishabh Srivastava

My latest piano solo: Aap Se Mausiiquii full version

After receiving positive feedback for my piano teaser of Aap Se Mausiiquii, I decided to learn the full song once it had released. The song has been sung and composed by my favourite musician Himesh Reshammiya.

Aap Se Mausiiquii is most definitely one of Himeshji’s most slowest tempo songs ever, and this was something that I had to pay close attention to when recording my own piano solo.

Listen to my full piano solo below. Feedback is always welcome!

Song & Video review: Menu Kehn De ~ Aap Se Mausiiquii

The second single from my favourite Himesh Reshammiya’s brand new album ‘Aap Se Mausiiquii’, released this week.

‘Menu Kehn De’ which translates as ‘Please Let Me Say’, is a romantic Punjabi-Hindi flavoured track composed and sung by Himeshji. The song opens with a melodious piano intro which is followed by a strong guitar hook. Himeshji’s vocals are soft, emotional and expressive. As the album ‘Aap Se Mausiiquii’ has the theme of ‘Redefining Love’, each song will represent a different side of love and this is reflected in the songs lyrics which are written by Manoj Muntashir.
