Opening Mood: Looks like a nite out!
Opening Song: Abhi nahin aana – Sona Mohapatra.
Way back last year, when I heard Afterglow by INXS for the first time, I instantly liked it. It has got all the nice beats, and the ethnic and the rustic feel to it. Plus the mood is kind of reflective.
Around sometime in April this year, I heard “Abhi nahin aana” by Sona Mohapatra for the first time at a friend’s place. I thought it was brilliant. This was one of those “complete” songs. Not just the lyrics , but also the way it was rendered. It was a minimalistic song. Just a guitar strumming in the background and bare minimum indian percussion. Again, it had an ethnic feel to it.
Today, while checking for something else on Youtube, I came across this video. Apparently INXS has collaborated with Sona Mohapatra and come up with a fusion version of Afterglow. I think the fusion, like the original, simply rocks.
