With each passing day, Salim Merchant and Sulaiman Merchant’s Bhoomi 2021 trip becomes more heartfelt. With their latest offering Sai Narayana, the composer pair has contributed another lovely tune to their Bhoomi 2021 project and reinvented the concept of bhajans.
Sai Narayana is a devotee. Sai Bhajan discusses God’s unity. Raj Pandit’s calming voice leads this spiritual offering, which also includes a choir and a string section.
Sharing his thoughts about Sai Narayana, Salim Merchant reveals, “When I heard this composition it made me feel the power of the divine. The bhakti and devotion that this song evoked was unique and powerful that I felt very connected to my inner self.
The song is in praise of Shri Satya Sai Baba and gives a message of oneness of all living beings.”
Raj Pandit who has given his melodious voice to the Sai Bhajan shares, “I was introduced to this Bhajan last year, right in the middle of the pandemic, when the world was going through a very tough time. The composition really stayed with me and I decided to produce and record it at my home setup under lockdown, with no intention of releasing it whatsoever. The power of this Bhajan was such that it helped me cope with all that was going on at the time. And I’m thrilled that it’s now releasing as part of Bhoomi 2021, an album that is very special to me and I hope people connect with it just the way we did while producing it.”
