    Music Today in association with Taj President launched a brand new album Rooh - Songs from the Heart by Geetika Varde Qureshi, a renowed vocalist of the Jaipur-Atrauli gharana and wife of globally acclaimed percussionist Taufiq Qureshi. The alum was launched in Mumbai.

    Geetika is one of the graded artistes of All India Radio. She is also the proud recipient of the prestigious 'Surmani' title from Sur Shringar Samsad. From light music to world music, she has done brilliant recordings and performances. Among her several performances in India as well as abroad, the monumental performance at Trafalgar Square, London, for the Trafalgar Square Festival 2006 is worth mentioning.

    "Geetika Varde has a unique voice, which carries any singing style beautifully. True to its name - this album kindles the chords of the soul. Her singing style and Taufiq's contemporary music arrangement marry perfectly to present a fresh sound, which is what Music Today stands for," said Music Today Business Director Gurmeet Singh speaking on the occasion.

    Rooh - The Album

    In Rooh, Songs from the Heart, Geetika presents different forms of gayaki or music in a contemporary style. The feel and expression are the highlights of her singing style, which comes alive with a passionate force in all her compositions. Each song has its own interpretation that the artiste has beautifully carved out through the touching lyrics. 

    Every song has an unconventional arrangement, not necessarily akin to the type of the song. This is an album with an 'old world charm'. It is the fantastic music arrangement by Taufiq Qureshi that sets apart each song in a differential perspective.

    The album was launched by tabla legend Ustad Zakir Hussain along with Mr.Gurmeet Singh -Business Director, Music Today, Geetika and Taufiq Qureshi . The event witnessed the presence of Ranjit Barot, Durga Jasraj, Rakesh Chaurasia, Niladri Kumar, Sridhar, Yogesh Samsi, Rajendra Mehta, Sashi Vyas amongst others.
