Tum Chalna shot in Ladakh crosses a million views…
Tum Chalna is a soulful love song composed and directed by award winning Bollywood music composer Abhishek Ray featuring the fresh dulcet voice of the beautiful singer Aaria. This music video shot in the majestic trans-Himalayan locales of Ladakh has already crossed a million views and is blazing on every popular music site. Tum Chalna has been orchestrated using a live violin symphony and the grand uncommon picturisation of the song has resonated with the audience. This is the second collaboration of the duo after the success of Jaaga Jaaga. This monsoon, Abhishek has also released a soulful rainsong- ‘Meghaa’ featuring Gulzar Sahab & Shreya Ghoshal.
In fact Abhishek Ray was introduced to Bollywood by the legendary poet Gulzar by their unique albums namely ‘ UDAAS PAANI’ and ‘ RAAT CHAND AUR MAIN’. Since that tender age, Abhishek has made his mark in original music by singing and composing music for acclaimed and superhit films.
Abhishek’s forte lies in his extreme musical versatility. His film work ranges from a superhit gangster comedy like WELCOME BACK to the national award winning biopic PAAN SINGH TOMAR, from the dark romance of SAHEB BUWI AUR GANGSTER to the national award winning children’s classic I AM KALAM, from Nana Patekar’s dark cop story SHAGIRD to Irrfan’s quirky flick YEH SAALI ZINDAGI. Apart from songs, Abhishek has also done the background score for many of his films.
‘ An original melody is like a wild bird’, he says,’ It falls from the sky when you least expect it and starts forming in your mind.’
Abhishek has created a huge body of work in non-film music. His music company has released numerous superhit tracks with legendary Bollywood artists like Gulzar, Shreya Ghoshal, Hariharan, Sonu Nigam,Shaan, Kavita Krishnamurthy and many others. He recently won the national Mirchi Music Awards for best non-film song. In a world which is ravaged by mediocre remakes and covers, he believes in creating soulful original music which the masses are not getting from films anymore.
Abhishek is a government bonafide tiger-leopard tracker & conservationist. He invested all his savings in converting a barren hill into thick evergreen forest which the world today knows as Sitabani Wildlife Reserve. He has been featured by top notch Indian and international media including discovery channel as the founder of Sitabaniwildlifereserve, India’s first private reserve with wild tiger presence.
Conserving nature, defending wildlife and creating original music, Abhishek Ray is on an unique and magnificent journey.
