Sonu Nigam’s tryst with Mohammad Rafi
4:52 PM

Sonu Nigam's tryst with Mohammad RafiWhen he came to Bollywood with dreams of making it big in playback singing, many had felt that he could fill the void created by Md Rafi’s death. Singer Sonu Niigaam’s tryst with Rafi takes a new turn this week. Sonu, who considers Rafi to be one of his biggest inspirations, is proving them right.

This week, Sonu will start recording 18 of the legend’s evergreen hits in Mumbai with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. “This is probably one of the most rewarding moments of my career as a singer,” says Sonu.

The orchestra, which had long been planning to do an album of Rafi’s songs and was looking for the right voice, zeroed in on Sonu last month. The album has been titled Rafi Resurrected and will be released in July. The album is the brainchild of the orchestra’s composer-arranger Tim Pottier, who listened to Rafi’s songs for over a year. Pottier then did extensive research before picking 18 songs.

“I didn’t have any idea that the offer would come to me. Saregama had been saying that they were looking for a dream project for me and last month they offered this. It’s really a dream come true,” says Sonu who feels popularising Rafi’s songs in the west is a big responsibility.
