Vocalist Surjit Madhvi is another debutant artist who has connected with the values of Sleepingdust. S. Madhvi has dedicated many years to the music industry doing stage performances. When she heard KVM in its initial stages, S. Madhvi got engaged with the concept strongly and decided to take a major step in her career and more importantly explore an untapped part of her talent. Madhvi is one debutant we salute not just for the commitment she has shown for her first track, but for not being fazed by the challenge of recording at 4 degree, as was the temperature on the day at the studio. This is a fine example of one of the things sleepingdust strongly believes in, facing and excelling in challenges even if all the odds are against you.
The lyrics of KVM are the most unusual creation of Jogi’s imagination. They were born out of a mere observation; whilst visiting a friends house, Jogi saw a housewife performing the age old tradition of kneading dough to prepare chapattis. He noticed she was kind of lost and in fact miles away in her thoughts. And when he asked her what she was thinking of, she said she was thinking about her beloved husband. This simple emotion that lovers experience even when absorbed by daily life struck a chord with Jogi, and soon he gathered all the words and put pen to paper. This has translated into Khyaal Vich Maahi, which has an old world charm added to a contemporary setting.
Sleepingdust is still a young company and endeavors to continue doing justice to beliefs and cultural values of India. We truly hope our audiences will enjoy listening to this beautiful track as much as we enjoyed creating it.
