With its stellar opening and hypnotic buildup spanning more than a minute, Narayan makes a statement: this song will endure. And it has. 20 years later, this massive creation hasn’t lost any bit of its originality.
It’s a lengthy tune, to be sure, but there are several movements at play that will keep the listener entertained throughout. This song is a must for any respectable music collection and, in fact, a distinguished artifact of human musical history.
