There are many beautiful songs in the world and this is always a subjective choice for everyone of course, so on this beautiful Sunday afternoon in the city as spring is starting to show a sign and, I feel this is one the most beautiful songs, Nitin Sawhney's "Homeland". It was released in 1999 on his album Beyond Skin, the album focused on the theme of nuclear weapons, religion and identity. Nitin is a British Indian musician, producer and composer. His work is known to blend Asian and other worldwide influences with elements of jazz and electronica exploring the themes of multiculturalism, politics and spirituality. He has done some amazing work with the London Symphony Orchestra, has worked on numerous film scores and collaborated with the likes of Sting, Nustrat Fateh Ali Khan, Jeff Beck, Julian Lloyd Webber and Paul McCartney. The Joe Claussel remix of "Homelands" was the first time I've heard this stunning song during the Body&Soul parties. It's an understatement to say I was mesmerized on the dance floor. The original is much more meditative and epitomizes this musical genius work. Enjoy!
