Ever since I was a young kid of about age five, I’ve been fascinated with their voices. I still recall trying to dress up like Mahesh and style my hair like him. And Nitu, I have no words for – she’s one of the most beautiful woman I have ever seen with a voice truly like an angel.
Today their music sounds even more heavenly; the chemistry of their duets, transcendental. The silken voice of Nitu melts with Mahesh’s rich and ethereal voice; creating such magic that mesmerizes audiences the world over, from Atlantic City to Hong Kong.
Nitu and Mahesh Gadhvi are the definitely the most talented singers in the world. I do not know of any other singing duo that can awe and inspire such diverse audiences and make those occasions so memorable. I still recall how much I was lost in a crowded party dancing to foot stomping numbers during one of their performances in London, then at another performance, half way across the globe, I was in the midst of people praising the Urdu poetry of their Ghazals with “Wah wah” lying down on luxurious rugs and soft cushions at a mehfil on the banks of the magnificent Hudson River in upstate New York. Don’t remind them about that event though – the next day we spent the day at an eye hospital in Manhattan learning about conjuctivitis.
The songs in the film Jaanbaaz (1986) are such timeless classics that even today, twenty years later, when you hear them they seem way ahead of their time.
“Teri Yaad Ayee” (one of my favorites) from the album of the same name, was one of the most requested numbers on the radio program “Dial-a-Disc” on Radio Tanzania in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania.
