Monsoon Wedding is Mychael Danna's second collaboration with film director Mira Nair, (Kama Sutra was the first), and he has again compiled a winning soundtrack. Danna explores a wide range of emotions, from solemn to celebratory, through different generations of Indian culture. The contemplative "Good Indian Girls" and "Hold Me, I'm Falling" feature Danna's trademark piano ambience over traditional Indian instrumentation, and the vivacious "Baraat" sounds like a Punjabi variation on Dixieland, while "Delhi.com" ventures into dreamy ethno-techno territory. Sukhwinder Singh's "Today My Heart Desires" serves up lively bhangra rock, and Laxmikant Pyarelal's "Today the Weather Plays Tricks on Me" (performed by Mohammed Rafi) swoons with strings and male vocals. In all, the soundtrack's pleasing variety of Eastern music mirrors the film's old and new worlds living within a singular culture. --Bryan Reesman

The beauty of this album lies in the fact it is wedding music. The music is upbeat, high energy, and filled with promise and expectation: a celebration of life! By combining pop tunes and traditional Hindi music, the whole spectrum of Indian is featured on one CD. It contains a qawwali worship piece, "Allah Hu" which I first heard sung by one of Pakistan's most famous singers, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. I especially love "Aaj Mera Jee Kardana" ("Today My Heart Desires") which is from the Punjabi heartland and includes bhangra pop/rock sounds along with dance rhythms.
Another favorite is the solo and group song featured at the mehndi (the ceremony of painting henna on the hands of the bride) called "Mehndi/Madohorama Pencha" performed by Madan Bala Sindhu. It is truly a deeply spiritual expression of a heart-felt tale, it reminds the bride the new life which she is entering ... how the old life within her father's house will melt away, the past will be a fading memory. I most heartily recommend viewing the film which I loved and also buying the CD as well. I would view any film made by Mira Nair and look forward to finding a CD where Madan Bala Sindhu sings tradtional farewell songs of brides. Erika Borsos (pepper flower)
There are 19 tracks in all, a collection of whimsical beats, high-energy dance beats, and soothing rhythms to entertain and energize! Recommended!
It is very Culture rich and soaked in Indian flavor. It's colorful and makes you happy with a laugh or two; as it seeks to portray the traditional music typical of a Punjabi wedding in Delhi, India.
You want to dance with most songs and sit quietly to reflect with others. I listed appreciate because we often don't sit back to appreciate the richness that other cultures provide. My 2 year old appreciates this music in her broken wanna be Hindi mimic.
She dances as does my 6 year old to this music. It's really a great CD but I would recommend seeing the movie first.
The Cd will leave you in a happy mood... Wonderful up-beat songs, many are so danceable and hipnotic. I've been playing this Cd all week ...I just wish it were longer because I would love to have more Cds like this in my Cd collection.
