With the release of Jaane tu ya Jaane na and Ada, the maestro has come out in flying colors with the songs as well as a brand new finding to the Indian Cinema Music, Rashid Ali. It is strange at times, that Rahman even gets notified about each and single men in his group. After sharing the credits of his success to his fellow musicians like Naveen and Shivamani, Rahman gives an opportunity to his lead guitarist Rashid Ali to sing the foot tapping track of Jaane Tu ya Jaane na and the solo duets of Ada.
Rashid Ali is was introduced by A R Rahman during his Third dimension Tour, conducted all over the globe. Rashid Ali is quite senior in A R Rahman troupe and this cool guy is born in Hyderabad. Rahman met him in London and was impressed with his immense talent in playing guitar. As per the info of Siddharth Iyer, an active member of A R R Yahoo group, he did a jazz version of Ooh Lala Laa in the Dubai concert. He has already rendered his vocals to the movie Paarthale Paravasam.
Rashid makes promising vocal gestures in his modulating tones and should be finding enough substance for the new kid Imraan in the flick. As per Amir, he felt so happy that Rahman has choosed a perfect voice for his nephew Imran. Will Rashid, be another Naresh Iyer ? Wait and see :) We in behalf of all the Rahmaniacs, wish Rashid best of Luck.
