The Kronos Quartet has just completed an album of Bollywood film music, You've Stolen My Heart, featuring the vocals of Asha Bhosle. A superstar of Indian film, Bhosle is among the biggest-selling recording artists of all time.
The release channels the music of R.D. Burman, the late composer who was also Bhosle's husband. Burman, a prolific and popular figure in India and around the world, created music for some 300 films.
While You've Stolen My Heart features a range of Burman's writing -- including the unique Dum Maro Dum (Take Another Toke) " -- it revolves around romantic love songs, such as "Mehbooba Mehbooba (Beloved, O Beloved)" and the title song, "Chura Liya Hai Tum Ne (You've Stolen My Heart)."
