An unusual, uplifting surprising sound from India's sweet-voiced princess K.S Chithra! This wonderful oddity is of course beautifully delivered to us by non other than the ever-brilliant Finders Keepers crew! There are not many records where you will find a childs choir, a DX7 bass line, three types of drum machine, a mariachi trumpet cry, a resampled forty-piece orchestra and and an electronic bass line that takes the moog taurus by the horns and rides into the Indian summer. Produced by Tamil Film Industry maestro, Ilaiyaraaja!

The compilaton features a small, select handful of collaborations from the formative years of their relationship between - 1986 and 1991- a vibrant time where analog recording techniques and digital technology first overlapped and Chithra, as a developing vocalist, adapted to the the sounds and arrangements of a classic maverick composer pushing the boundaries.
