‘Birds and the bees’ is a serene yet layered piece that speaks about love without boundaries. Shakti shree gopalan has effusively rendered the spirit of the song that resonates with the liberation of the soul through love beyond all barriers and differences.
The song features the collaboration of notable musicians like Michael Anthony Dais, singer-songwriter who made the journey from Bangalore to pour his heart into this arrangement with his beautiful and soulful guitar work. The immensely-skilled Siddharth Kumar brought in his poignant contributions on keys and the musical powerhouse Sanjeev T uplifted the song with his additional production. The song also features Naveen Napier, one of the most gifted bass players around; and Avinash Sathish of 20db studios – one of the best recording engineers in our country – who tracked live guitars and voice. The talented Toby Joseph, with his master craftsmanship, worked his magic into the mix and master of the track.
The universe has so aligned that we have been honoured to share this song release with the world during pride month… a time when we could all use a reminder that love will set us free.
