‘Kaattumel Anjaru’

Salt Mango Tree (Malayalam) Music: Hesham Abdul Wahab


Debutant composer Hesham Abdul Wahab is already popular in Kerala, thanks to his 2007 stint in Asianet’s Idea Star

Singer. The singer, who debuts as composer in Salt Mango Tree (the title, obviously, inspired by that iconic comedy scene featuring Mohanlal and Sreenivasa­n in Doore Doore Oru

Koodu Koottam), does a phenomenal job in both department­s in the song ‘Kaattumel Anjaru’, a delightful tune that seems to be a mix of Neelambari and Sankarabha­ranam ragas. Hesham also employs mridangam and nadaswaram to great effect, to add native Keralaness to the song.
