Bappi da's albums tops Hollywood-Bollywood as he heralds birthday!

 When disco king Bappi Lahiri composed an album  Walking On Love Street, an ode to Chitrani, Lahiri – his wife who has walked the path of life with him, it was an emotional moment. But now, the jazz album is on CMJ's Top 5 New World Adds Chart  #1224 of CMJ's New Music Report Magazine and Chartbound on the Jazz Week World Chart and WONY Oneonta, New York - Top Ten Jazz Playlist - Week as well. And what is more, it is being played on 38 radio stations in so little time and  the record is regularly being played in hotels, airplanes and stores! This at the same time when Bappi Lahiri’s Ooh La La for Dirty Picture is on top of every chart in India.
Incidentally, in Walking On Love Street, penned by both Bappi da and Diana Williams from Los Angeles, Bappi Lahiri has given break to American Idol Shaun Barrows. The album was recorded at Rusk Studios, Hollywood. The acoustics including sitar, flute and santoor were mostly recorded in India with Bappi da himself playing the tabla and five-time Grammy nominee Jeff Lorber on the keyboards, Doron Zor on the guitars.
 Could there be a better way to herald Bappi da’s birthday on Nov 27 than with the chartbusters! Says Bappi Lahiri, “after giving 462 films including Golmaal 3 and Ragini MMS and awaiting Dirty Picture, I am very elated that my songs are top of the charts in both Bollywood and Hollywood. I would term it God’s blessings at it is all at the same time as my birthday.”
