Based on the Indian classical music Desh raag, One Song begins with just a simple melody sung by Charanraj accompanied by an Indian choir. Gradually, the music expands to include the sitar, bansuri, harmonium and S. African flute by Grammy® Winning Wouter Kellerman, mesmerizing vocals by Grammy® Winning songstress Darlene Koldenhoven, and a lush string orchestra.
