Be it pop, rock or jazz, or any other form of music, we can listen to any of these genres depending on our mood. It plays a very very important role in everyone’s life.

Kavita Seth

How can I forget the song Iktara from Wake Up Sid!. Seth, who is known for her Sufi songs and Ghazals, also sang Tumhi Ho Bandhu (Cocktail). So she is such a genius. She also lent her voice for Jeete Hain Chal (Neerja). Bollywood should use this soothing voice for more songs.
