Retrograde. Bamboozlement! More Bamboozlement!

Aayega Aanewaala remixed by Paul Riordan

In 2006, Paul Riordan, a musician from UK with over 35 years of experience in the music industry, got the permission to use samples from the SaReGaMa catalogue of early Bollywood soundtracks. A year later the outcome, something truly unique, was an album named Hour Glass.

From Hour Glass album here is a truly wonderful track titled 'He who holds the Mirror', it's a remix and a mesmerizing video collage by Paul Riordan of the famous Lata Mangeshkar song Aayenga Aanewala from Kamal Amrohi's year 1949 great film Mahal.
