Reliance: A.R. Rahman and Chinmayee with "Tere Bina"

Back to India today for the random song. Sung by A.R. Rahman and Chinmayee, "Tere Bina" is from the soundtrack to the 2007 Indian movie Guru which is loosely based on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani, the founder of Reliance Industries. A.R. Rahman is an Indian musician, composer, singer-songwriter, producer and philanthropist. Noted for integrating Eastern classical music with electronic music, world music and traditional orchestral arrangements, he made Time Magazine's list of the world's most influential people. Among his many awards are two Oscars and two Grammy's. He is best known in the US for his soundtrack to the hit film Slumdog Millionaire. Chinmayee (also known as Chinmayi) is a Indian playback singer, voice actor, television presenter and radio disc jockey. Tere Bina can be found on the soundtrack for Guru (2006) and on the 2009 compilation Putumayo Presents: India. The video plays the song over scenes from the movie.
