It has been a little over 15 years since Smita released her first album Hai Rabba, which she followed up with many super successful albums. Her latest release is Baha Kiliki the first single in the fictional Kiliki language, which was created by Madhan Karky for S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali. Baha Kiliki is said to be a tribute to the entire cast and crew of the film Baahubali.
The number features Smita on vocals along with “Kalakeya” Prabhakar himself and rapper Noel Sean. The lyrics are written by Madhan Karky. This song has been composed by Achu, while the video has been choreographed by Bollywood choreographer Bosco, captured by Sameer Reddy and conceptualised by director Deva Katta.
Smita has sung in more than six languages, from pop to purely devotional songs. Her rendering of Ishana, a collection of spiritual Sanskrit hymns, have also been well received well.
Apart from receiving various accolades for her pop, playback and live performances, she also received a Filmfare award in 2005 for best female playback singer.
