Nadha is the third album of the Chilean pop/rock group Kudai. It was released in Latin America on May 13, 2008. The first single from the album, "Lejos De Aquí", was released on March 31, 2008. The name of the album, Nadha, is Sanskrit for "sound from the depths of the soul". This title was chosen to demonstrate the depth and sincerity of the album's songs. [1]

The album was nominated for "Best Pop Album by Group or Duet" at the Latin Grammy Awards that was held at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on 13 November.[2]

Background and album information[edit]

Their third studio album Nadha has 12 songs, of which six were written by the producer Koko Stambuk (ex-musician of Glup!). Three other songs are from the recognized producer Carlos Lara, who is considered to be the creator of RBD and has collaborated with musicians such as Lynda Thomas and Ricky Martin. Cathy Lean (Ex-Mal Corazón), from Chile, also wrote two of the album's songs.

Kudai band member Gabriella Villalba has said that this album is a turning point in Kudai's musical career:[1]

"Now is the time that Kudai needs to show and prove many things because if we remain the same, we will be categorized as the teen band that will never grow. I feel that this third album is a very decisive stage for Kudai. We are going to fight to rid ourselves from the title of "the band that wants to be popular" and actually present good material."

Kudai chose to interpret the songs of Alanis Morissette and her band's bassist Eric Avery (ex-Jane's Addiction). The album was mastered at the Los Angeles, California studio Igloo Music under the direction of Gustavo Borner, who has worked with well-known artists such as Diego Torres, Ricky Martin, Sin Bandera, Phil Collins, Plácido Domingo and N'Sync, as well as working on the motion picture soundtracks of Rush Hour 2, Miami Vice and Finding Nemo.
