A Foreign Affair is a jazz music album by American jazz fusion band, Spyro Gyra. The album is the story of five men and their love affair with music. The album contains a Hindi song Khuda sung by Arijit Singh, composed by Sandeep Chowta and co produced by Chowta and Spyro Gyra. It is the first time a Western group has released a song with lyrics entirely in Hindi.
The album was released on September 13, 2011. Upon release the album was positioned at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.
AllMusic's Jonathan Widran opined that "the most interesting tracks are the beautiful, poignant vocal tracks by Keb' Mo' and Fernandez" and stated the band "still had something fresh to say while fearlessly entering their fifth decade of recording". JazzTimes's Brian Soergel concluded the review stating "this is the CD that many casual Spyro Gyra fans have been waiting for". Howard Dukes from Soul Tracks praised the songs in the album and stated "The ease in which the band amalgamates different international influences on A Foreign Affair is a reminder of why we call music the international language".
