On August 15, I woke up and first thing came to my lips is the song “Khilte Hain Gul Yahan”. I have never sang this famous song before, I am sure every hard core Kishore Da fan has attempted at some point. I went on YT watched this song few times and recorded same day. Then called Muzaffar bhai, he gave me some pointers for specific nuances, that helped me for final take. Thanks to Muzaffar bhai for his help and support at all times.
It is a lovely song, with sweet lyrics about love, but using elements of nature to express love. This is typical of Neeraj, one of my favorite poets and song-writers. He made a great team with SD Burman.
I hope you will enjoy my cover.
