  • Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Sharabi - an Aziz Nazan Qawwali
    Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Sharabi - an Aziz Nazan Qawwali Friends I will not be regular for some time on this site but I will listen every upload for which I receive a notification. I am busy with the family and providing care to my ailing dog. So until he gives up I won't and hence my participation here will be reduced. This is a famous qawwali from the past. I loved it but singing it in its original scale was impossible for me. So I did an interesting edit to the MG track by raising its pitch by three notes, adding some percussion and other instruments to it but singing an entire octave low. This poetry is all about praising sharab. I found an incomplete translation of it on the net and sharing with you all. Hope you enjoy this qawwali that I recorded in 2010. Na haram mein, naa sukoon milta hai butkhaane mein Chain milta hai to Saaqi tere maikhaane mein No respite is there in the pure sanctuary nor in the holy shrine If there is any solace anywhere, O Saqi, it is the house of wine Jhoom, jhoom, jhoom Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi, jhoom baraabar jhoom Kaali ghata hai, aa aa…, mast fazaa hai, aa aa… Kaali ghata hai mast fazaa hai, jaam uthaakar ghoom ghoom ghoom Jhoom baraabar … Sway, sway, sway Sway in rhythm, O Drinker, Sway Rain clouds are overhead, the atmosphere is divine Rain clouds are overheard,the atmosphere is divine Pick up the drink of wine, ecstasy display Sway in rhythm, O Drinker, in your joy sway Aaj angoor ki beti se mohabbat kar le Sheikh saahab ki nasihat se baghaavat kar le Iski beti ne uthaa rakhi hai sar par duniya Yeh to achchha hua ke angoor ko beta naa hua Kamsekam soorat-e-Saaqi ka nazaaraa kar le Aake maikhaane mein jeene ka sahaara kar le Aankh milte hi jawaani ka mazaa aayega Tujhko angoor ke paani ka mazaa aayega Har nazar apnii basad shauq gulaabi kar de Itani peele ke zamaane ko sharaabi kar de Jaam jab saamne aaye to mukarna kaisa Baat jab peene ki aajaye to darnaa kaisa Romance today the daughter of the worthy grape From the Sheikh’s advice, let obedience escape The daughter has alone created a great sensation Its well a son to the vine was denied by creation Bestow a glance at least on the Saqi’s radiant face Come to the tavern and take support for life’s race As the eyes mingle, you’ll feel the youth’s pleasure The grape-water’s thrill you’ll find in full measure Make every sight of yours pleasantly rosy-pink hued Drink to the extent the entire world appears stewed When the goblet is there, Why let the hand be stayed? When the matter is now of drinking, why be so afraid?

  • Aansu Samajh Ke Kyoun Mujhe-a Talat Mehmood song
    Aansu Samajh Ke Kyoun Mujhe-a Talat Mehmood song Salil Chowdhury's music is vibrant, artistic, technical whatever you may want to call it...it is always beautiful. I loved this song since long so when I decided to sing it I had to prepare my own track. To keep the flavor intact what I did was to place the start from the original into my track and blend its tabla beat with drums in my track. The change is noticeable but not unpleasant. The beat is Waltz, my favorite. Hope you enjoy my cover, a remix because of an unlike original like track. Quite an old recording I believe from the eSnips time. Original Singer: Talat Mehmood Music Composer: Salil Chowdhury Lyricist: Rajendar Krishan Film: Chhaya 1961

  • Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si - a Kishore Kumar song
    Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si - a Kishore Kumar song Friends this is my 200th upload. I never thought I would ever be able to upload that many songs on one single site after loosing sites like eSnips and Muziboo. Myself and some other friends started to upload here thinking this site might die soon too but it went on. This song has been one of my most favorite songs and the one I was asked to sing so many times during my College/University days in Karachi. It's a bit strange song too as it has tremendous amount of "Shikwa" right from the start till end of this song. I remember changing a line Guzre Jidhar Se to Guzroon Jidhar Se. I did this because the lover in Hindi/Urdu poetry never wants his beloved blamed. Guzre Jidhar Se would mean beloved getting the blame where ever she walks by as compared to Guzroon Jidhar Se...meaning Hero taking the blame instead. Hope you all enjoy my cover. I think I first shared it on eSnips...a long time:) Original Singer: Kishore Kumar Music Director: R.D. Burman Lyricist: Majrooh Sultanpuri Film: Anamika 1973

  • Aye Husn Zara Jaag Tujhe - a Rafi song
    Aye Husn Zara Jaag Tujhe - a Rafi song A beautiful song I was introduced few weeks ago by Chandrasekharan Nair Ji on this forum. There are many such Rafi Saab songs that did not become very popular but it does not mean they have less value than the popular ones. A so so MG track it is. Have tried to blend in with the track in the mix. Hope you enjoy this cover. Original Singer: Mohammad Rafi Music Director: Naushad Lyricist: Shakeel Badayuni Film: Mere Mehboob 1963

  • Kahan Ho Tum Chale Aao - Shahnaz Begum song
    Kahan Ho Tum Chale Aao - Shahnaz Begum song Wazif introduced it several weeks ago but I also ended up covering this one as it has been very nostalgic to me since it was aired on Radio and TV in Pakistan. I don't remember exactly but it was early 70's and Shehnaz Begum was still residing in Pakistan. What a beautiful voice got lost to the separation of East Pakistan. Those were her teenage days and people liked not only her voice and gayeki, she was also very charming and photogenic. She spoke Urdu well and sang so many patriotic songs, geet and ghazals while she was there. Over time lot of things faded but her voice still remains with those who saw and heard her on TV. Almost every song she sang became very popular, including this one which I am sharing with you today. She seem to have changed a 180 degrees to what I remember seeing her in the 70's. Her present videos show her wearing a Hijab and playing Harmonium and singing along...that looks quite weird...LoL...but that's OK if she wants it like that. I love her voice and singing which she does so powerfully even today. Original Singer: Shehnaz Begum Music Composer: Sohail Rana Poet: Behzad Lackhnavi

  • Dil To Hai Dil Dil Ka Aitbar - a Lata Mangeshkar song
    Dil To Hai Dil Dil Ka Aitbar - a Lata Mangeshkar song When mood to sing gets broken it takes a while to come back at it. Lot many songs are still pending that I would like to sing and record...plus there are several mixes for friends that are pending but I know mixing them will bring me back into mood. Luckily I have a few mixes ready that were sung not too long ago and would like to share this particular one which I liked very much for its uniqueness from KalyanJi-AnanadJi. What a coincidence with the word "Ji", the real name of poet Anjaan was also LalJi. I am sure some of you would know that Sameer the lyricist mostly from 90's songs is the son of Anjaan. Hope you enjoy my cover. Original Singer: Lata Mangeshkar Music Director: Kalyanji - Anandji Lyricist: Anjaan (real name Lalji Pandey) Film: Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978)

  • Na Kisi Ki Aankh Ka Noor Hoon - from Lal Quila
    Na Kisi Ki Aankh Ka Noor Hoon - from Lal Quila About two weeks ago a friend from Pakistan shared a cover from an unknown artiste for this song. I already knew this song very well hence enjoyed the cover too but I was disappointed a bit when he sang one word in the last antara wrong which made me think the guy sang this famous Bahadur Shah Zafar poetry (actually Muztar Khairabadi. Read important note at the end of my description) without understanding. The correct line in the last antara is "Paiye Fatiha Koi Aaye Kyoun". Paiye means "for" and Fatiha is "prayer"...so the line means why would one come to offer prayer. The guy sang Aye Fatiha Koi Aaye Kyoun...it sounded so stupid though he sang the entire song so perfectly in tune. Got to listen one more cover and heard the same thing in that too. Probably these cover singers didn't understand the use of this word...sure it is a unique one and seldom used but it is one word in Urdu. I assume they thought Rafi Saab made a mistake and sang Paiye but that was not the case. A week later I received a very good karaoke from Adina requesting me to sing this Nazm and I began to think did telepathy had a role here or what? One of the most challenging songs for me that appears and need to be sung with as much simplicity considering the nature of the song. The song describes the last days of the Poet and last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar who was ripped off his thrown and sent to exile by the British. It is known that the King used to take advice and some corrections about his poetry from Mirza Ghalib. You just need to listen a bit more carefully and I am sure you will understand the poetry, its not difficult. Thank you Adina for this track...I hope I sang creating the right mood. Hope friends enjoy this Nazm. In a startling revelation, veteran lyricist and poet, Javed Akhtar says the ghazal was written by his grandfather Muztar Khairabadi and not Bahadur Shah Zafar as has been widely known.

Tripathi Poet: Muztar Khairabadi (who penned these lyrics assuming how King would have written) Film: Lal Quila (1960)
