Travel & Music || Enchanting Himachal and its Charming Songs - Part 4

  I am back with another post in this series. For the first three parts, please visit the following links: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. I hope you have enjoyed the songs I have chosen in these posts. You will notice that a lot of young Himachali people are contributing a lot to the musical heritage of Himachal. Many of these young musicians create great fusion versions by using traditional Himachali instruments as well as modern western music. I haven't watched any of their live performances yet, but pride and happiness are apparent in these recordings as well.     This photograph was clicked when we were on our way from Dalhousie to Chamba. We stopped en route for a short trek to Dainkund and it was completely worth it. Superbly scenic and peaceful, this trek is must-do for anyone who happens to visit Dalhousie. And it is an easy one. Anyway, it reminds me of this beautiful song "Mae ni Meriye / Chamba Kitni Dur". The version below is by Harshdeep Kaur.     My favorite lines from the song: O laiyan mohabbatan door daraje..haye.., O laiyan mohabbatan door daraje, Akhiyan ton hoya kasoor..haye, Akhiyan ton hoya kasoor,  O main tan mahi de watana nu jassan..haye.., O main tan mahi de watana nu jassan, O meri akhiyan da noor..haye.., O meri akhiyan da noor,  Mai ni meriye shimlae di raahe, Chamba kitneek door..haye, Chamba kitneek door    Raavi River is the heart and soul of Chamba town, which itself is the muse for many songs, such as the first song in this post. The above song shows the river flowing through some of the uninhabited terrains and you can see the shapes it has carved over the centuries. The above photograph reminds me of the song "Saaen Saaen Mat kar Raaviye". The below version is by Richa Sharma.    My favorite lines from the song: Tedhi medhi chaal teri sau nakhre Tedhi medhi chall teri sau nakhre Chhind tere Raaviye to mat kar nakhre Tere kande wasne jo dil mera karda Minjo tera darr lagda Saayen Saayen mat kar Raaviye.     This picture was clicked in Churu, Rajasthan when a lacquer bangle maker was demonstrating the process of making these bangles. This photograph reminded me of a lovely Himachali song about bangles - Bangadiyan. I had first heard this song in the very sweet voice of Juhi Singh of Roohi-Juhi fame. Upon searching for this song on youtube, I found this nice version by iSur Studios.     Following are my favorite lines from this song  bahnwan motrian,  ho banga chotrian, ho soye dian bikdian char,  ho laibo dinga bangarian bahnwan motrian,  ho banga chotrian, ho soye dian bikdian char,  ho laibo dinga bangarian kuch sailadiyan, kuch piladiyan, ho layi banjara aaia, laiye de dhola bangarian  So far this has been an amazing journey for me personally where I am going deep into these beautiful songs that I had so far mostly heard only casually. Hopefully there will be a new post soon.

Tedhi medhi chaal teri sau nakhre
Tedhi medhi chall teri sau nakhre
Chhind tere Raaviye to mat kar nakhre
Tere kande wasne jo dil mera karda
Minjo tera darr lagda
Saayen Saayen mat kar Raaviye.

Following are my favorite lines from this song

bahnwan motrian, 
ho banga chotrian,
ho soye dian bikdian char, 
ho laibo dinga bangarian
bahnwan motrian, 
ho banga chotrian,
ho soye dian bikdian char, 
ho laibo dinga bangarian
kuch sailadiyan, kuch piladiyan,
ho layi banjara aaia,
laiye de dhola bangarian

So far this has been an amazing journey for me personally where I am going deep into these beautiful songs that I had so far mostly heard only casually. Hopefully there will be a new post soon.
