This is such a lovely song. I first heard it on the Saregamapa Challenge 2009 show during the Sufi Music episode when Soumen Nandi sang it. Great performance it was. Somehow the song has stuck in my head – moving lyrics, moving sounds. I found the video of a live performance from the original singer, the cute, pint sized Kailash Kher with the powerful voice…but it didn’t quite match up to the original song.
I was rather disappointed with the original video ! Never imagined it to have anything to do with romance when I first heard the song…and I really didn’t want to lose that mood, escapist that I am! 🙂 It is a melodious song with really nice lyrics – even our very own Vidur Sury sings it quite cutely. In fact, he perfectly imitates participants who sang it in various programs.
Well…here is the MTV unplugged version. Enjoy!
Saiyyan – Kailash Kher
Enjoy …and don’t forget to turn up those speakers….
