Meaningful songs

Bhoole Bisre Geet brought together a host of musicians in the City recently for an evening of some splendid music.

The performances were a blend of popular old and new film songs, original compositions and adapted versions of popular numbers. There were those among the audience who were seen singing along with the performers.
Bhoole Bisre Geet is active in bringing together popular musicians on a common platform.

The concert featured singers such as Nanu Gurjar from Mumbai, Mathangi Jagdish from Tamil film industry and Coke Studio, Kumaran, Vikram Dixit, Malvika from Dwi band, Mohammat Shammas, Chitra and Kunal Kushwaha from Goonj band.

Some of the songs that were sung during the concert were Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo by Nanu Gurjar, Zameen Se Hamein Aasman Par by Malvika and Shammas, Pyar hamein kis mod pe le aaya by Kunal and Vikram Dixit, Manwa an original composition by Mathangi Jagdish, Kahe Ko Biyahi Bides by Chitra and Dheere Dheere Subah Hui by Kumaran.

Each singer had a different style of rendition and that made the concert all the more special. Sharing her experience, Mathangi Jagdish, a playback singer said, “I performed one of my original composition titled Manwaa Apne Mann Kii Maan, which received a good response. It was a new piece unlike the ones that people have already been heard. We did a lot of experiment with old tunes and tried packaging them in a new form. Manwaa... is composed by me, written by Saaveri Verma and arranged by Satish Raghunathan,” she explained. Talking more about her composition, she said, “The composition is a one-way conversation between the inner self and the person. The song talks about the things I’ve come to understand and believe in over the last 10 years in my life.”  

Those who were present at the concert admired the way the singers presented their pieces.

The involvement is what they liked the most. Bal Krishn Birla of Bhoole Bisre Geet said that best part of performing in the City is the crowd. “The crowd goes across linguistic boundaries and appreciates all types of music. The cultural diversity of the City was evident as there was a huge cheer for both Kannada and Hindi songs.” Sudha Krishnamurthy, another member of the audience said, “We don’t get to hear some of the old Hindi songs anymore and old timers like us always like to go back to the golden era when songs were less about the beats and more about content and meaning.”
