17.8 Music Monday – Feat. Coke Studio Pakistan, Amit Trivedi, Ouseppachan, Gopi Sundar

Where I bring you the best of International as well as regional Indian music….

Loads of fantastic music this week, but nothing from the Western lands I’m afraid. There was absolutely nothing that caught my eye recently. Most of the times I take a look at the International Top Charts and go…What the hell are people listening to these days!!

Anyway, without further ado, let’s delve right into the songs then.

1. BEWAJAH – Nabeel Shaukat Ali, Coke Studio Pakistan: Season 8

Language: Urdu

One of the best things of Pakistan is its music, and I’ve always loved their sense of sublime melody. So you can totally understand when I tell you that this one song has me going nuts ever since I first heard it yesterday. A beautiful and soothing melody with incredible vocals and orchestration. It’s true that music has no language. My idea of bliss…

2. Kalandar – Amit Trivedi

Language: Marathi

A quintessential Amit Trivedi number, with a fun tune and a good rock base! There are also the usual Amit embellishments that make this song that more interesting.

3. Chantham Thelinju – Ouseppachan

Language: Malayalam

I love the Malayali’s enthusiasm for intermixing classic Carnatic raagas over modern instruments. Sounds sooo good to the ears! This one might sound a bit old-fashioned, but completely grew on me after just a couple of listens.

4. Motta Modatisaari – Gopi Sundar

Language: Telugu

I humbly present a song from my own mother tongue after a long time. But still the twist here is that this song is composed by a Keralite! Anyway, with such an imaginative tune and pleasing interludes this one is an instant ear-worm. And the chorus by children is an added plus!

Have a great week ahead, dearies! If there’s any good song out there that you think I should listen to, don’t forget to let me know! 🙂
