Hunting for Yaman / Kalyan

Back to digging gems from the YouTube treasure trove. Sort of in the mood for Raag Yaman/ Kalyan. Perfect for the evening or the first quarter of the night. This one is just incredible. Chupa Lo Yun Dil Mein Pyaar Mera. I suddenly thought of it and it came to me, flooding little spaces.

The lyrics are fantastic. I won’t even attempt translating them. Another beautiful number in the saam raag – Chandan sa badan. Unfortunately, a particular advert for some sandalwood-turmeric gooey tube in the 80s ruined this song for me for a brief while.

A Yaman/ Kalyan feast would be incomplete without this beautiful song – Mharo Pranam by Kishori Amonkar. The same song by Shobha Gurtu sounds simply divine and effortless – but I can’t seem to find it online.

PS – Yum! An entire list of film songs in Yaman / Kalyan. Including total gems like Kinu Sang Khelun Holi, Woh Jab Yaad Aaye, Zara si (Kahin yeh woh toh nahin), Ehsaan tera hoga.

    Somebody had explained Yaman Kalyan to me with “Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujhpe”.

    But hello, you left out the one non-filmi song that is a classic : Aaj jaane ki zid na karo.

    Yes, songs have a way of doing that. Especially this one, sitting forgotten and quiet in some corner of memory.

    Thank you.
