Some lists are never ending..so just like the last time…the musical list goes on.Hope you like it
1.’Kattey’ – Ram Sampath, Bhanvari Devi, Hard Kaur – Coke Studio @ MTV Season 3
A rocking fusion of powerful (read angry)rap by Hard Kaur and the quirky dal Bati Rajasthani traditional music…the best of the both world.Only Ram Sampath can do such daredevil music.Listen to Hard Kaur’s story….
2.Rangabati – Ram Sampath, Sona Mohapatra & Rituraj Mohanty – Coke Studio@MTV Season 4
Ram Sampath again..and Sona Mohapatra..the lady who sings only off beat tracks only..She is as good as ever.. ok you have heard of Sambalpuri saree…check out this track from the same region…I just love the lyrics.Oriya ….all the way.First time Mohanty..he is so agile in his music..
3.’Sawan Mein’ – Sachin-Jigar, Divya Kumar & Jasmine Sandlas – Coke Studio@MTV Season 4
During the Navratri … i came across Divya Kumar for the first time in Mumbai ..Somaiya college ground..then no looking back.. a pot of powerhouse singing talent…. Heart breaking lyrics and some excellent instrumental support..one of the underrated song of the coke studio.
4.O Majhi Re,Shaan & Saurav Moni,Coke Studio @ MTV,S01,E01
Ah very famous Bhatiali Track..you can actually feel the cradle like phenomenon..the boat dwindles among the wavy water…such a feel good thing..You can relax with Majhi re..a rendition of Gulzar and Kishore Kumar’s “O Majhi re”…. Shaan and Saurav does full justice.
5.’Moner Manush’ – Anupam Roy Feat. Satyaki Banerjee & Babul Supriyo – Coke Studio@MTV Season 4
Milan hobe kotodine..amar moner manusher shone …. Famous lyric of Lalan Fakir….Anupam Roy gives a touch of Hindi….highly sentimental and sensous in its craft…Enjoy the ethnic Bengal Folk.Satyaki Banerjee.. hats off.Original and transcreation goes hand in hand.
