Lyrics & Chords
Song 1: Saaranga Teri Yaad Mein
You know, sometimes I think I must have done something good in my past life that I meet such wonderful people now. These are great friends who do not want anything from me, but are happy in my company or even away from me. My well being, my prosperity and happiness is what they are interested in. Nothing more nothing less.
Here I am talking about such friends. This series of songs is something that I did for my friend Anju. She wanted me to do songs that I liked and suited my voice. Her aim was to record and listen to them with my 93 year old grandmother, who happens to be my inspiration and motivation.
We recorded these songs with Tabla played by our beloved Tabla nawaz Sri.Shankar Kuchekar (we affectionately call him Sir.), who made a tremendous effort to put it all together.
When we heard the songs we thought they sounded OK but were a little dry and empty. Well, here comes another friend to the rescue, Anil ji; who I have never met but connected with through music, even though we are thousands of miles and several languages apart. I sent him the tracks and in a day he sent me this amazing transformation of “Saaranga”
Listen to it and let me know. Please be kind as I have varied from the original tune,but then…I sang it with the feelings that I had singing and listening to this song…
The recipe of the song is simple "a little imperfection with feelings to feel,with the love that I got from my friends I made it all real”.
Here it is, Saaranga teri yaad me……
