Saaranga

Lyrics & Chords

Anju Project:
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……

Original Singer: Mukesh
Music: Sardar Malik
Lyrics: Bharat Vyas
Sung by: Swati
Tabla: Shankar Kuchekar
Arrangement : Anil Bs
Recorded at Studio: Friends (Pune)

Hi divine soul Swati,

DIVINE, IMMACULATE and IMMORTAL rendition indeed.

Truly a heavenly voice from the realms of heaven.
You truly look to me a classically trained singer with a lot of experience and more than that having a pure heart and soul. This makes your soul pervade through the song in it’s totality.

We could just a have a singing concert just with you singing all places and I am sure you have given such great performances is what my soul tells me.

Would love to see you sing some Marathi Bhakti sangeet also.

For the start let me request Omkara Swaroopa and Akhercha Ha Tula Dandvat.

RATING:
INFINITY on 5

Surely goes into my favorites as it touched my heart and soul.

Hi Swati!
Wonderful singing. I am surprised that you chose a Mukesh song but it has beauty and serenity in the yaman mould.

I have joined here a week ago. Have posted this song too!
Cheers!
Will go to the other songs by you.

Swati ji
First time on your page. Wonderful Rendition. Beautiful voice. Great feelings. I just wanted to let you know that in the word ‘Aaj’ from Aaj Ujadake…. you more emphasised on ‘J’ which sounds like ‘ji’ Secondly the modification in ‘Leke’ from Sukh leke sounds better second time. I personally feel ‘Leke’ in first line should have been simple. I hope you don’t mind on my suggessions. Thanks for sharing this wonderful song.
