Sandhikaali Yaa Ashaa (Marathi Bhavgeet) with Latha Ganti
Lyrics & Chords
Presenting one of the best benchmark number in Marathi Bhavgeet – Sandhikaali Yaa Ashaa – An special composition of HM, originally sung by legendary Lataji and Arunji
After my first Marathi duet cover Shukratara with Sudha an year ago, Latha Garu and I wanted to cover another Marathi Bhavgeet duet of Arun ji. It took me long time to get a nice k-track for this exclusive song.
Our Latha Garu has done a fabulous job in this song. It’s unbelievable how quickly and effectively she has picked up the nuances of Marathi diction…Hat’s off! Singing wise she has such a sweetly innocent tone that any song she sings would be sweetened naturally… As such the charm is all over this song. The way she has rendered high notes at places like “chand” is mesmerizing.
Original Singers: Lata Mangeshkar and Arun Date
Music: Pt. Hridaynath Mageshkar
Lyrics and informal translation (in brakets):
Sandhikali ya asha dhundalya disha disha
(All the directions seem mystified on such an evening)
Chand yei ambari….
((And) The moon is rising in the sky….)
Chand rati ramya ya sangati sakhi priya
(On this lovely moon night my sweet heart is with me)
Preet hoi bawri….
((And my) emotions are overwhelmed……)
Mugdh tu ni mugdh mi abol god sambhrami
(Both of us are speechlessly in a sweet puzzlement. )
(Like confluence of rivers, (we have) become one….)
Raat-raanichya mule shawas dhund parimale
(The aroma of breath is from the Raat-Ranee flowers )
Phulat preetichi phule….
((And) flowers of love are blossoming…)
Pranay geet he ase kani aiku yet ase…
(Can hear the Romantic songs play….)
Geeti shabd naa jari
(Even though there are no words in the song)
Saanj-rangi rangooni nakalatach danguni
(Unknowingly we are tinted with evening glow)
(By playing the strings in heart……)
Yugulgeet gaooni ekrup houni
(By singing the duet and by becoming one)
Deu preet dauni…
((Let us) portray the true love….)
Pranaychitra he dise rangsangati tthase
(The romantic picture is visible in impressive colour combination)
Kunchala nase jari
(Even though there is no paintbrush)
