These are early days of this blog. To be honest, I do not have the full list of the songs that are available with me. With film songs, it is very tricky. The song name, the movie name, the year of its release and the music composer, one must have everything right, or the cynics would pounce on you. My apologies to all the readers, if they find erroneous info with the songs that I post. Corrections would be most welcome. As with my Indian Raga blog, I am starting off with this one too without enough resources and knowledge. But as they say, the show must go on. In accordance with the flavour of the season, listen to some Holi songs from the old era. A couple of them are Non-Film ones.
K L Saigal – Hori Ho Brij Raj Dulare (Non-Film) :
Juthika Roy – Holi Aayi Ri (Non-Film) :
Khursheed – Bhigoi Mori Saree Re (Shaadi 1941) :
Shamshad Begum – Holi Aayi Re Kanhai (Mother India 1957) :
I got tears of joy to listen to the Holi song of Juthika Roy for the first time. Please accept my thanks for giving it on your site. I am her fan since 1938. I saw her in Lucknow in 1948 when she came for live performance at All India Radio. Later I purchased most of her records, 78 RPM then. Unfortunately her CD Bhajan Alekhha SaReGaMa; 2CD-pack is no more available from Saregama. Do you know she is leading a hard life ?. I wish for some support to be organised for her.
