Music Week, Day 2 – Nadia (River)

Yesterday’s track (Day 1) can be heard here.

I was hooked on this track from the very first time I heard it.  Another Nitin Sawhney compilation.

Translation from some kind person on YouTube

Nadiya bair bhai

(Even the Rivers have turned hostile)

Mora saiyyan bulave

(My lover beckons me)

Sune nahi

(But you wouldn’t listen)


Someone trying to rip through the normality of life and expand a few horizons.

  1. Awesome, I am a big fan of Qwali type of music and singing – people like Late Ustaad Nusarat Fatah Ali always seem to make me melt when I listen to them or even just their music.

    I have never heard this song, but for me it falls under the same category.

    These types of songs/music have a deep meaning, deep penetration, and awakens the spiritual side.

    1. Glad you liked it mate.

      I am also a massive Ustaad Nusarat Fatah Ali Khan fan, his tracks were exceptionally deep, strong lyrics and even to this day are so ever green and true. A true Great.

      Nitin Sawhney is a great music writer/composer. I watched him in 2009 in the BBC Electric Proms, breath-taking.

      Hope you enjoy the rest of the compilation this week.
