Sajna – Sraboni Chaudhuri



While “Sajna” talks about a woman’s yearning for her beloved and an anticipation of being united with her male counterpart, this music video supports the talent of singer Sraboni Chaudhuri whose rendition of the song has been undertaken in a semi-classical  Hindustani style with traditional instruments like the harmonium, tanpura, tabla [by Kishor Pande] and sarangi [by Sandeep Mishra]. The video features Sraboni, of course who, besides singing in a studio, is also shown wearing her make-up, along with the original musicians who perform on the track. This simple, special effects-free video from Rohan D’Souza is precisely the reason what makes it so effective, much like “Sajna”, the song itself, a selection that has its own structure and content which cannot be defined strictly as classical or as folk, but still remains essential hearing for listeners of thumris, thanks to the distinctive vocals from Sraboni Chaudhuri.
