Ranjha Ranjha – Chintoo Singh Wasir


Bringing a certain – and effective – reading on his rendition of “Ranjha Ranjha”, a classic poem by Baba Bulleh Shah, Chintoo Singh Wasir’s arrangements and earthy vocals fit perfectly into making the ethnicity of the track surprisingly contemporary. Much credit to Chintoo’s arrangements and instrumentation, including his usage of the Rubab, a lute-like musical instrument that had its origins in central Afghanistan. Synthesizing Indian folk and sufi sounds with ethnic instrumentation appears to be undertaken with comfort and with cleverness by this multi-instrumentalist who has, through the years, diversified from being a competent guitarist to his proficiency on playing the Rubab, an instrument that he also played on Shania Twain’s 2002 multi-platinum selling ‘Up!’, a word that is also appropriate for the manner in which Chintoo’s career appears to be moving!
