Lehra Tiranga – Hard Kaur featuring Bhaven Dhanak

hard-kaur-lehra-tiranga-flag-poster_1080p-0-00-23-19

All patriotic songs are motivational, bringing out emotions that often appear to be bottled inside, and so too it is with “Lehra Tiranga”, composed by the artiste born in Meerut as Taran Kaur Dhillon, but returning from Birmingham as Hard Kaur. After the obvious indulgence in Bollywood, it is a pleasant feeling to note [pun intended] that the artiste has not forgotten her nationalistic roots with lyrics provided by Sonny Ravan. From the keyboard/vocal opening to the introduction of percussion, “Lehra Tiranga” is certainly one of Hard Kaur’s better compositions with a richer scope. The end result is a paradox of a sombre theme but with vibrant arrangements that is sure to provide a wider appeal to listeners that go beyond Hard Kaur.

Gori Tore Nain – Aroon Bakshi

1400aroonbakshi

Film and television actor Aroon Bakshi, who has acted in over 100 Hindi films as well as in Punjabi and Bhojpuri cinema, has reportedly also sung 298 songs. Add one more with “Gore Tore Nain”, a romantic song composed, produced, and sung by Aroon. Having played the role of Mahant Dashrath Tripathi in the year-long TV serial ‘Ishq Ka Rang Safed’ that ended in August last year and apparently featured “Gore Tore Nain”, the song was found strong enough for Aroon to consider adding it to his ever increasing repertoire of songs. Although there is no credit to the musicians or arrangers accompanying Aroon on this track, the one certainty is that the instrumentalists excel and the arrangements are tight enough to ensure repeated listenings of “Gore Tore Nain” despite obvious limitations in Aroon Bakshi’s voice but, in all this, one cannot argue against the artiste’s enthusiasm of being a creative all-rounder.

Fagun Ahise Notun Ronge – Angshuman Pol Deka

angshuman1400

Based in Guwahati, multi-talented artiste Angshuman Pol Deka  has apparently been performing since age five, initially learning harmonium and tabla, before expectedly taking a journey into reality-based programmes such as ‘Sa-Re-Ga-Ma-Pa’ and ‘The Voice’. However, Angshuman’s journey to find his true vocation continues with “Fagun Ahise Notun Ronge”, an Assamese romantic track, featuring lyrics co-authored by him with Barnali Chanda, and music provided by Rajib Hazarika. The result on “Fagun Ahise Notun Ronge” is pleasantly and inoffensively melodic, with welcome yet limited interludes from piano and from guitar on a softer and friendlier landscape that appears to augur just fine for Angshuman Pol Deka as he plays safe by remaining well within his comfort zone.
