ek seekh kabab aur doosra Waheeda Rahman

"Do cheezon ke liye main banoo musalmaan. Ek seekh kabab aur doosra Waheeda Rahman"
~ Tom Alter in Kashmir


Indian folk instruments

A few pages from 'The music of India by Herbert A. Popley'. Published 1921 by Oxford University Press.


Daradiyo Na

from Basu Bhattacharya's Tumhara Kalloo (1975)

A folk song used in a bunch of Hindi songs but right now online I could find only one: Shabbir kumar song Jawani Ki Rail Kahin from Coolie (1983). Can't recall others. As for the original, online the Chutney version is the closest one can get.
