Idly browsing through the Internet the other day, we suddenly realised that it would be Navratri very soon. Time to dust off the dandiya sticks, launder the ghagras and kedias and practice new moves to show off on the garba floor. And we discovered a whole host of new songs created just for the season and the celebration.
One of these is Chhabilo, by Jankee. Yes, you will know her as the wife of TV superstar Nakuul Mehta, but she is a well known singer in her own right and not a bad one, at that! Take a look at the video for Chhabilo here:
The music is pretty and appealing, the dancers blend new-age with tradition and the singer has a clear voice and good enunciation. The music is by Arpan Mahida for lyrics by Hiram Brahmbhatt. The Gujarati lyrics are simple and typical for the occasion:
Jena ishare maro suraj uge ne
jena paanpan na palkare raat
Jena dhabkare hun toh naam maru
sambhalu ne Shamna ne fute pankh…
