I don’t know if many of you do this, but i listen to music while showering and i sing to it too. so, one day i got home from footy training at school and after all of that sweating,i decided to grab my phone, which was already on shuffle, and hit the showers. song after song played and suddenly after all the slow and sad songs, “Madhubala” a song from the Bollywood movie “Mere brother ki dulhan” ( My brothers bride) played. And then i was like OMG! (i know this sounds girly, but i cant help it) it hit me! so hard! I could feel the desi vibes and this wave of energy flowing through my body and then i started laughing because i was so happy all of a sudden, i just wanted to dance!
“Madhubala” is a song about love, like most of the Bollywood songs…BUT, what stands out about this song, is the fact that most of it sounds like traditional Indian music, actually all of it sounds like traditional Indian music. nowadays, most of the Bollywood songs that are a hit are produced by a fusion of Indian traditional instruments like the Dhol ( traditional percussion instrument ) and modern day instruments. now I’m not saying that the other songs suck, they don’t. in fact, another Bollywood song i love listening to that doesn’t sound like Indian music at all besides the lyrics, is ” Subha hone na de” , a song from the movie titled “Desi Boyz'”. I’m just saying that “Madhubala” sounds awesomer and its my favorite at the moment AND all of you reading this should Uchoob it right away! im talking about “Subha hone na de” as well!!!
what else can i say? i have never liked it before until i found out how even in the modern world, they stayed loyal to traditional music methods and combined it with modern day music to create a significant sound and evoke significant vibes to all its listeners. Bollywood music is brilliant! I love it!
