Coke Studio Season 6, Episode 3

Song Info:

Finding the union of eastern classical inspiration and deep, encompassing electronic vibes is Zara Madani’s ‘Neer Bharan’. The song is the product of an experiment that took the pattern of an electronic track and placed the layers of an age old classically based bandish within the fold to create a story that’s almost cinematic. With the elements of Teen Taal, the song finds its driving inspiration in the nighttime raag Baageshri stirring up a feeling of dark, delicate longing. The song in its carnal nature is a whirlwind of female sensuality and haunting temptation. The wordings derive from folklore of the subcontinent painting the moment of yearning set against the backdrop of the night’s enchantment. As the lyrics flow, the song’s progression is almost prowling in its search for the song’s object of obsession – the alluring peeve Nand Laal – a character thematically portrayed in the vocals of Muazzam Ali Khan towards the song’s resolution. A song that has an almost theatrical feel in its tale, the Eastern chant like rhythm is brought to life with the constant electronic groove by the Serbian house band and the percussive elements of the Dhol while the String Orchestra encircles the storm layering the depths of human angst in the face of Separation.

نیر بھرن کیسے جاؤں سجنی
neer bharan kaise jaaoon sajani
Oh how should I go to fill water, my dear friend?

جاؤں سجنی
jaaoon sajani
…should I go, my dear friend?

رات اکیلی ڈر موہے لاگے
raat akeli ḍar mohe laage
The night is dark and I feel frightened all alone

پنگھٹ پہ نند لال ٹھیرو
panghaṭ pe nand-laal ṭhaiṛo
Nand Laal waits at the water well to tease me

سجنی کیسے جاؤں
sajani kaise jaaoon
My dear friend, how should I go?

پنیا بھرن جاؤں ارے ہو
paniya bharan jaaoon aray ho
I went to fill water


نیر بھرن کیسے جاؤں سجنی
neer bharan kaise jaaoon sajani
Oh how should I go to fill water, my dear friend?

نیر بھرن
neer bharan
…to fill water

کیسے میں جاؤں سجنی
kaise main jaaoon sajani
How should I go, my dear friend?

کیسے جاؤں میں
kaise jaaoon main
Oh how should I go?

کیسے میں جاؤں نیر بھرن
kaise main jaaoon neer bharan
How should I go to fill water?

پنیا بھرن گئی ارے ہو
Oh I went to fill water

Oh how?

اے ری سکھی کچھ بن ناہیں آئے
e ri sakhi kachh ban naaheen aaye
Oh my friends, I just can’t understand what to do

اے ری سکھی کچھ بن ناہیں آئےموہے
e ri sakhi kachh ban naaheen aaye mohe
Oh my friends, I just can’t understand what to do
