Jiya Se Jiya (Connections)

First of all, two words about Connections. It's music.

Pure, straight from the soul, true work of a genius we call A R Rahman, Connections, an album launched on the Nokia Xpressmusic phones (5220, 5320, 5800 as far as I know) is something which is not exactly commercial music, even though it comes straight from the business community rather than the aesthetic movie people.

The first song I heard from the album was Jiya se Jiya, the one featured in the advertisement of the Xpressmusic phones. The song Jiya se Jiya is credited to Karthik who has been Rahman's favorite for quite some time now and sang Behka in Ghajini, one of the most popular as well as critically acclaimed song. (Yes, now even songs are critically acclaimed)

The song starts with some typical Indian music that is just like what you listen at a big Indian festival like Durga Pooja in Bengal or Ganesh Utsav in Maharashtra. Big music with lots of traditional instruments and big sounds of Dhol and nagada and even claps.

And then, the song starts.

Ude re umang, bina dor ke patang, ek doosre ke sang, jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya,
koi gaaye dhun koi naache jhun jhun koi kahe sun sun jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya,
ambar se surtaal barse gulbar se gulhaar barse,
ambar se surtaal barse gulbar se gulhaar barse jud gaya re jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya..

Raat hai aaj gulabi raat gulabi
Naach rahi murgabi haan murgabi
Jud gaya re jud jud gaya re jud jud gaya re jud gaya jiya se jiya
jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya,

Ude re umang, bina dor ke patang, ek doosre ke sang, jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya,
koi gaaye dhun koi naache jhun jhun koi kahe sun sun jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya,
ambar se surtaal barse gulbar se gulhaar barse,
ambar se surtaal barse gulbar se gulhaar barse jud gaya re jud gaya jiya se jiya,
jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya, jiya se jiya,
Jiya se jiya!

Oops! I wrote the entire song. Well, actually I was just planning to write a line or two to give readers a feel of the lyrics but when I started I felt like going on and on and so I did write it. The song actually has a lot of Indian feel attached to it. Rather I should say that the entire album has a different Indianness attached to it and quite touches the soul of an average Indian, though I doubt how many will get to listen to the album due to the limited release.

On that note, I'd like to mention that you can download this song from youtube or songs dot pk or maybe some other places too. I'm not a supporter of piracy but I guess buying a phone for the songs will be a bit too much. So, just doenload this one.

Another interesting thing is that probably because the song is made for a phone release, it generally sounds better on headphones than on speakers as you can feel more surround sound like things there.

A full marks song. Listen to it. I very much hope you'll like it.
