'Bhajo Re Bhaiya' by Vedanth Bharadwaj

'Bhajo Re Bhaiya' by Vedanth Bharadwaj

Remember the essential, and call it whatever name you will – Raam, Govind or Hari. In this deceptively simple song, with just a few, succinct words, Kabir reminds us that death is dancing over our heads, though we try to remain obtusely unaware of it. So the time to connect with the essence, as always, is now! *** Find lyrics/translation of this song at http://ajabshahar.com/songs/details/15/Bhajo-Re-Bhaiya&title=Bhajo-Re-Bhaiya Discover a universe of Bhakti, Sufi, Baul poetry and music at http://www.ajabshahar.org. *** It was a lazy afternoon on the steps of a lake by the Jageri Dhooni where we had paused our caravan of the Rajasthan Kabir Yatra. Vedanth picked up his guitar to sing this curious blues-y evocation of Kabir, and the motley gathering of listeners was charmed. It was – as one of the Yatris put it – Muddy Waters meets Kabir! “My guru, Sri Ramamoorthy Rao, taught me Bhajo Re Bhaiya in Raag Jog-Kauns,” says Vedanth. “One day I was strumming the 12 bar blues on my guitar and suddenly started singing Bhajo Re Bhaiya over that and it seemed to fit like magic! It wasn't the same as what he had taught me, but the seeds were from there, nevertheless. So I sang it to my guru, he took it pretty well, and said, the blues goes well with what Kabir is saying in this song. And that's how Bhajo Re Bhaiya happened!” Vedanth Bharadwaj is an independent composer, singer and guitarist from Chennai. In his music, the rigour of Carnatic, Hindustani and Western classical music all comes together in a charming and powerful blend.

The Rajasthan Kabir Yatra was a travelling festival which toured 7 villages with 13 singers of Bhakti, Sufi and Baul poetry in February 2012. The Yatra was organized by Lokayan in Bikaner (http://www.lokayan.org) in partnership with the Kabir Project, Bangalore.

Thumak Chalat Ramchandra Vedanth Bharadwaj - Vocals & Banjo Shruteendra Katagade - Tabla Himanshu Bajpai - Daastaango Lyrics (Hindi) - ठुमक चलत रामचंद्र बाजत पैजनियाँ किलकि किलकि उठत धाय गिरत भूमि लटपटाय धाय मात गोद लेत दशरथकी रनियाँ अंचल रज अंग झारि विविध भांति सो दुलारि तन मन धन वारि वारि कहत मृदु बचनियाँ विद्रुमसे अरुण अधर बोलत मुख मधुर मधुर सुभग नासि कामें चारु लटकत लटकनियाँ तुलसीदास अति आनंद देखके मुखारविंद रघुवर छबिके समान रघुवर छबि बनियाँ ठुमक चलत रामचंद्र बाजत पैजनियाँ Lyrics (Roman script) - Thumak Chalt Ramchandra, Baajat Paijaniya Kilaki Kilaki utath dhaay girat bhumi latpataaya dhaay maat god let Dasharath ki raniya Anchal raj ang jhaari vividh bhaanti so dulaari tan man dhan vaari vaari kahat mridu bachaniya Vridum se arun aadhar bolat mukh madhur madhur subahag naasika me chaaru latkat latkaniya Tulsidas ati aanand dekh ke mukhaarvind raghuvar chhabi ke samaan raghubar chhabi baniya Thumak Chalat Ramchandra, Baajat Paijaniya Meaning - The anklets on his feet make a tinkling sound as the toddler Rama walks/moves unsteadily Bubbling with laughter, he falls, gets up, runs, stumbles and falls to the ground. Seeing this, the queens of Dashrath, his mothers run and pick him up and hold him on their laps. Using the Pallu of their sarees, they clean the dirt and bruises from his limbs, and comfort and caress him in many ways. Completely surrendering themselves to him with their bodies, minds, and material possessions, they speak soft and sweet words of comfort. With lips that are redder than a coral, his mouth utters extremely sweet words, while a beautiful nose-ring dangles from his nose. The composer, Tulsidas experiences extreme/heightened bliss as he sees/takes in this lotus-like face, and coming up empty for appropriate similes to liken Rama's face to, he declares it incomparable, saying that only Rama’s face can compare to Rama’s face!

Naiharva by Ashwini Pratap Pawar and Vedanth Bharadwaj

On 27th November 2018 Ashwini Pratap Pawar and Vedanth Bharadwaj had a private dance and music recital in a theatre for the performing arts in Kaavadi, near Auroville. This theatre is named "Salangai" which means ghungroos or anklets in Tamil. Vedanth sang soulful Kabir songs which left the audience inspired and moved. Ashwini danced a repertoire of rhythmic Bharatanatyam compositions, adding joy to the delightful evening. That very morning, Ashwini and Vedanth, decided to collaborate in spontaneity. Sharing with all of you a small video clip of their collaboration to a song by Kabir, "Naiharva humka na bhaave" sung in a tune made popular by the legendary Pt. Kumar Gandharva. Filmed on the iPhone by Kaarthikeyan Kirubhakaran. Lyrics and meaning - नैहरवा हम का न भावे Naiharva humka na bhaave I have no joy in my parents' home anymore My old home, my girlhood home... साई कि नगरी परम अति सुन्दर, Saaee ki nagari param ati sundar The beloved's city is of breathtaking beauty जहाँ कोई जाए ना आवे Jahan koi jaaye na aaye Where no one enters, nor leaves चाँद सुरज जहाँ, पवन न पानी, Chaand suraj jahaan, pavan na paani No sun, no moon, no wind, no water कौ संदेस पहुँचावै ko sandes pahunchaave Who can take my message there? दरद यह साई को सुनावै Darad yah saaee ko sunaave Who will tell him of my pain आगे चालौ पंथ नहीं सूझे, Aage chalo panth nahi soojhe I can't find the way ahead पीछे दोष लगावै Peeche dosh lagaave To return to old ways would be folly केहि बिधि ससुरे जाऊँ मोरी सजनी, Kehi bidhi sasure jaaun mori sajni How can I reach the beloved's house, oh friend? बिरहा जोर जरावे biraha jor jaraave The fever of longing burns me विषै रस नाच नचावे Vishay ras naach nachaave Sensual delights make me dance to their tune बिन सतगुरु आपनों नहिं कोई, Bin satguru aapno nahi koi Who can you call your own except the true Guru जो यह राह बतावे Jo yeh raah bataave Who else can show the way? कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, Kahat Kabira suno bhaai saadho Kabir says, listen seekers सपने में प्रीतम आवे Supane na pritam aave The beloved doesn't come in a dream तपन यह जिया की बुझावे Tapan yeh jiya ki bujhaave To douse the heart's flames www.vedanth.in www.kaavadiproductions.com www.hisfathersvoice.film

They also released a single called Hey Schoolgirl under the name Tom and Jerry which saw a modicum of success, but after the poor reception of their debut Simon and Garfunkel album Wednesday Morning 3 am, the duo disbanded, only to reunite year later when a remix of the track The Sound of Silence achieved chart success. Plagued by personal issues and artistic differences, the duo finally parted ways four albums later in 1970, with 10 Grammy Awards to their credit. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990. Ananth Menon is a guitarist and singer from Bangalore. He was part of the popular rock band Galeej Gurus and currently performs in the acoustic trio By2 Blues. Vedanth Bharadwaj is a singer, songwriter, and music producer from Chennai. He runs a recording studio there called SaMa Studios. The two first met in boarding school, and shared a mutual interest in the harmonies and guitar, and consequently also shared a common obsession with Simon and Garfunkel’s work. They reunite again 20 years later to reprise their S&G repertoire. Their set will comprise of some chart topping favourites and some lesser known tracks that were released by the legendary duo. Lyrics - Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone 'Neath the halo of a street lamp I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence "Fools, " said I, "You do not know Silence, like a cancer, grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you" But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the wells, of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls" And whispered in the sounds of silence
