Music of my early youth … S. Hazara Singh … full album, I loved it then, and I still love it now.
Five years later … 1973, I was sixteen meanwhile, and so in love with Asha Puthli, just because of her music.
For those who enjoy crippling depresions
or if your group is dying
I need to share this also, it was my favourite … S. Hazara Singh again
Ah, one more, pls with me
Kishore Kumar – Roop tera mastana
(I’m sorry, it’s cut off near the end )
And one more by Kishore Kumar … I find some similarities to another well-known song, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was.
OK, I found the original of the above song It’s a song by Alexandra, a wonderful German singer who sadly died much to young, in a car accident … this song is from 1967, here in a live version from 1968, the year when I had to return to Germany. (Oops, too chatty again )
Sagi Musume - 鷺娘 - The Heron Maiden - Kabuki nagauta - 1762
Onnagata (female-gender role specialist): BANDŌ Tomasaburō V
English Commentary: Paul Griffith
In the middle of Winter at a frozen pond the spirit of the heron appears, solitary and silent. Transforming into a young maiden in love, the dancer expresses the joy of love. Her love is a short one and the dance moves into sadness and jealousy. The mood darkens and the the spirit of the heron returns. She dances frantically, depicting the torments of hell and pleading for pity. As she collapses, the dance ends. (see * for more)
