#MusicLog #9: #PunjabiSongs – The beauty of Punjab in the voice of Asa Singh Mastana

Asa Singh Mastana’s voice is truly fabulous voice, listening to his silken voice, one gets immediately transported into the lush yellow & green fields of mustard in Punjab the land of beauty and bravery…

Asa Singh Mastana  (1926–1999) was a traditional Punjabi musician and singer. Some of his well-known songs are  Jadon Meri Arthi and Kali teri gut, have served as templates for later Punjabi musicians. He was mostly paired with the famous female Punjabi singers of those golden days, Surinder Kaur & Prakash Kaur and together they have magically sung many old folk songs of Punjab.

Here’s a list of some of Asa Singh Mastana’s Punjabi songs. Some of these songs written by Sufi poets of Punjab like Bulleh Shah, Shah Hussain, Sultan Bahu, and Khwaja Ghulam Farid while others are based on folk lyrics. Have uploaded some of his songs on Box.net, link available on the mail page of this blog.

Kali Teri Gutt

Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
roop deeye raniye paraande nu sambhaal ni,
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
hoooooooooo,
Kanna vich bunde tere roop de shingar ni,
mithe tere bol moohon bol ik vaar ni,
pailan paandi e ni teri moran jehi chaal ni,
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
hoooooooooo,
chann jehe mukhde te gitth gitth laaliyan,
mehkdi jawaani jiven chambe diyan daaliyan,
jhalli nayeeyon jaandi tere roop vaali chaal ni,
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
hoooooooooo,
dhiye ni punjab deeye giddheyan di raani tu,
kheta deee bahaar ate chownke dee swani tu,
pyar dee pujarne pyaraan da sawaal ni,
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
roop deeye raniye paraande nu sambhaal ni,
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni
Kali teri gutt te paranda tera laal ni



Jadon Merii Arathii

jadon merii arathii uThaa ke chala.N ge 

mere yaar sab huM humaa ke chala.N ge 

chalan ge mere naal dushaman vii mere 

eh vakharii e gal muskara ke chala.N ge 

rahiaan tan te liiraan mere zindagi bhar 

maran baad menu sajaa ke chalan ge 

jinna de main pairaan vich ruldaa rahaa haan 

oh hathaan te mainu uthaa ke chalan ge

tere dar te sajadaa sajaa ke chalan ge 

bithaayaa jinnan nuu main palakaan di chaanve 

oh baladii hoii aga te bithaa ke chalan ge
