Holi 2021: Jogira Holi Khele Nandlal, Daalenge Rang Daalenge And Others; 7 Holi Songs That  You Probably Aren’t Familiar With
On this day today, on Monday, we celebrate Holi- the festival of colours. As the country celebrates Holi, we all dig out the same old Holi songs like Holi Ke Din Dil Khil Jaate Hain, Holi Aeee Re Aeee Re and Rang Barse every year.  How about trying these disarming Holi songs? Check out seven Holi songs that you probably never heard.

Take a look at the seven songs below:

Jogira Holi Khele Nandlal (Godaan): Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar composed this gem of a  Holi song for this 1963 adaptation of   Munshi Premchand’s Hindi literary classic. This traditional  Holi song contains authentic sounds of celebration harnessed together by Mohammed Rafi’s intoxicating rendering. The chorus line adds to the mood of revellery.


Daalenge Rang Daalenge (Mera Dost): Laxmikant-Pyarelal brought together  Lata Mangeshkar and  Mukesh in this melodious,  unusually subdued  Holi song in this 1969 forgotten soundtrack which has some fabulous songs.


Mal De Gulal Mohe (Kaamchor): No  sa-ra-ra-ra-ra. No Holi haiiiiiii. Just the two voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore  Kumar underlined by a quietly captivating chorus and a melody that favours a muted festivity. A very unusual Holi song composed by Rajesh Roshan.


Kora Man Kori Kaya (Lakshmi):  An absolute patakha of a  Holi song composed by the underrated Usha  Khanna. One of our rare  female music composers,  she infused a new life in the stereotypical  Holi song with some unusual cadences  and funky beats that did not sacrifice the traditional reet (ritual) for a modern heat.  Lataji and Kishore Kumar sang for a spirited Raj Babbar and Reena Roy on screen.


Neela Peela Hara Gulabi Kachha Pukka Rang (Aap Beati):  Dream Girl Hema Malini’s most  popular Holi song is  the one in Sholay. But I much prefer this gorgeous Laxmikant Pyarelal  composition where  Lataji is joined by Mahendra  Kapoor and Manna Dey  . The consequent concoction is as heady as bhang.


Kinun Sang Khelun Holi (non film): A traditional Holi number written by Meera Bai about lamenting instead of  celebrating during Holi. Why does every Holi number have to be about revelry celebration and  embracing love and togetherness?What about those who are not fortunate  enough to be with their loved one on this colourful day? Hridaynath Mangeshkar composes this peerless  song  which his sister Lata Mangeshkar sings  to  supreme  sublimity.


Holi Re Holi Rango Ki Toli (Paraya Dhan): When it comes to unholy thoughts  this Holi this song takes the  cake. This is the sexiest Holi song in Hindi cinema. The beats suggest an eroticism that no other Holi song can even dare to achieve. No surprise that Asha Bhosle sings like a quivering queenbee that she is. But to hear Manna Dey sounding so laden with lust is a shock. This is R D  Burman’s  best Holi song, far superior  to that  awful  Holi ke din in Sholay.
