A Tribute To My Mother On Her Birthday

Posted in Songs, tributes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2010 by vidursury

Here is our blog dedicated to my grandmother

My mother is very dear to me, she is very active and cheerful. Although she has to do most of the housework and also money-paid work, she treats us with so much care and affection. Happy Birthday Mummy! May you live long. Sharing with you some of my mother’s dear movie songs:

First, here is a famous Madam Noor Jehan number from Badi Maa (1945), both my mother’s and my favourite:

Then we move on to a lovely Madam Shanta Apte song in the Tamil film Savithri (1941)

And here is a really melodious song of Madam M. S. Subbulakshmi in Savithri again

A lovely Madam Shamshad Begum – Madam Lata Mangeshkar duet in Deedar (1951)

Madam Zohrabai sings in Rattan (1944):

A great rendition by Madam Amirbai in Kismat (1943)

And ending the tribute with another lovely Noor Jehan song in Zeenat (1945):

Hope you shall live happily for the rest of your life, mummy!

A tribute to Madam Kalyanibai Ji

Posted in Songs, tributes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2010 by vidursury

Among vintage film singers, I don’t think Madam Kalyanibai is so well known as many others, but her voice is a very weighty and sweet one and one of the most powerful voices in Hindi films. Probably her most famous song was “Aahein Na Bhari” with Zohrabai Ambalewali and Noor Jehan in Zeenat (1945), the first female and first famous Qawwali with many debuters.

Her most famous works are from Noor Jehan starring blockbuster Zeenat (1945), under music directors Hafiz Ali Khan and Meer Sahab. In Zeenat she sang with some top female singers of the 40s. Enjoy all these fabulous voices!

1. Aahein Na Bhari with Zohrabai Ambalewali and Noor Jehan. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kalyanibai is one of the women here!

Song number 2 in this link

2. Sakhi Aaya Sawan Aaya with Zohrabai Ambalewali and Amirbai Karnataki

Song number 6 in this link

3. Dulhan Ban Jao with Zohrabai Ambalewali

Song number 8 in this link

4. Sharabi Soch Na Kar with Pankaj Mullick in Mukti (1937)

NOTE THAT THE LADY IN THE DARK-COLOURED SARI IS MADAM KALYANIBAI AS THEN THERE WAS NO PLAYBACK SINGING

5. Hum Mast Dilon Ko Lekar Masti Mein Chali Motor with Shamshad Begum and Hafiz Ali Khan Mastana, picturised on Rehana, Nigar Sultana, Roopkamal and others

6. Balam Main Solah Baras Ki Naar in Parda (1949), picturised on dancers

7. Idhar Dekhte Hain with Amirbai Karnataki and others in Parda (1949), picturised on Rehana and others

Kalyanibai Ji has an immortal voice. I hope this post helps her get present recognition. More songs by the legend shall be uploaded soon.
