Apne Ghar Jayenge – Guitar Cover
Apr 28 2013
I was trying to learn this Ghazal by Late Kashmiri Singer, Vijay Malla today and tried to record a first attempt on my phone (bear with quality) on a lazy Sunday here in Sitla village in Himalayas so you may be able to hear some birds in the background. In a function once, Malla, known as the Ghulam Ali of Kashmir, touched an emotional chord while he sang Ehsan Qamri’s Urdu ghazal “Ham Se Mat Poochhiye Hum Kidhar Jaayenge: Thhak Gaye Hain Bahut, Apne Ghar Jaayenge” (literally meaning: Don’t ask where I shall go; Too tired, I want to go home now), tears rolled down many an eye. My tribute to Vijay Ji’s beautiful voice.
