Aao Balma - A.R Rahman, Padmabhushan Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan Coke Studio

This composition by AR Rahman is ‘legendary’ in more than one way the composition is a masterclass in fusing the traditional power of Hindustani classical vocals, with Carnatic scales few have mastered. For this, it brings together the beautiful voice of Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan, accompanied by his sons and grandson; with the guitar genius of Prasanna trading blows with Sivamani’s explosive percussion. This one will literally blow you away!

Lyrics of Aao Balma with meaning: 

Barsan laage nain hamar (tears pour from my eyes)
angarey hain thandi phuhaar, (even the cold shower feels like embers)
sooney hain merey aangan dwaar, (my doorway lies empty)
tum bin suna hai sansaar, (my life's desolate without you)

Aaisi yaad tumhari aa-e, (I long for you so much)
bekal manwa chain na paa-e, (my mind is never at peace)
chah-e-kaaley badarwa chah-e (and even if the sky clouds over)
kaun merey man ko samjha-e (who is there to console my heart?)
aabhi jao na satao (go, don't trouble me, now)

bandish lyrics and composition: ustad ghulam mustafa khan.

Sthai:
Aa-o aa-o aa-o balma (come my love/my beloved)
daras bin mora jiya ghabrawe (my heart becomes restless without the sight of you)

Antra:
Din bitaa bha-e-saanjh (the day passes and turns to dusk, I find it tougher to be at peace)
howan laagi ren nahi chain (even this soothing brings me no solace)

piya inayat jaun topey waari (my beloved, I shower my love on you)
