Meera Bhajan

I felt blissful even while in India when i listened to the audio tape ‘Meera Bhajan’.  It is a divinely rendition of few of Meerabai’s songs by Lata Mangeshkar set to music by her brother Dinanath Mangeshkar.  Being away from India, listening to these songs brings tears. The purity of Lataji’s voice is breathtaking; makes you stop your breath for fear of disturbing the silence that her sound creates.  Dinanathji’s music too is careful and appropriately minimal. A collection of these songs and many others is available on youtube here.  Start with the song ‘Ud Ja Re Kaga’. Simply Blissful.
