Mo Priya Tharu Kie Adhika Sundara Lyrics

Just a few days back I talked about the song Mo priya tharu, sung by ace singer the Late Chitta Jena of the melodious voice. Here are the lyrics of the songs "mo priya tharu kiye adhika sundara"

Film - Sindura Bindu 
Singer: Chitta Jena  
Music and Lyrics : Prafulla Kar

Mo Priya tharu kie adhika sundara
Mo Priya tharu kie adhika gunara
Ediki manoi jhia
mana mani thile kahe
Mu eka tumhara (2 times)
Mo priya tharu kiye adhika sundara

Ja mana re hase khali mamatara phula
ja darada jhari pade hoi satagara
Ediki abujha jhia
bujhena se phula gandhe
Mu aji bibhora ( 2 times)
Mo priya tharu kiye adhika sundara

Ja othare lekha mora punya jibanara
Ja luhare jae dhoi papa jete mora
ediki manoi jhia
karena bichara kebe
mo papa punya ra (2 times)

Mo priya tharu kie adhika sundara
Mo priya tharu kie adhika gunara

Ediki manoi jhia mana manithile kahe
Mu eka tumhara (4 times)

Enjoy this beautiful song everyone!

Kamala Desa Raj Kumara - Prafulla Kar, the Legend Turns 80

As usual, 15th and 16th February were days of delightful celebration for Oriya music lovers. Padmashri Prafulla Kar's Birthday is celebrated by the PKF (Prafulla Kar Foundation) on those days at a public venue, with free entry. A galaxy of Oriya superstar singers generally grace the occasion and the evening reverberates with tunes of Old Oriya Songs from decades back.

This year the celebrations were even more special as the legend turned 80 years. This year also marked another change. The absence of veteran Singer Shri Chitta Jena. The singer, who was a long time friend of Prafulla Kar, was a regular attendee at his soirees. It was Chitta Jena's mellifluous voice which made many of Prafulla Kar's compositions jewels of Odia Music.

Whoever can forget "Mo Priya Tharu Kiye Adhika Sundara" from the movie Sindura Bindu? A visibly moved Shri Kar narrated how he had composed the song on a terrace and Chitta Jena had lent his voice.

Music legend Pranab Pattnaik sang a few songs. Hindi singer Sarika Singh lent her jazzy voice to some Oriya tunes like "jhumka tike tu ta halei de"

Here are some memorable photos from the occasion.

The Boat Song - by Chimera and Antara

There is a new generation of Odia singers out there who do not shy away from experimenting. Recently came across a wonderful composition called the "Boat Song" which evokes the mystery and tales of the Boatman. The song has a strong essence of folk and tradition and has a mixture of two languages.

And talking about Boat songs, this one doesn't have the phrase "majhi re" even once in the first stanza! well slips it in at the end though...

"Mate bhaseilure re, mate budeilure, akula nadira tara kula nahi re"

Like the lyrics, the song has a spirit of limitlessness well portrayed by the young team.

The song is produced by Sumantra Mishra, Professor of Architecture at PMCA, Cuttack.

The song is sung by young architecture student Antara Ghosal and Chimera, and features PMCA-ians Mondip Kalita on bass, Rex Walter Sangma on rhythm. Tuhina lip syncs for Antara in the video. The song is a fusion of Oriya, Assamese and Bengali folk music.

Wishing this very young team the very best in their future compositions.
