Most of the youth now or we say the present generation is shifting towards the Pop, Rock and Beat music but there is no soul in that kind of music. However, for fun and dance, Pop and rock kind of music is a necessity and yes the fact is that the music has evolved with the time but the music that gives a relief to your soul is definitely not Pop and Rock.
Only classical music has the tendency to make the listeners feel the lyrics, music and give the goosebumps. And that is the reason why classical music is now retaining its importance and value among a section of people who are now looking for the real music. And that is the reason why even now music directors are composing this kind of music. Classical music is the kind of music which will make you feel the soul and also can make one cry.
However, the current generation except a few might not know about Farida Khanum unless he is not a Pakistani. Farida Khanum is a Pakistani Classical Singer who has given many beautiful songs in even India music industry. One of them is “Aaj Jaane ki Zidd Na Karo”. Many of you might have heard of the song but a few would have listened to the song. This Song was till now only available in the female voices of either Farida Khanum or Asha Bhosle.
Here is the Video of ‘Aaj Jaane Ki Zid Na Karo’ in voice of Farida Khanum at the Coke Studio:
But thankfully, now we have this song in a male voice and that too in the soulful voice of Arijit Singh. Arijit has lent his voice to another version of the song for an upcoming TV show called ‘Naamkarann’. He was roped in by Mahesh Bhatt for this song and we can’t thank him enough for it as Arijit has spelt magic with his soulful voice in this version of the song.
We couldn’t have imagined this song as amazingly sung by anyone as the one by Farida Ji. But Arijit proved us wrong and this male version is equally brilliant as the original one.
