Capturing the essence of street music across the world, and filmed at the landmark locations of the world, Maati Baani wanted to celebrate the architectural diversities of different countries in which the artistes are from! It is the diverse architecture that gives each city its identity and character, isn't it?
Jao Piya Re
Teri meethi batiya mein,
Bholi se suratiya mein,
Sudh boodh bisraun..
Ta na na na na dere na na dere na na tana na na na na tadiyana tum, tanaderna tanadere tana derena tana deem,
tana dere tana na num-2
Ta na na tadiya na deem tum -3
Tan dere na -3
Jab se chhodi tori nagariyaa,
Jaagi mein saghari raina raina
Ghir ghir aai kaari badariya, aise mein ghir aaye naina,
Tune jo nazar daali,
Rang di chunar saari,
Jhoom jhoom itraun!
Translation in English:
My darling, This time I will not come under the spell of your sweet words and innocent looks!
Since the time I am away from you, I have spent sleepless nights,
The clouds have gathered in the sky and also in my eyes..
The moment you look at me, my 'chunar' gets colored by Love!
And I dance in pride and joy!
