'Tokari' - Papon & Sugandha Garg, Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2

  • This is a folk song from Assam.

    Tokari is a form of traditional folk music in Assam, which also originates from the Assamese instrument dukari.

    Papon has added a lot of electronic elements to the song.

    This form of folk music is slowly dying out in Assam & this is Papon's attempt to give it some focus and bring it back to life.nnCredits:nnComposer: Traditional compositionnProduced & Recreated by: PaponnLanguage: AssamesenLyrics: TraditionalnVocals: Papon & Sugandha GargnTokari: PaponnDrums: Tanmay Ray ChaudharynBass: Deepak SaikianGuitar: Kalyan BaruahnNegera: Kirti Prabhar DasnKhol: Probin SaikianBhoor Taal: Manab KalitannRecorded by: Steve Fitzmaurice, Ashish Manchanda, assisted by Thorsten MullernMixed & Mastered by Ashish Manchanda at Flying Carpet Productions, MumbainnSong synopsis: nSyaamä raai koliaanOhe binändiaanOhe binändiaanBoraang säraainKunbonè saarila dhenu hè härinKädäm tälè kaanaai muruli bäjaainKädäm tälè kaanaai muruli bäjaainnJomunaar baalitè syaamärai kolianKrisnaai baahiñ bäjaai ohe binändianJomunaar baalitè syaamärai kolianKrisnaai baahiñ bäjaai ohe binändianmaathaarè mukoli suli hae härinKädäm tälè kaanaai muruli bäjaainKädäm tälè kaanaai muruli bäjaainnO syaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi tälènSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinJomunaar baalitè kädämbär tälätènJomunaar baalitè kädämbär tälätènMeraai meraai baandhibä tukènSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinnBrindaabänär maajè kaanunO syaam kolianGou dhenu säraai probhunO syaam kolianBrindaabänär maajè kaanunO syaam kolianGou dhenu säraai probhunO syaam kolianOoooonBänxi raawè gopi monok bhulaai hènO syaam käliaa kot aaji pälaabi toi"nnJomunaar baalitè kädämbär tälätènKädäm tälè kaanaai muruli bäjaainMeraai meraai baandhibä tukènSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinnSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinnSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinSyaam kolia kot aaji pälaabi toinnContext- nnThis is a  form of Folk singing from Assam called "Tokai" as it's played with a single stringed instrument of the same name.

    This particular song describes thenplayful and often mischievous antics of a young Lord Krishna and his troubled mother. nnThe Song-nn Lord Krishna's would merrily get away with mischief and his disregards towards the chores given by his mother. nnKrishna is loitering around in the forest and playing his flute, tapping the beat with his feet...but he's supposed to look after his cattle ? He plays his mesmerizingnflute by the banks of the Yamuna River, blissful under the shade of a tree! The Gopis (his female companions) warn him...Wait  Krishna your mother is coming tonget you....

    where will you run today? But  they say  "your flute mesmerizes us and makes us  forget everything...but your mother will still come and catch you andntie you up to the same tree as punishment...

    cause you have forsaken your duty towards your herd!!" nnWhere will you run today O Krishna!!nnDownload this song NOW!nwww.itunes.com/cokestudio
