Song for the Soul : Madari : MTV Coke Studio

Some songs are just for the soul. This is one of them.

This is the first time, I am putting a post about a song in my Blog. Being a forever Coke Studio Fan, I had to do this. It is quite difficult to pick one favorite song when I sit to think of all countless songs in my playlist. But this one is an out of league song.

This song “Madari” is sung by Vishal Dadlani and Sonu Kakkar from MTV Coke Studio Season 2. It gets you more closer to the Almighty, charges you up, gives you goosebumps and explains wonderfully our relationship with the God.

It is a sufi song. On listening you will find that the singer refers God as “Madari” and himself as”Jamoora”. The word “Madari” is a hindi word means the person or master who makes the monkeys obey to their commands while performing street shows. “Jamoora” means the monkey who obeys the master.

Song: Madari
Producers: Coke Studio Lyrics : Manoj Yadav
Singers: Vishal Dadlani and Sonu Kakkar

Here’s the Translation in english:

Madari, Madari, Madari,
Madari mera tu,
Main Jamura re Jamoora,
Jamura re Jamoora…

Master, master, master
you’re my master
I’m an obedient assistant,
an obedient assistant…

Madari, Madari, Madari,
Madari mera tu…
Main Jamura re Jamoora,
Jamura re Jamoora re…

Master, master, master
You’re my master…
I’m an obedient assistant,
an obedient assistant, obedient assistant!

Tera damroo baje, baje damroo,
Man ka mayura,
Man ka mayura,
Jam ke naache…

Your drum beats, the drum beats,
The peacock of my mind, (x2)
dances intensely.

Teri waani ke dam par,
Waani ke dam par!
Jag saara bhaage
Aage paache.

On the strength of your voice/words,
On the strength of your voice/words!
The entire world runs hither tither.

Tu hi dhare muskan ki booti,
Cheetein tu ashuwan ki phoohar.
Tu hi dhare saagar kaa thela,
Tu hi bhare nadiyaan mein dhar.

You are the one who holds the medicine/herbs of smiling (keys to happiness).
You spray a fountain of “ashuwan” (youth?)
You’re the one who takes care of the seas.
You’re the one who gives flow to the rivers.

    This is a Sufi song, written by the 16th century Sufi saint Hazrat Bulle Shah of Punjab. Vishal and Sonu have indeed done thorough justice to it. Simply love this song! Thanks for sharing! :’

        BTW… Ashuwan stands for tears. Sufi is actually a double meaning song. The first version is always a romantic, but it hides a deeper meaning, which is religious.

        In this bhajan, Bulla wonders on the surprising hold of the Lord… It’s he, who provides the herb of smiles and also the shower of tears.

        Heh heh! Actually, I’m a die hard fan of Sufi music. From Wadali Bros to Kailash Kher, I love all. In fact, I’m simply in love with the Sufi concept. An example…

        Khusrow Nizam ke bali bali jaihein.
        Mohe suhagan keenhi, mose naina milay ke.

        It’s by Amir Khusrow. A 16th century poet. First meaning is: A girl is grateful to Nizam that he made him his bride by looking into her eyes.

        The spiritual meaning: Khushrow is indebted to Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya for granting him grace by allowing him to worship him.

        It’s kind of deciphering a code. 😀
