Piya Piya Piya….

Asha ji has always been my favorite singer and an inspiration. And when it is a song sung by her with my other favorite singer "humare mazake kishoreda" as she fondly referred to him, it is magic! :) To add to it, this composition is by the great O P Nayyar sahab!
In Piya Piya Piya, Asha & Kishore with their inimitable style have shown how endearing and romantic a song can be with minimal music/orchestration. Kishore made yodelling popular in the Indian film music industry and was the only singer who could those days. He apparently learnt the art listening to an Austrian singer. I love the yodelling in this song and Soumitra has done a fabulous job with it. The whole song is picturised on a moving horse cart (tonga) and the horse trotting beats continue throughout the entire song. This was popularly used by O P Nayyar in many of his compositions.
Here is our attempt of this beautiful, light hearted, happy tune and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed singing it! Thank you so much for listening! :)
