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! :)

Beautiful rendition of this gem. Brings out the true talent in both of you. Chhoti-chhoti murkhis were done perfectly...well expected from you two.
Liked Soumitra's voice modulation, and his KishoreDa style expressions in this fun song. Yodelling was great too.
Nice work.

Vidyu, Excellent presentation as usual!

I particularly liked Soumitra's singing in this very much:mood/ expressions, naughtiness, and not to forget the yodelling everything sung/conveyed so perfectly!

Magnificent, Vidyu and Soumitra...U both make a good team:)

Vidyu & Soumitra,
Excellent rendition. Really brought that yester year feel. You both sound amazing in this duet and Soum's yodelling was wonderful to create Kishorda magic in this duet. Very well done and suits your voices!
Thanks for sharing.
