Watch the whole video and read up on the inspiration, the lyrics and the people behind this song!

The idea was to do a world music song, rooted in Assamese culture and music. This song is an ode to man’s fearless spirit, perfectly captured through the poetic metaphor of a spunky kite in the open sky. It also showcases the free spirit, which refuses to settle and knows not any boundaries. The song also ultimately refers to the soul being freed. The song is an interplay between Mahalaxmi Iyer and Dominique Cerejo with Assamese folk singers Banjyotsna Borgohain & Sharodi Borah providing perfect context to the setting.

Here's the lyrics of this song:

 

Siloni aai mur aagote pore,
aagoli kolapate lori sori baatori diye,
pokhiti ure, uribo khuje,
pokhiti uri uri uri uri deuka meli nilima sume

 

Mann patang mann patang udney chalaa,

Doriyon mein baandhne woh aasmaan,

Mann patang mann patang udney chalaa,

Naachtaa nidar sambhaale nannhi si jaan,

Kaagazi hai, parwaaz bhi hai, yeh roke se ruktaa kahan,

Laazmi hai awaaragi hai, kisiki ye paglaa hai suntaa kahan,

 

Mann malang mann malang mann ka bhalaa,

Ho duaa salaam toh hai miltaa wahaan,

Mann malang mann malang mann ka bhalaa,

Rabb ka saath miltaa ye rehtaa jahaan,

Paas bhi hai, talaash bhi hai, yeh dhoonde se milta kahan,

Raag bhi hai bairaag bhi hai, kahin bhi kisi mein ye dhaltaa kahan

 

Sau rang bhar ke hai udtaa, na kisi ka dar, chinta fikar, mann kahan kartaa ,

Baadal ki seedhi hai chadhtaa, sab toh idhar, iskaa hai ghar, isko hai dar kya ,

Sab toh yahan solaa aanaa kyun gareebi ka ronaa hai yun bewajaah,

Ho Dil balaa ya bhalaa hai, ye kya hai

Traasdi hai mazaak bhi hai, museebat hai hal banke miltaa kahaan

 

Siloni aai mur aagote pore,
aagoli kolapate lori sori baatori diye,
pokhiti ure, uribo khuje,
pokhiti uri uri uri uri deuka meli nilima sume

 

Mann patang mann patang udney chalaa,

Doriyon mein baandhne woh aasmaan,

Mann malang mann malang mann ka bhalaa,

Rabb ka saath miltaa ye rehtaa jahaan,

Kaagazi hai, parwaaz bhi hai, yeh roke se ruktaa kahan,

Raag bhi hai bairaag bhi hai, kahin bhi kisi mein ye dhaltaa kahan

 

Kyaa jaane kis se hai ladtaa, kabhi jaadugar, kabhi rahbar dil banaa firtaa

Khud raah apni hai chuntaa, dil ka safar, dil ke nagar, dil kiya kartaa,

Kisko yahan aazmaana kya hai khona kya paana, hai yun bewajah,

Dil khulaa toh mili main, mujhi mein,

Aap beeti toh baat seekhi ke bus mein kisi ke ye rehtaa kahan

 

Siloni aai mur aagote pore,
aagoli kolapate lori sori baatori diye,
pokhiti ure, uribo khuje,
pokhiti uri uri uri uri deuka meli nilima sume

Siloni aai mur aagote pore,
aagoli kolapate lori sori baatori diye,
pokhiti ure, uribo khuje,
pokhiti uri uri uri uri deuka meli nilima sume
