Chhaap Tilak

Here’s our version of this famous Sufi poem, sung by me and produced by my bro Aditya. This was written by the great Sufi Saint and artist – Amir Khusro. The poet here is charmed by his spiritual master, Hazrat Nizamuddin, and sings this poem in his praise.

In this rendition we’ve tried a fusion of sounds from the Middle-east as well as India backed by both Indian and Pop/Hip-hop beats.

This track also caught the attention of a Hollywood based media firm last year and has found it’s place in their international-music libraries now. The deal came as a pleasant surprise for us 🙂

Lyrics by: Amir Khusro (Traditional Sufi song)

Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay
Prem bhatee ka madhva pilaikay
Matvali kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Gori gori baiyyan, hari hari churiyan
Baiyyan pakad dhar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Bal bal jaaun maen toray rang rajwa
Apni see kar leeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Khusro Nijaam kay bal bal jaiye
Mohay Suhaagan keeni ray mosay naina milaikay

Chhap tilak sab cheeni ray mosay naina milaikay
English Translation of the lyrics:

You’ve taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance.
By making me drink the wine of love-potion,
You’ve intoxicated me by just a glance;
My fair, delicate wrists with green bangles in them,
Have been held tightly by you with just a glance.
I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer,
You’ve dyed me in yourself, by just a glance.
I give my whole life to you Oh, Nijam,
You’ve made me your bride, by just a glance.
