Swarathma with Shubha Mudgal at Chamarajendra Govt. College of Visual Arts (CAVA), Mysore 

09. Duur Kinara (feat. Shubha Mudgal)


This song is about the land you come from, the stories of which waft in its breeze and can be heard in the laughter of your friends. A lament for being away from dear ones, woven in torn fragments of dreams - this song fuses languages (Hindi, Kannada and English) and blends Shubhaji's haunting voice with Vasu's earthy intonations to render this tale. 

Lyrics (with Translation)

woh gaye baalam

woh gaye nadiyan paar

aap toh paar utar gaye

hum toh rahen majhdhaar


(fragile memories

snatches of sound

faded photographs

feelings unbound

birds flying in a V

homeward bound)


doorada oorina katheya

keLide nanna hrudaya

ee nadiyalli, gaaLiyali

(My heart has heard the tales of that faraway land
The tales that waft in the breeze, and flow in the rivers)


taayiya madilalli

geLeyara nageyalli

naa kandenu katheyannu

(In my mother's lap, I've heard these tales
In the laughter of my friends, I've seen these tales) gehri nadiyaa

naiyya jhanjhari, duur kinara

us paar saajan humaara

re gehri nadiyaa


(fading photographs

snatches of sound

fragile memories

feelings unbound)


kanasolagina kanasali naa kande aa ooranu indu

(In a dream within a dream I've seen that faraway land)
