The Lohri Song



The Song celebrates the midwinter festival of the Indian subcontinent to mark the winter solstice day (being shortest day and longest night of the year) signifying the return of longer days.

In the evening, with the setting of the sun, huge bonfires are lit in the harvested fields and in the front yards of houses and people gather around the rising flames, circle around (parikrama) the bonfire and throw puffed rice, popcorn and other munchies into the fire, shouting "Aadar aye dilather jaye" (May honor come and poverty vanish!), and enjoy this festival by singing and dancing around the bonfire.

Daler Mehndi re-invents the “Baari Barsi” (12 year sojourn of a beloved who on his return is being questioned as to what made him stay away for so long). The song is full of attitude & a clubhouse mix. The words are penned by the Maverick Mehndi & composed with his USP which enshows a dancer and a non dancer to groove alike. The words are funky clearly showcasing a brave heart, a Punjabi chakde spirit.
