Ladies Sangeet and Mehndi Night Singer with Dholki
Our Female Dholki Players and Singers are perfect for a Ladies Sangeet or a Mehndi Night. They sing traditional boliyan whilst playing the dholki. The dholki is a small drum, similiar to a dhol, creating a similar sound.
They create a fun atmosphere, where your guests can also join in with the singing.
Sangeet ceremony as the name suggests is all about dance and music. It is one of the most enjoyable ceremonies before the wedding and is exclusively for women. This is the night the ladies can really let their hair down before the stress of the wedding.
Sangeet ceremony is held few days before mehndi ceremony and comes as a time for joy and merriment amidst the hectic hustling bustling activities before marriage.
Traditional the family of the bride invites female relatives and associates for Ladies sangeet, wherein all of them sing folk songs dedicated to marriage and bride. It is accompanied by Dholak and spoon, for the tune and beat.
Amidst celebration, ladies, crack jokes, tease the bride, merrily reminisce their youthful days and bless the girl for a prosperous married life. The environment quite often becomes emotional as the bride and her mother experience the pangs of separation from each other. After all the dance and singing is done. Women enjoy themselves to the fullest.
These days the grooms family will also host a ladies sangeet prior to the wedding, where traditional boliyan relating to the grooms side are sang.
Ladies Sangeet is a vital part of traditional pre-wedding celebrations in Indian and Pakistani culture. Traditional songs are sung to stir the emotions (joy, sadness and laughter) of the participating families and friends. Nowadays it is common for the grooms family as well as the brides family to enjoy these evenings. Indeed it is also now common for men and boys to be invited on such occasions, although the singing is still generally left to the ladies and girls. Our world class singer will perform traditional Punjabi folk songs as well as some Ghazals, Qawali and Hindi songs if requested. All that we request is that you sing, clap and dance along whenever the mood takes you. If any friends or family members also wish to take the microphone and sing there favorite songs it will make the evening even more memorable. We can provide the microphones and sound system as well as Tabla and Dholki players.
Some of the songs we perform include the following (please note that many of the Punjabi folk songs below were sung before partition and are equally relevant to Pakistani and Indian clients).
Meri rangli madhaani bahva goria
Matthe te chamkan wal mere banre de
Ni aj koi jogi aave
Aaya larriye ni tera sihriya vala viahvan aaya
Apne chubare te main khedan geetiya
Kut kut bajra main kothey uttey pauni aan
Chitta Kukkar banere te,kashni dupatte valie
Mele chaliyan te lai ke aavi choodian
Kehnde ne naina tere kol rehna
Sanu nehar vale pul te bula ke
Sada chiryaan da chamba ve
Sooye ve cheere waliya main kehni aan
Madhanian hai o mere dhadhia rabba
Mehndi ni mehndi
Aj di dihari rakh
Batti baal ke banere utte rakhni aan
Gori diyan jhanjhran bulaundia gaiya
Eidhar kankan odhar kankan vich kankan de boor pia
Bajre da sitta ve asan tali te maroria
Jind mahi bajh tere kumlai aan
Kurti meri cheent di
Kala shah kala
Ni main kattan pareetan naal charkha chanan da
latthe di chadar
Piche piche aunda
Jutti kasoori pairi na poori
Ambarsare diyan barian va main khaandi na
Dhola dhola ve dhola
Bapu ve ad huni aan
Ni munda aa gia navan patvari
Boohe bariyan te nale kandan tap ke
Tu mera banka laal
Ihna akhiyan ch pavan kive kajla ve
Ni ek meri akhh kashni
Mere haatho main nau nau
Bahut piyar karte hain
Dulhan si saji dharti
Mehndi laga ke rakhna
Jo meri rooh ko
Tumhari mehfil main aa gai hain
Savan ka mahina
Chaudhvi ka chaand ho
Do dil mil rahe hain
Kinna sohna tainu rabb ne banaiya
Nit khair mangan sohnia main teri
Ye daulat bhi le lo
Hoton se chu lo tum
