Shamur – Let The Music Play, the party anthem of all times is that one song which has received undivided love from everyone. It clearly has something for everybody – from folk sayings to dance beats, from subtle life lessons to that epic raw voice singing the Punjabi lyrics in the song.
The song starts with the dance beats and gels up with its Punjabi lyrics: ‘O na kar maan rupaiye wala bar bar ke na rajje, Bai na kar maan rupaiye wala bar bar ke na rajje‘ which translates to ‘Do not be so arrogant about your riches and money, for the thirst for more will never be satisfied‘.
The hook of the song ‘Dil La Leya Be Parwah De Naal‘ is relatable to everyone who has fallen in love. These lines are so beautifully sung that they pierce the heart full of memories. This explains life’s biggest woes so clearly and also how others’ life experiences can be the greatest learning in our life. The song brings out the vividness and richness of the Punjabi folk.
Who Is The Raw Punjabi Voice In The Shamur Song?
In awe of this song, I googled the name of the legend who sang the Punjabi lyrics in the song and the results were unanticipated. There is not even a mention of his name anywhere in the credits. Any google search for Shamur Let The Play song, lyrics, video, etc shows only the Band’s name as well as details about the Female Lead singer.
Shamur’s Wikipedia page tells the following about them:
Shamur is a music group formed by Italian producers, Emanuele Marascia and Alessandro Murru. The male singer comes from Punjab, India, while the female voice belongs to a Sardinian woman, Teresa Solinas, best known as Terry. Shamur obtained success in Greece in summer 2005, when they reached the top position on the music charts.
But what about the legend from Punjab, India? Not even a name or mention about him. Very unfortunate to have done this with the heart and soul of the song. It is as shocking as absurd to find no mention of the Punjabi singer over the web or anywhere. We want to know the artist behind the gifted voice who has remained unnamed for reasons unknown.
No doubt, the song ‘Let The Music Play’ is the band’s combined effort and it couldn’t have been done better. Having said that, I request Shamur the band to uncover the singer behind this marvel. We deserve to be illuminated on this.
