A bittersweet contemporary folk number, Jindjaani ventures into the rough yet rewarding terrain of love. Ali Hamza’s signature vocals take the mic alongside Nirmal Roy’s infectiously sweet energy to create a magical duet. Starting off on a note of heartbreak and dismay, a solid, traditional dholak and mandolin steer the song towards some sonic closure as it blends into the classic folk song, Jhanjar Phabdina. Bringing the sounds of the soil to the forefront, Ali Hamza’s reflects deeply on his musical roots to create a soundscape that is fresh and familiar at the same time.
