Sanwal from 'Live At Baroda'

from by Mekaal Hasan Band



About This Track

'Sanwal' was our first 'hit' song which became a crowd favourite ever since we released it way back in 2004 on Mekaal Hasan Band's debut record,'Sampooran'.
It is performed live here with Gino Banks on drums, Sheldon D'Silva on bass, Sharmistha Chatterjee on vocals, Muhammad Ahsan Papu on flute and Mekaal Hasan on guitar.


Lyrics (translated from Urdu and Punjabi)

O my beloved!
Please come to me
Listen! Can’t you hear the wailing of my soul?
I am forlorn, I am torn
My beloved is nowhere to be found
I have no way of going to him
O my beloved,
Please come to me
Can’t you hear me wailing?
Desolate am I
Hanging aimlessly. Neither here nor there
I have lost everything. I have lost it all
O my beloved!
Please come to me
