Himachali Music for travelers who plan to visit hills soon !



Imagine yourself driving down the curvy mountain roads. You are travelling along a fern-covered hill overlooking lush tea gardens. You are with your loved ones - your family, your friends, people with whom you can let your hair down and put your feet up. Your are all silent, trying to soak in the serenity of nature. The nature is silent too, with the exception of a birdcall or two. If at a moment like this, your heart cries out for music, give Himachali folk music a chance.   Many of us are aware of the soothing pahadi raag, based on which several popular Bollywood songs have been composed. Some examples are "Aaja re pardesi", "Neela aasman so gaya", "Isharon Isharon mein dil lene waale", and the list is endless. One common trait of these songs is the easy grace, the relaxed pace, and the simple soothing melody. If you have liked these songs, we have the best recommendation for you in terms of music you should play the next time you are out driving in the hills.   Very few people are aware that a surprising percentage of Himachali people are blessed with velvetty, medlodious voices. Though there is hardly any tradition of learning music, the Himachali population is genetically blessed. Today, several young local bands are flourishing all across Himachal Pradesh and the music they are coming up with is the perfect fusion of contemporary and traditional. They sing traditional melodies to the chords of modern instruments. Listening to these songs while driving down the meandering hill roads is a bliss. Don't believe me? Check some of the popular bands and their music out right now. Here are some recommendations.
