Navratri Special: From Nagada Sang Dhol to Chogada, look at some hit tracks on Navratri that easily boost your energy for Garba and Dandiya Nights.
Yes! We know we are a little late. But better late than never. Our Indian cinema is known for making great dance numbers that go to the international level. From Humma Humma to Naatu Naatu, there are a number of songs without which any function, occasion, or party is incomplete. Likewise, our festive season is also incomplete without the songs made in the film industry.
The Navratri celebration is in full swing, and this festival of dance, joy, colourful clothes, and happiness is incomplete without the Garba and Dandiya songs. By remembering all the aspects of Navratri, look at the songs that boost your energy in these festive days of Navratri.
Shubhaarambh (Kai Po Che!)
What can be a better song than Shubhaarambh to start your Garba-Dandiya Night? Shubhaarambh is a song that shows the excitement and beauty of new beginnings. This song has both Gujarati and Hindi lyrics, which makes it even more interesting. While listening to this song, you did not need to be present physically on the grounds of dance nights. You start doing Garba within you as you hear this song.
The combination of beats from Western and traditional music sung by Divya Kumar and Shruti Pathak makes it perfect for commencing your Garba-Dandiya Night.
Nagada Sang Dhol (Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela)
A song that is filled with energy and the vibrant essence of choreography is ‘Nagada Sang Dhol’. Nagada Sang Dhol, featuring Deepika Padukone, also mentioned that this song was one of the most difficult songs she had ever done in her career. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is not only known for his huge set and epic love stories but also for the way she made and choreographed songs in his movies.
This song becomes more special because of these two things. One is because of Deepika’s toughest dance moves, and the other is because of Shreya Ghosal and Osman Mir’s high-powered vocals.
Chogada (Love Yatri)
Love Yatri is not known for the film but more because of its songs. Love Yatri was the debut film of Salman Khan’s Brother-In-Law Aayush Sharma, but this movie was more in the news because of its album. Chogada is another song on this list, sung by Darshan Raval and Asees Kaur and choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.
Chogada was one of the chartbuster songs of 2018, which can still be heard in the festive season. This was originally a Gujarati folk song that was dedicated to Lord Krishna and it referred to his turban.
Dholida (Gangubai Kathiawadi)
Dholida is a fresh entry in the list of Garba-Dandiya songs. This song is also from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, featuring Alia Bhatt in the lead role. Alia Bhatt was not only praised for her acting in the film but also for her moves, which she shows in ‘Dholida’.
In the whole song, you can see Bhatt’s determination and efforts to make her space in the world of SLB, especially in the part of his song. Other than Dholida, Jhume Re Gori is another song that can be played in the Garba Nights.
Udi Udi Jaaye (Raees)
Udi Udi Jaaye, featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan, is the perfect song for couples during the festive time of Navratri. From its beats to the chemistry of the lead pairs, this song is everything that a dance song should have.
Udi Udi Jaaye was penned by lyricist Javed Akhtar and sung by Sukhwinder Singh, Bhoomi Trivedi, and Karsan Sagathia. This is a song that surely amplifies the spirit of Garba.
