Holudia Pakhi - Instrumental Music of a Bangla Folk Song


Instrumental music of a Bangla folk song "Holudia Pakhi Shonari Boron, Pakhiti Charilo ke", that translates to: "Yellow bird with golden complexion, who has set the bird free". Abdul Alim and many other distinguished singers including my mother Dilara Alo recorded this song for Bangladesh Radio, Television and performed at the open concerts.

Here is the Bangla lyrics of this song in English transliteration:

Holudia pakhi shonari boron
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Holudia pakhi shonari boron
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Keun na janilo keu na dekhilo
Kemone pakhi diya je faki
Uira gelo hai chokher poloke
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Pakhi ti charilo ke  re amar
Pakhi ti charilo ke

Shonaro pinjira shunno koria
Kon bone pakhi galo je uria
Pinjirar jora khulia khulia

Pinjirar jora khulia khulia
Bhainga pore shei na pakhiro shokey
Holudia pakhi shonari boron
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Pakhi ti charilo ke amar
Pakhi ti charilo ke

Shobi jodi bhule jabi re pakhi
Keno tobe hai dili re asha
Uira jodi jabi ore o pakhi
Keno baindhachili bukete basha

Kotona modhur gaan shunaiya
Geli re sheshe keno kandaiya
Umaro shoria dukhero doria

Tomari shoria dukhero doria
Utholi uthe hay shojoner chokhe
Pakiti charilo ke
Holudia pakhi shonari boron
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Holudia pakhi shonari boron
Pakhi ti charilo ke
Pakhi ti charilo ke
