Rock and hip-hop rapper Santhanam Srinivasan Iyer, popularly known as EPR, is known for his out-of-the-box presentation of otherwise known tracks. Be it Ekla cholo re or Urvasi, EPR surely knows how to rock the charts! And his recent take on the popular Bhatiali number Amay bhashaili re is no different. The original number is one of the popular river songs that have been passed down generations in both West Bengal and Bangladesh. The EPR-GJ Storm version is a humble tribute to the legendary folk number, and has been aptly blended with hip-hop, lo-fi, and trap to give it a Gen Z twist. Performed by EPR and Trisha Coelho, the serene picturisation is magic to the eyes. The lyrics that depict EPR’s ease in Urdu, brilliantly fuse with the core essence of the original number and speak of the nuances of human emotions.
‘Tu hi meri manzil, tu hi meri urdu, mera sanskrit... amay dubaili re, amay bhashaili re, okul doriyay bujhi kul nai re’... when a song gives you such lyrics, love just happens.
