The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

mohe bhool na jaana
tum jeete hum haare
o lo ji hum ho gaye tumhaare
tum ho na ho hamaare
o lo ji hum ho gaye tumhaare
