Krishna Nee Begane Baro - Remix

While I was working on my previous post, I had already started work on this one as well. It took me a little longer to finish it than I had originally planned. Krishna Nee Begane Baro is one of my all time favorite songs. The entire song is a description or "varnane (in Kannada)" of the beautiful & naughty kid Lord Krishna. The imagination and "varnane" of Krishna's beauty by the lyricist Vyasa Tirtha is just awesome. The lyrics is so genuine and fresh, such that, whenever I sing this, I always end up imagining the Lord in all his glory is standing in front of me. Music is conceived and composed by myself using loops in my Mixcraft soundboard software. Its possible strings / bass notes in some places may not be in sync, please remember its a novice attempt, using available loops.

The song was originally composed in raga Yaman Kalyani (like Pibare Rama Rasam). I took that base ingredients and created a fusion of sorts, and of-course added some of my own imagination to show how this little boy Krishna is not only dear to his mom but is our "Loka Rakshaka", wherein we chant his name every day during our morning, afternoon and evening prayers ("Sandhya Vandhanam") seeking his guidance and blessings.

Anyway, go ahead and enjoy my presentation and please leave your constructive comments.
