#TBT – Ehna akhiyan ch pavan kiven kajla ve by Surinder Kaur

This week for Throwback Thursday we are going right back to the golden days of Punjabi folk with Surinder Kaur. She was also known as “The Koyal (Nightingale) of Punjab” in her career spanning over nearly six decades! Surinder Kaur achieved more than many of the female artists of today recording over 2000 songs. She sung many Punjabi folk classics written by famous poets and Sufi Kafis of Baba Bulleh Shah, most of them recorded for the first time immortalising this genre of Punjabi folk classics for generations to come.

Surinder Kaur was famous for singing together with her sister Prakash Kaur, and later her daughter Dolly Kaur continued the tradition of singing these Punjabi folk classics.

We bring you the classic “Ehna akhiyan ch pavan kiven kajla ve” The lyrics, composition and of course her beautiful voice capture this era perfectly of pure punjabi love.
