Bhaavavemba Hoovu Arali

Presenting one of my favorite songs in Hindola ragam from the classic movie in Kannada, Upaasane. The song is all about the power and presence of music everywhere in the universe. Hope you will enjoy my humble attempt.

Lyrics:

bhaava vemba hoovu araLi
gaana vemba gandha chelli
raaga vemba jEnu honalu
tumbi hariyali
jagavaa kuNisi taNisali
bhava vemba hoovu araLi
gaana vemba gandha chelli

da ga ma da gaa maa da
sa ma da ni saa daa ni

gaanake naliyeda manasE illa
gaanake maNiyeda jeevave illa
gaanake oliyeda dEvare illa
gaanave tumbide ee jagavella
bhava vemba hoovu araLi
gaana vemba gandha chelli

daasaru hariyaa smaraNaya maaDi
darushana paDedaru anu dina paaDi
sharaNaru haranaa neneyuta bEDi..
shivanaa kanDaru vachanava haaDi
bhava vemba hoovu araLi
gaana vemba gandha chelli

vishwave araLitu omkaaradali
vaaNiya veeNaya jhEnkaaradali
kuNiyitu naaradanu gaanadalli
taNiyitu Krishnanan muraLiyali
bhava vemba hoovu araLi
gaana vemba gandha chelli
raaga vemba jEne honalu
tumbi hariyali jagavaa kuNisi taNisali....

Beautiful song, and good translation. In fact, English cannot fully make justice for the feelings that are there in Kannada language. However, kudos for the effort made.
I am collecting spiritual kannada songs for my own purpose, and I have copied this lyrics. Thanks for the effort.

Great song! The fact that all cultures have some sort of music proves that "gaanake naliyeda manasE illa"! I miss Puttanna Kanagal :(
