Sagarey Adhira Nila Taranga (Cover)

Here's one more Odia song. This was originally sung by the inimitable Sikander Alam. I believe this song was released in a non-filmy album, but I am not completely sure. I don't know who the lyricist and composer of the song, so am not being able to provide that information. If you know, please share that information in the comments.

For the non-Odia folks, here's my rough translation of the lyrics of the song:

The Ocean's blue waves are impatient.
The clouds of have colored the sky like the dark kajal.

A dusky beautiful girl covered with dirty soil
Is flooding my body with intense emotions
The love of the rain has finally found its companion.

The cold breeze is bringing in the fragrance of the flowers
The sound of the wind is making charming sounds
Oh, what a luxury it is to witness the raindrops falling and playing jalataranga!

Kajal: It is a dark cosmetic used as an eye-liner by women in the Indian subcontinent.
Jaltaranga: It is a melodic percussion instrument that uses different levels of water in ceramic cups to tune them to different notes.
