‘Dil Diyan Gallan’ is one of those songs that has touched our hearts – so much so, that the beautiful melody still has us swaying to its absolutely beautiful lyrics. Vishal and Shekhar’s heartfelt music, Atif Aslam’s drugging vocals and of course, Irshad Kamil’s soulful lyrics – the song was way too much for us to let go of it anytime soon. And, just when we thought this was it, singer Satvik Balram came out with his cover of the song along with Rabbi Shergill’s ‘Tere Bin’ and ‘Bulla Ki Jaana’, and we found ourselves listening to the song on loop over and over again. But well, this time around, it is Satvik’s version of the songs that we’re listening to.
Here’s Satvik’s version of Channa Mereya:
So, who is Satvik? Well, he is a musician based out of Singapore who has been recording absolutely amazing covers and mash-ups of some of the best and most popular contemporary songs. I am sure you have all heard his cover of ‘Channa Mereya’ and yes,’Kabira’ too.
And, here we go again. Satvik’s here with another surprise:
Here’s the Dil Diyan Gallan cover:
To be honest, the songs that we listen to on the silver screen and the artists and singers who work so hard to make them are absolutely brilliant craftsmen who are experts in their own fields. However, that doesn’t really mean that there’s no talent outside the four walls of those magnificent studios. Believe me, when I say it, you can find amazing singers and musicians right on the streets, working in places that are far from the music industry.
