Ajay Vijh - Mouth Organ ( Harmonica )
World Friendship Day is dedicated to the bond of friendship and companionship and is celebrated on the first Sunday of August every year. In India, a small instrument called MOUTH ORGAN has succeeded in creating a new level of friendship amongst its players/lovers. With the aid of new age social networks like YOUTUBE , FACEBOOK, WHATS APP etc the interaction has gradually developed into regular meetings, at regional, state as well as national level. This has now exposed the youngsters too towards the lovely instrument and its players. I feel proud to be a small part of this growing circle of friends and sincerely hope that together we shall succeed in bringing back this as one of the leading acoustic instruments in our country

I seldom try new age songs, in spite of repeated persuasion from my son but got inspired to play this one after listening to a beautiful instrumental on guitar of this very song ( played by Abhishek and Sonali Nath) Also I am a novice in video making, so could not make a proper movie ( my earlier videos were made by my elder son who is in Chennai at present) Played on Super Chromonica in the key of D#

September 28th and 29th will be remembered fondly as golden days in Indian harmonica scenario wherein more than 100 harmonica enthusiasts gathered under one roof to know more about each other, and more importantly to share their knowledge about this wonderful instrument. The event, organised by HARMONICA BROTHERHOOD, NEW DELHI was second such congruence, the first one being in Kolkata previous year. Players from different walks of life, some professional players, but mostly hobbyists assembled and intermingled like a close knit family. Whether it was technical session or performances session, the atmosphere was simply electric. I have tried to recall those precious moments by including some pictures from the gala event in this upload. Harmonica used is SUZUKI SCX-48 in the key of A. I have no copyright on the karaoke track used, its purely for non commercial purpose meant for sharing among friends.

Hi friends, I do not remember exactly, who suggested this song, but when I heard the track for the first time, I knew, I was going to record it. Filmed on the great Saira bano ji, this fast paced music is an example of Shankar Jaikishan's versatility Some of my friends have suggested some very beautiful numbers to be played on harmonica and I shall try my best to fulfill their requests, although it may take some time.

chala jaata hoon.wmv Late Kishore sahab was a genious in many art forms. In playback singing, he introduced the concept of YOODLEYING which involved touching the same note of consecutive octaves. This created a unnique 'masti' effect. I have tried to play one such song, the inspiration of which came from the 'cassette' of great Milon Gupta sahab called "FIREPOWER" The videos and stills have been taken during a family tour of southern India in the end of 2009, inwhich we covered Kodaikanal. Madurai, Rameswaram, Kanyakumari,Kovallam, Ooty, and Mysore

HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL OF A HEART TOUCHING LATA- RAFI DUET, "YE DIL TUM BIN" FROM THE MOVIE "IZZAT" When meaningful words synchronize with heart touching melody and appropriate rhythm, a sort of magic is created which easily sinks into our minds whenever we hear it. With the evergreen voices of Lata ji and Late Rafi sahab, music maestro 'Laxmikant Pyarelal', have successfully rekindled millions of music loving hearts. For me, this was a tough song to record in terms of its changing tabla beats, which my friends told me was'ardh teen taal'. I played this music for some of my most close friends who have always stood by me in my testing periods.

HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL OF "SUN CHAMPA" FROM FILM 'APNA DESH' PLAYED BY A K VIJH Some critics tagged 'Pancham Da' with a label of a composer more inclined towards western beats and music, but time and again he proved it wrong. It is true that he used many western instruments like bass guitar much before his other counterparts but he always managed to 'indianise' them as the situation demanded. He also made use of many 'unusual' instruments too like 'blowing a bottle', 'tapping a glass with spoon' for getting the desired sound in various songs. No doubt, he rose to the heights, where no other composer had been in his times. Feels so sad that he left us so early .... Another important thing, he played harmonica beautifully, he did his part in underlying the importance of this 'tiny wonder' in 'Indian Film Music' whenever he got an opportunity. So for people like us, he was like a GOD of music. This is my humble attempt to play a beautiful dance number composed by him.

HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL OF THE SONG, "CHANDA O CHANDA" FROM THE MOVIE, "LAKHON MEIN EK" Another beautiful composition by Pancham Da, this song has been beautifully sung by our melody queen, Lata ji and also Late Kishore Kumar sahab. I have played this song by reversing the slider of Hohner 270 in the key of E. Its worth mentioning here that there is no chromatic note in the song as such, so this can be tried out on a diatonic too.

"JANEMAN JANEMAN TERE DO NAYAN" ( CHHOTI SI BAAT) instrumental on harmonica This composition of 'Salil Da' has always been popular among harmonica players in India. For me, this is special as it takes me back to those beautiful moments of 'get together' of some very talented mouthorgan players from across the country. The place was 'New Delhi' and many of us were meeting for the first time. But we always felt as if we knew each other since ages !! I have taken the liberty of adding a few stills from that visit in this video which gives an idea about how we enjoyed there !! The song was played by reversing the slider of hohner chromonica 270 in the key of A (i.e., Bb )

GAIRON PE KARAM ( AAKHEN ).wmv There were two things in this song which appealed to me very much. One was the accurate pronunciation of key urdu words of the song like 'gairon', it sounds so pleasant to the ears, the other was the arabic type music in the beginning and the interludes, its so soothing. Hats off to Lata ji, Ravi sahab and Sahir Ludhiyanvi sahab for this melodious creation.

DECLARED AS THE No.1 VIDEO OF THE FORTNIGHT ON YOU TUBE BY '01Musicguru' and Musical Wizards" A special friend from Pakistan, Nisar bhai, sent me this beautiful track. Had to wait patiently for Sanchit's exams to be over to record this heart touching number. The song had no chromatic notes, so as usual I reversed the slider of my CX-12, making it C# and played the song.

AAO HUZUR TUMKO ( KISMAT ) INSTRUMENTAL ON HARMONICA believe this songs stands out as one of the best compositions of O P Nayyar sahab and thinking about the old recording techniques available during those days ( there was no track recording) one wonders in awe how Asha ji must have sang those lines with a 'sharabi' flavor and with all that laughing and hick ups in between. Truly incredible !!! Playing this melody on harmonica was difficult, I must admit. I have left out the initial 'aalap' and have made many mistakes but was reluctant to rerecord due to 'laziness' perhaps. Today upon repeated insistence of my wife, I am sharing this with all my friends hoping that they would not dislike it very much

SAMA HAI SUHANA SUHANA.... ( HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL ) movie, "GHAR GHAR KI KAHANI" This composition of music maestro 'Kalyanji Anandji' was one of the favourite songs of Kishore Da and he used to perform this song frequently in his live shows. In the original movie sequence, the song has been filmed on 'Jalal Aaga', however, I have added some video clippings from my recent trip to Kullu-Manali, which I think matches well with the theme. Played on Hohner Super Chromonica in the key of G#. The audio track used is for non commercial purpose only, and no copyright infringement is intended.

HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL OF THE SONG, "KISI NA KISI SE" FROM THE MOVIE, "KASHMIR KI KALI" Harmonica is a unique musical instrument in the sense that while playing it, the tongue has an important role, and that the other person or audience cannot see it. So it is a real challenge to properly learn this and also teach others. This song has all its interludes played in harmonica and therefore occupies a special place in the hearts of harmonica lovers. The original song has been filmed on great Shammi Kapoor, but I have added some clippings from my trip to Chandigarh, Pinjore Gardens and Kasauli to share some beautiful views.

I have no claim on the video clippings used and karaoke track which have been taken from different sources for sharing amongst harmonica/instrumental music lovers.

JAHAN MEIN JAATI HOON ( CHORI CHORI ) This is a very very old number from the B/W era, a time when many of us were not even born. But it has been said that music never dies, it seems so correct when we listen to these melodies today and try to copy it. If you watch the video of this song, there is very cute puppet show in it. Hats off to Lata ji and Manna Dey sahab for their contribution to Indian Music.

AAO TUMHE CHAND PE LE JAAYEIN ( FILM - ZAKHMEE ) This song is one of the beautiful creations of Bappi Lahiri sahab, from the film, Zakhmee.

Personally I like the melody of "AAO TUMHE" and the way it blends with "JINGLE BELLS", the famous rhyme.The song has been played in Hohner Chromonica 270 in the key of D#

PHOOLON KA TAARON KA ( HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA ).wmv A great song depicting the pure love between a brother and a sister, this song came in my mind as I was fondly remembering my elder sisters, who are physically far away but very close to my heart. This composition by our great maestro, Pancham Da always seems to be fresh whenever you hear it. I dedicate this rendition to my sisters, Kamlesh Didi at Ghaziabad and Meena Didi at Edmonton,Canada. This clip also contains some family pictures, which I hope they would like. I am missing you today, Didi.........

O HASINA ZULFON WALIThis is another great composition of our maestro, PANCHAM DA. In my view , one of the specialty of this composition is that the "mukhda" and "antara" are in different scales. The song has been beautifully sung by the ever versatile, Asha ji and late Rafi sahab. I have tried to capture the mood of the song through my recital.

HARMONICA INSTRUMENTAL OF A BEAUTIFUL SONG, "EHSAAN TERA", FROM THE MOVIE 'JUNGLEE' In Indian film Industry, there have been some compositions, which are so melodious that they are sung by both the male and female lead singers seperately. This composition, from the movie, Junglee, written by Hasrat Jaipuri sahab and delicately composed by the great Shankar Jaikishan, was sung both by Lata ji and Late Rafi sahab and even today people argue who sung it better. I hereby put forward my attempt to play this lovely song and would like to thank Sri Swarup Mitra from Raniganj, a harmonica teacher par excellence, who heard this on telephone and corrected me at some vital places. I have played this with 'Hohner270, in the key of C#' ( slider reversed )
