Brand New Single from Anita Lerche.
She has already shaken the Bhangra scene with her porcelain skin and ability to sing a language not her own and now she's ready to impress the masses with her sophomore album 'Sadke Punjab Ton'. Anita Lerche brings a new aspect of Punjabi culture to life with her single 'Sammi'.
'Sammi' is recognized as a folk dance, which is done by the women of Punjab. It's a dance performed in circles and calls for the ladies to be dressed in colorful lenghas. Anita brings the whole scene to life in her new music video with a dose of romance. The clip evokes a sense of nostalgia as Anita uses music as a medium to conserve culture.
'Sadke Punjab Ton', the album, is a direct reflection of Anita's love and passion for Punjabi culture. With each mustering emotion, Anita will be presenting a visual capturing all our attention to take this journey with her.
English translation of the lyrics:
As the girlfriends flock to the communal well to fetch water,
Pendants shimmer in their ears,
Garlands grace their arms with elegance
And Sammi's anklets jingle lyrically.
Sammi gives it all for love, she belongs to the beloved.
Sammy prays for his long life and offers her own in the bargain
if that is what it takes.
Gardens sing with life, flowers blossom when Sammi thinks about,
speaks of and dances for the beloved.
Sammi offers all to love.
I return to Jhang when you quarrel my lover,
but Jhang to wears the colour of your love.
Sammi pledges all to love.
Sammi's tandoor of pining warms at the terrace
and she readies counted balls of dough
in preparation of food for the lover.
Sammi gives it all to the beloved.
My beloved is within me,
he resides in my heart,
my thoughts and my soul...
Yet one wish I express
That he comes wearing a smile
To his teary-eyed Sammi
The world may know
or remain oblivious
All that matters is that 'he' knows
and reads my heart.
Sammi, the tasteful one
wears a hint of kohl
Ever so delicately
she dons her eye liner...
A mere hint of her love
dances in her eyes
Unlike her friends who wear
it in loud strokes.
Sammi tread on gently
On the path of love,
Bravo Sammi...keep walking in love!
#Heer from the epic love lore of Heer-Ranjha hailed from Jhang in Pakistan
*dhola. Is a beautiful endearment, a call to the darling!
