My first sitar guru who passed away has a wonderful version of this on sitar. He plays it here:


Sorry I can't provide a direct translation. I have heard the translation before though and the song is about the river, where it goes and where it comes from. A very lovely song sang to the river. One of my favorite songs and always brings such fond memories of my guru.

Just checked out the youtube clip & saw the other link to the song. I've asked the uploader for a translation.
In the meantime check out this clip I put up of the late,great master a while ago. From 80s Brit TV.

Had a reply from Youtube gent....

chanchal47 has replied to your comment on O Nodi Re Hemanta Mukhopadhaya:
I welcome nick to my space ..Thanks for dropping down
it will be like this ..Roughly
Oh my river I am asking you only once
where is your country, will you not stop ever

you don't have any barriers, is that why you are out of your home , I see you in high tide and low ebb

you break this bank and create the other
but what you do who has lost all ...
you dont have time to relax and talk to me
you can tell me about your sorrows and happiness
oh my friend my River ..
That is all about

So there we are then!!

That was a quick resonse, thank you, Nick !
The text content fits so good to this melody. I like also the instrumental version from Patric Marks, and tried to play tablas with the recording. Dha Den Na Dha Ten Na. Does someone know the exact Bols ?

I`ve found this page here, certainly you know, the prosperone, as a student of Patric Marks :

http://patric-marks.com/media.html

there is also the instrumental version, in a nice mixed quality and a lot of fine other compositions.

The original text of "o nadi re" is this:

o nadii re, ekTi kotha shudhaai shudhu toomaare
bolo kothaay tomaare desh, tomaare naai ki chalaare sheSh
o nadii re


tomaare kono baa Ndhon naai, tumi ghar-chhaar Daa ki taai
ei aachho bhaarTaaye aabaar ei to dekhi jowaare
bolo kothaay tomaar desh ...


e kulu behnge o kulu tumi gorDo
jaar ekul o kul dukule galo taare laagi Ti karo


aamaay bhaabchho michhe'i por, tomaare naai ki abashar
sukhu duk chere kothaa kichhu koile naa hoy aamaare
bolo kothaay tomaar desh ...


-- Arunabha

There are a lots of generic dadra variations and mukdey wich are very popular with Bengoli people (they play on khol mridang instrument - example:
). Besides Dha Tin Na Dha Tun Na Try this: Dhi Dhaghe Tha Thi ThaGhe Dha or this one: DhikDhaThaneThaneChikThaThaneDhane
[size=85](Dhik = Chak/chik + Ghe)[/size] and plain: DhidDhaThaThidThaneThid ThaThaDhidDhane and as mukda you can play Tha-Tha-Tha-ThaTetekitetakeTha(-) or simply ThaTetekitetakeTha(-)

From my understanding, the taal for how it is in the sitar youtube video is khemta taal, some variation of Dadra as I understand.

I see. I will try to play the bols the next days. What is the difference from khemta taal to normal Dadra ?
