I recently recorded my first Bollywood song on the piano this year, which is the ever popular Mere Rashke Qamar from the 2017 film Baadshaho.
Mere Rashke Qamar is one of those instantly likeable songs, even though this version was actually a remake of the original song which has been sung and composed by Qawalli legend the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Coincidentally, it is his nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who has sung the remade version of the song.
While I am not an ardent fan of Bollywood remaking old songs, this version most definitely appealed to me and so I decided to learn to play it by ear on the piano. Listen to the original song below and then my piano solo. As always, all feedback is welcome!
