Jashn E Bahaaraa

Beautiful song...heard it at a friend's wedding recently. Not into Bollywood, but this one hits the spot. The flute is intoxicating...

Yea this is very popular. I hear it sometimes in the background when people recite poetry. I just love the use of the Riqq and like you say the flute. The flute melody is so simple, yet you feel the breath and velocity of each note hit. The Oud part at 1:26 I loved how there are little pitch blends to kind of mimic a middle-eastern environment, which makes sense since the movie is something about the Mughal empire I think.

Yes, the Flute and the Oud are amongst my favorite instruments, mash'Allah. Yes, the movie is definitely about the Mughal empire.
I heard the song at a wedding (instrumental version), so it was nice because I had no pre-conceived notions or images or videos to attribute the song to. This piece has a beautiful effect on the soul, mash'Allah, if one is listening w/ an open heart.
