Silkroute stormed the Indian music scene in late 90's with their amazing video Dooba Dooba. Once you got past the video you realise that the lead vocals are heavenly, which belong to Mohit Chauhan. Their music reminds you of the hills. Their songs are simple with beautiful lyrics and haunting melodies. Just listen to Boondein or Humsafar or Sapnay, you will know what I mean.
Its been 4 or more years since they released Pehchaan. I was googling on them to know latest news about them and came up on this song Khoon chala from Rang De Basanti sung by Mohit Chauhan. It is a beautiful song with nuances that evoke courage, hope and pain sung majestically in a silken voice. I can't see anyone else be able to sing this song and evoke similar emotions.
Listen to Khoon chala
Listen to Boondein, Pehchaan
