Music and symphony are deeply anchored in Kilam’s bloodline, while Amit Kilam’s daughters Meyhaa and Kaira do everything to revive the popular Kashmiri folk song “Roshè”. The Indian Ocean drummer and singer also gives his vocals to the track, which was originally written by acclaimed Kashmiri poet Habba Khatoon. The sisters Meyhaa and Kaira bring the audience their soulful interpretation of the folk song, which Kashmir and its heritage is sacred. Filled with anger, anger, passion and pain, ‘Roshè’ is minimalist but evocative, gentle but thought-provoking.
Interestingly, this particular track marks the launch of the talented duo’s YouTube channel, on which they hope to bring music lovers songs that are close to their hearts. Singers Meyhaa and Kaira say: “Music was a natural development for us and something that we were organically drawn to. We wanted to start our channel with a song like Roshè because it set new standards in poetic meters. The song is full of desperation and longing, emotions that are difficult to convey vocally and that have really challenged us. We hope that the listeners like it. “
Drummer and singer Amit Kilam adds: “It was special to work on this track with Meyhaa and Kaira, who are both passionate about the craft and are musically gifted. To be honest, it’s a very proud moment for me as a father and ‘Roshè’ will always have a special place in my heart. “
Meyhaa & Kaira’s ‘Roshè’ with Amit Kilam will appear on the YouTube channel of Meyhaa Kaira Music and all streaming platforms on September 16.
