True track 2: “O Re Piya” by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

For me, a good song has to be cleverly made to help the listener reflect, and feel positive emotions after the experience.

This song, from India, is a relatively new song made in an ancient musical style known as “Ghazal”. Here’s the link:

The instruments are commonly used for Indian songs, the more famous of which is the Indian tabla(which has been used in Selena Gomez’s “Come and get it”. So versatile, right ?)

The offbeat harmonium chords, along with the Indian flute, and the singer’s distinctive timber lend itself to the magnificence of this song.
