Rain, love, and music – a beautiful amalgamation that has captivated artists and listeners throughout history. In the enchanting world of music, Hoopr, a leading music licensing company, has recently unveiled their latest release, “Saawan.” This melodic masterpiece, composed by the talented Gaurav Dagaonkar, takes inspiration from the raag Jog and is bound to leave you spellbound. Let’s delve deeper into the creation and essence of this captivating monsoon track.
On a rainy morning, Gaurav Dagaonkar, the founder and CEO at Songfest & Hoopr, found himself immersed in an experimental journey with beats. It was during this creative exploration that the word “Saawan” struck him as profoundly beautiful. Driven by this inspiration, he decided to infuse the composition with an earthy arrangement, effectively capturing the essence of the rainy season. The composition is based on Raag Jog, this is actually his 3rd composition in the raag Jog, previous two being collaborations with Arman Mallik and KK, respectively. He’s also the composer and music director of the popular track, ‘Mein Dhoondne Ko Zamaane Mein’ with Arijit Singh. Gaurav is also a classically trained singer himself.
Gaurav then approached Saaveri Verma, a renowned lyricist to lend words to his composition. Saaveri wrote a beautiful story that highlighted love, the nostalgia of monsoon and yearning. The essence and message of the song is that even though the rain is here, my love is not.
Finally to bring Saawan to life, the immensely talented Abhay Jodhpurkar was brought on board to complement the composition with his powerful vocal prowess. Together, this trio weaved a mesmerising tale of longing and love through their exceptional musicality.
Saawan, firmly rooted in raag Jog, emerges as a heartfelt love letter from the singer to their beloved. Rain, a central theme in the song, takes on a metaphorical role, playfully taunting the singer and intensifying their yearning for the return of their love. As the singer’s patience wears thin, they begin to curse the rain, an embodiment of their suffering and longing. Through poignant lyrics and soulful melodies, Saawan delves into the profound connection between love and rain.
As the raindrops cascade, so does the catchy rhythm of Saawan, produced by Sunset Tribe. With its upbeat tempo and infectious melody, the track enthrals listeners, inviting them to sway along with its infectious groove.
