‘Kandi sunlaye bathere, mae jhute lare tere’ [I’m done listening to your fake promises and lies] ‘Yaad Anah’ is a reminder that Bohemia is no stranger to personal tales. As a man who offers his fans every part of him, with no taboos, on every single album, he is what personal experiences are to music what a glove is to a hand. He thrives off reciting his own tales of love, lust and intoxication. He’s not phased by the public impression of him. Bohemia has a story to tell, and so he tells it.
A few months back, Bohemia wrote a song called ‘Rooh’, which was about the tragically ended relationship between him and his ex-girlfriend. ‘Yaad Anah’ is a non-commercial Hip Hop version of the said song. ‘…Mor challi nale minu tofe sare maere, mae kia chad de chadna ve sokha tere vaste, apa kere tere piche mar challe’[ She returned all the gifts I had given her as she left and I said; leave! Leaving is the easy way out, I’m not dying for you to stay] Bohemia’s verses contrast the maddening mystery of how a love that began so warmly with gifts could devolve into something so toxic. With a brilliantly realistic depth and sincerity, which is none-existent in today’s music. As the Poet of modern Hip Hop, Bohemia delivers lyrics that harbor no taboos, no faults, with a masterful concept of a an epic chorus; ‘Apah chad ditta sajna nu yaad anah’ [I stopped myself from showing up in her memories].
To create a rap song that discusses something so realistic takes a brilliant way with words, a strikingly emotional vocal performance, and an immense amount of attention to emotion, self-searching, honesty, experience and realization. ‘Yaad Anah’ is the stunning epitome of exactly that.
