Dooba Dooba of Silk Route (cover)

I think it was after my pre-degree years that I came to watch the video of this beautiful song by Silk Route in the music channels. Actually it was the video which was the most talked about thing than the song itself because the entire song video was shot under water and it was a differently attempt. It happens so in the music industry that even a beautiful and different song needs a well-made video sell it out in the market for masses. Their first album Boondein was a huge hit and the song Dooba Dooba won so many awards within India. Even though their music was categorized into Indi-Pop, it certainly stood different from run-off-the-mill indi-pop songs and belonged to a more folk-rock category.

Their first album Boondein which has the song Dooba Dooba was released in 1997 and the band released it's second album Pehchaan in 2000, but then it was a long silence. Then the news came out that the band has formally dissolved. Being a big fan of Silk Route's music and lead singer Mohit Chauhan's voice, it was a huge dissapoint to me. I thought this band could lead the popular Indian music (other than the filmy or classical music) to a higher level. Later on the lead singer Mohit rendered vocals in some Hindi films and all were a treat to listen to.

Here is my attempt in singing the all-time hit of Silk Route - Dooba Dooba.
