A sad fact of the Hindi music industry is that it is very reliant on Bollywood. So this thread is for us music lovers to share Hindi songs that we love and that are NOT from films. This is so that more people know and learn about non-film Hindi music and so that good quality songs and artists get appreciated even if they aren't in films.

 
In recent times, for example, we've seen the Sufi genre grow immensely in the music scene, with artists like Kailash Kher, Rabbi Shergill and Rekha Bhardwaj producing great music outside of films.
 
I'd be prticularly interested to learn of any Indian bands that do rock'ish music, about which I know next to nothing.
 
Then there are those genres which have been traditionally quite successful (relatively) in the non-film music business, like bhangra, ghazals, bhajans, 'fusion' - please point out any that you have really liked.
 
My first couple of contributions to this list reflect my mood right now: 'Tere Ishq Mein' and 'Hey Ram'.
 
 
1. 'Tere Ishq Mein' by Rkha Bhardwaj. Composed by Vishal Bhardwaj and written by Gulzar.
 
 
 
2.'Hey Ram' by Jagjit Singh

Thank you for that song. I don't think I've ever heard that song - it's quite catchy! And Neeraj Shridhar seems to be quite a brave chap. Foraying into Indian pop, trying to be popular with a moustache and singing in English - he's breaking all the 'rules'! Good on him.
 
Here's another one from me. It's one of the most significant non film Hindi songs in recent times.
 
'Breathless' by Shankar Mahadevan, written by Javed Akhtar (and video directed by Farhan Akhtar)

I love the melody and lyrics (and singing of course) in Teri Deewani. It is also a great song to sing - I find it has a very soothing effect!

Those who know me on the forum will be surprised by my next choice, because the man behind it is Himesh Reshammiya, someone I have spent considerable time denuncing. But I absolutely love this composition. It sounds so genuine and uncontrived, unlike much of his other work.

 
 
Special mention to Sameer's lyrics - simple but effective.
 
Samjho na, kuchh toh samjho na....
