Heer Ranjhe di Kahani

Punjabi song by Kuldeep Manak


This is a series of songs by Kuldeep Manak, telling different phases in the legend of Heer Ranjha. What's special about these songs is that they feature recently written lyrics, not the ones from classical Punjabi poetry (which is usually the case when it comes to singing folk legends). Another startling difference is the approach towards narrating the legend; the lyrics are closer to reality, refreshing, and quite entertaining.
