Congratulations! You have found the first complete discography of Moheener Ghoraguli (মোহিনের ঘোড়াগুলি) on the internet!

Since you are here, you probably already know that Moheener Ghoraguli (also popularly spelt Mohiner Ghoraguli) was a pioneering avant-garde band with the legendary visionary Gautam Chattopadhyay at the helm. Mohiner Ghoraguli, for the first time ever in the history of Bangla music, drew deeply from American and Bengali folk, and in a brilliant set of compositions far removed from mainstream movie-song based stagnancy in Bengali music, laid the groundwork for the Bangla band / world music movement which really kicked off decades later.

However, Mohiner Ghoraguli remain unmatched in their depth of composition and lyrics, as well the passionate delivery of their songs.

Washington Bangla Radio proudly presents, from our archives, the complete discogrpahy of Mohiner Ghoraguli.

Lyrics of Prithibita Naki Choto Hote Hote

Prithibita Naki Choto Hote Hote is perhaps the single most powerful and touching song composed by Mohiner Ghoraguli, rendered brilliantly by Krosswinds featuring Gautam Chattopadhyay, Abraham Mazumdar and Pradip Chattopadhyay. Here are the transliterated lyrics of this gem.

prithibita naki choto hotehote
satellite aar cable er haate
drawing room e rakha boka bakshote bondi
aha ha ha aaaha ha

ghore boshe shara duniyar sathe

ghuche geche desh laal shimanar gondi
aha ha ha aaaha ha

bhebe dekhecho ki
tararao joto alok borsho dure
taro dure
tumi aar ami jai krome shore shore

shari shari mukh ashe aar jae
neshachur chokh tv porday
pokamakorer agun er sathe shongi
aha ha ha aaaha ha

pashapashi boshe aksateh dekha

aha ha ha aaaha ha

hoyto peleo pete pari aaj shongi
aha ha ha aaaha ha

bhebe dekhecho ki
tararao joto alok borsho dure

tumi aar ami jai krome shore shore
