[Video] A Telangana song that you will keep humming

There is something so soothingly, soulfully beautiful about rural Telangana folk songs. I don’t know if it is because the lyrics, the language is born out of the real-life experiences of the people. There is no pretense about it. It is simple, evocative and so real, it is what the culture of Telangana is all about. 

Filter Kaapi brings you the `Nelamma Nelamma Neeku vela vela vandanalamma’ song written by famous lyricist and writer Suddala Ashok Teja. Sung here by farmer Giribabu, this celebrates mother earth and what she means to her children. You hear it once and I can bet you will be humming it through the day, it will stay with you.
