Rangabati is a most popular folk song from the Sambalpur region of Odisha, India. On Coke studio, it is re-interpreted as a beautiful bi-lingual conversation of Sambalpuri & Tamil. The eternal adoration of the beloved in Rangabati is connected to the love for one’s roots & mother in the Tamil Rap & finally celebrates the love of one’s motherland in Bande Utkal Janini.
Sona Mohapatra sings an ode to her home state Odisha & is joined by the rapper duo Tony & Rajesh from Dharavi, Mumbai & the latest music star from the state of Odisha, the supremely talented Rituraj Mohanty.
For those people who don’t understand these languages, the song has English subtitles. I too don’t know these languages (Sambalpuri & Tamil). I love this song. Folk songs are always pleasant to listen.
