Konkani Song Book

Greatest Konkani Song Hits - Newsletter

The girl was slender with the most beautiful tresses. The boy was tall and tanned and fell in love with her poetry. When they finally met it was love at first sight, but......

Her father would have none of it!

So they fled to Italy, and Elisabeth and Robert Browning became the most famous Romantic poets in history. And she wrote these magical lines for him -

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..."

Almost a hundred and thirty years later another young poet from Mangalore, India, also wrote -

"How do I love thee? And yet I cannot have..." Mog tuzo kithlo axelom, thitloi labonk na maka

Wilfy Rebimbus was asked to compose the music for the 1977 Konkani movie "Mog ani Moipass", out of which emerged this fabulous melody.

A unique Indian flavour in a Western tune....

And therein lies the beauty of Konkani music. But you don't have to elope to grab this lovely!

"Mog Tuzo Kithlo Axelom" is another diamond from the "Greatest Konkani Song Hits, Vol.1" SongBook, coming your way on 20 August.

Enjoy the full version on the free DVD included with the sheet-music, lyrics, chords, etc.:

Musically yours,
Francis
