3. Hukus Bukus (Eid version) by Mohammad Muneem feat. MC Kash
Here’s a different version and emotionally powerful rendition of this old folk song. This takes to the journey of a boy who seeks answers when he sees the Martyrs’ graveyard at Eidgah. MC Kash, Kashmir’s biggest rapper weaves rhymes that just leave you spellbound.
Irfan-Bilal the duo went to the United States on various concerts organised Funkar International (this organisation has made a lot of effort to revive Kashmiri folk culture). This folk song is by default known by everyone, our grandmothers would sing these when we would refuse to eat our Batte with Hakh or when we were home with cousins and didn’t have the luxury of smartphones. Bring out the palms, eh?
