Harmukh Bartal is a very famous and beautiful Kashmiri love song. Kashmiri Pandits sing it as a bhajan whereas Kashmiri Muslims sing it as a love song. It recently became more famous when this song was used in The Family Man which you can stream on Amazon Prime. The original writer of the song is unknown and there are a couple of versions of this song.

The real meaning of this song is not known and many people have just assumed the meaning of this beautiful song. But I did some reached and talked to some of my Kashmiri friends and then made a perfect meaning for those who don’t understand the Kashmiri language. In short, the meaning of this song is depicted by a woman who waits for her lover at the gates of Harmukh (a sacred mountain in Kashmir) and expresses her love for her lover.

For Kashmiri Pandits, this song is Maa Parvati’s love-hymn for Lord Shiva, and for Muslims, this song is a powerfully emotional song of a woman who expresses her love for her lover. Many Kashmiris also believe that Harmukh Bartal resembles Nightingale of Kashmir, Habba Khatoon who was a great Kashmiri poetess. 

Harmukh Bartal Lyrics

Harmukh bar tal praraey (zaagaey) Madano,

Yee Dapham tee (yee) laagyoo,

 

Posh (shaeyri) dapham,

Golab (shaeyri) laagaey Madano,

 

Yee Dapham tee laagyoo,

Phambas ti Naaras mil goom,

 

Valla tche path dil goom,

Be’no ye dooryer tchalay Madano,

 

Ye dapham ti lagayo,

Kabeel’e Drayas Pranaey,

 

Kya osum Deklanay,

Be’no ye dooryer tchalay Madano,

 

Harmukh bar tal  praraey Madano,

Yee Dapham tee laagyoo,

 

Kongas karmay chamayee,

Maenz ho lagith naman,

 

Mushtakh goham kaman Madano,

Yee Dapham tee laagyoo,

 

Yaawan myaanay Thazro,

T’chekor dejyo Nazro,

 

Kaaei we’tce hung Zazoor Madano,

Yee Dapham tee laagyoo.
