BiharSong – Bihar Mein Ee Baa
In the election campaign, the BJP and the JD(U) released a Bhojpuri song, ‘Bihar mein ee baa’, which refers to the Nitish Kumar government. The song is sung by singer Neha Singh Rathore. This popular song criticizes the current NDA government in Bihar and talks about the deteriorating law and order situation. It also mentions a number of wrongdoings.
The song was also used by the RJD, Congress, and the Nitish government. In the BJP version, the lyrics talk about developing Bihar and mention investment in educational institutions and startups. However, the song has received mixed reviews from music lovers. As of November 2018, the song is still being used for election campaigns. While the BJP version has largely received positive reviews, it still has to prove its value in the election.
Some of the most famous Bihar folk songs originated in Bhojpur. Chandraka Rai, Mahendar Misir, and Sukuta Das are some of the most well-known Bhojpuri singers. Bhojpuri folk songs are generally about everyday life, such as family life, religion, and rituals. During Hindu temple festivals, these songs are played with the help of dholaks.
