Mohd Rafi & Asha Bhosle

Mohd Rafi
As you can read in one of my earlier posts, the population of Suriname came from all over the world.
The people from India/Pakistan make a large portion of that population nowadays .
Todays song is a song me and my brothers used to sing, somewhere in the sixties, when we where on our school vacation on a plantation called "Meerzorg". It was mostly populated by Hindustani people.
A great uncle and aunt of mine had a grocery store near the Meerzorg dock and a orange plantation where we stayed during our vacations.

We spent many great vacations there, fishing, hunting, catching crabs during the tide and catching song birds who came to the rise fields to feed.

Asha Bhosle
If there are people from Suriname who have more of these 50's and 60's Hindustani songs, that where hits back in Suriname, and want to share them................................ Please contact me.

Both performers are from India
