It’s an event where the playlist you curate can be as critical as the colors you choose to play with.

It’s unimaginable to celebrate Holi without the added charm of Bollywood’s foot-tapping music that has songs tailor-made for this festive delight. Holi in India is as much about the vibrant rhythm and melodies as it is about the splashes of color. Setting the festive spirit soaring are a few timeless tracks from the treasure trove of Bollywood that continue to echo in every corner where Holi is celebrated with vigour.

One such evergreen melody is ‘Holi Ke Din’ from the landmark film ‘Sholay,’ released in 1975. The legendary singers Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar lent their voices to this masterpiece, which was composed by the maestro R.D. Burman. The song perfectly encapsulates the essence of Holi – its infectious energy, the excitement brimming in the air, and the playful spirit that takes over all participants. With lyrics that paint a picture of the joyous festival and a tune that makes you want to dance with abandon, ‘Holi Ke Din’ is a tribute to the spirit of Holi.

Adding to the festival’s excitement is the iconic song ‘Rang Barse.’ This track from Yash Chopra’s romantic film ‘Silsila’ has stood the test of time, becoming an anthem for Holi celebrations across generations. With Amitabh Bachchan’s baritone voice and his charismatic screen presence, this song captures the merriment and the color-packed festivities of Holi, making it a must-play on this occasion.

It has the magic to lift the spirits and add a dash of romance to the air, complementing the cheerful vibes of Holi.

‘Making its mark as a contemporary favorite, ‘Do Me A Favor, Let’s Play Holi’ captures the essence of modern Holi celebrations while retaining the traditional fervor. Featuring Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra, the song delivers a powerful dose of enthusiasm with its lively beats and fast-paced rhythm. It holds a special place among fans, highlighting the chemistry shared by the two stars, and is particularly significant as it marked the last on-screen pairing of the duo.

No Holi playlist would be complete without the mention of the hit track ‘Balam Pichkari.’ Sung by Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade, this song continues to resonate with the young and the young-at-heart, featuring a blend of traditional and contemporary dance moves.
