Hindi Rock Songs by Sifar

With a unique sound of Electronica mixed with Rock, “Shaitan” adds a totally new dimension to Hindi music especially as far as hindi rock songs are concerned. Released as part of Sifar’s second album “2”, “Shaitan” is hailed as one of the best Sifar songs by many fans and blogs throughout the internet.Download “Shaitan”
Song: Kala Aasman
Another fan favorite! “Kala Aasman” was originally released as a Demo in 2009, and has had a serious following ever since! The song was also part of Sifar’s debut album in 2011.Download “Kala Aasman”
Song: Aaj Kal
“Aaj Kal” has been a bit of a strange phenomena. While it can’t be classified in hindi rock songs in a traditional Sifar sense – considering that very few hard core Sifar fans would consider it their favorite, but it has found its way to a more casual audience over the years. So much so, that lately it has been the most searched for among our songs by a large margin!Download “Aaj Kal”
Song: Roko Na Mujhe
The first song recorded by Sifar way back in March 2008. Still considered by many fans as the best of Sifar’s various hindi rock songs. “Roko Na Mujhe” is a straight up, no nonsense hindi rock song.Download “Roko Na Mujhe”
So, there you go! 5 hindi rock songs that we would recommend checking out if you’re new to Sifar! If you’re feeling a bit brave, then head on to our music page and check out all the songs that we have released so far! Let us know which is YOUR favorite!
