aaja khelo shaama sanga hori

This composition is a hori, which is sung around the time of Holi, the Indian festival of colors. I am not sure who the composer is (if you know, please drop me a line). This hori describes Krishna and his beautiful lover, Radha, playing holi. The poet invites you to come and play with them, with pitchkari water squirters filled with saffron-colored water.
