Can you people suggest some songs?

I think I have become the "frog in the well", listening to the same playlist. You can also suggest singers, composers, lyricists, albums etc.

A bhojpuri folk song. 

People migrating from their hometown to other states or countries is a major theme in Bhojpuri folk songs. In colonial times, Indentured labourers (Girmitiya: literally meaning agreement) were taken to other countries like Mauritius, Caribbean islands etc for plantation works. Although the terms of agreements were rarely followed, so they lived in very precarious conditions and eventually settled there only. 

Migration to meet their basic needs meet is still a major issue in Bhojpur area.

 Lyrics: (copy pasted)
Humni ke chhori ke nagariya ae baba..
Ki arre baba chhori dihala ghar-parivaar kahun banwa maayi gayili ho..
Humni ke chhori ke nagariya ae baba..
Ki aaho baba soooni kayi ke gharwa-duvaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho,


Leaving my town, dear father,
Leaving the family behind, to which wilderness mother has gone..
Leaving my town, dear father,
Pushing the home into loneliness, to which wilderness mother has gone..

Gaunwaan ke logawa, kehu-kehu se na bolein..
Chhotaka laikawaa, bhora-hi se aankh nahin kholey..

He isn’t talking to anybody in the village,
The small boy isn’t even opening his eyes since morning…

Sunsaan bhaiyili dagariya ae baba…
Ki arre baba nimiya ho gayil patjhaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho..

The roads are all deserted,
And the Neem tree has shed its leaves, to which wilderness mother has gone..

Kaisa-hoo ae baba, humaraa maayi se milaa da
Saparo tajaa ke humro araj sunaa da..

Do whatever, but let me meet the mother once..
Anyhow convey my message to her.. dear father..

Chhutka ke chhote-ba umiriya re baba..
Ki arre baba, pari lin hum pauwwaan tohaar kawan banwa maayi gayi li ho..
Ki aaho baba soooni kayi ke anganwa-duvaar, kawan banwa maayi gayili ho,


The younger brother has little age, father…
I fall at your feet tell me, to which wilderness mother has gone..
Pushing the home into loneliness, to which wilderness mother has gone..

@Naadan_Parinda this led me to do multiple google searches on what is actually the Bhojpur region and whether it's given the status of a scheduled language of the 8th Schedule, while also listening to the song simultaneously, which is totally awesome! :)
