Ever since Instagram Reels was launched, it has been successful in keeping us hooked to our screens all day long. Not only do I enjoy watching fun transition Reels but I also really have fun discovering new music. Apart from giving us non-stop entertainment, Reels has managed to show us a whole new world of engaging music. There are so many awesome tracks that I would have never come across if it weren’t for this fairly new feature by Instagram. While I have also written about the English tracks Reels introduced me to, today is the day to appreciate some desi music. Here’s a list of desi songs that I started listening to after going down the Reels rabbit hole!
