Allah hoo




Traditional sufi folk music from Punjab(pak). The instrument this artist is using is called Toomba, its a variation of ek-taara the one stringed instrument used by wandering sanyasis. The artist is Saieen Zahoor, who was singing at sufi shrines and was recently discovered(so to speak) by the connected(dis-connected) modern world. You can google and learn more about his interesting life story.

jin haq(truth) da raaj dikhaaya hai 
una jhoot mana farmaaya hai

Fantastic song! Thanks!

While such a modern band and stage is not his natural-environ, such is his "drownedness" that he is perfectly at ease here too... He is truly spiritual...
