Introduction to Sufi Music

Why Sufi Music is the best example of two different religions and people can coexist and have a big party.

Sufi Music

Sufi music is the devotional music of the Sufis, inspired by the works of Sufi poets, like Rumi, Hafiz, Bulleh Shah, Amir Khusrow and Khwaja Ghulam Farid. Qawwali is the most well known form of Sufi music, and is most commonly found in the Sufi culture of the Indian Subcontinent.

yeh jo halka halka suroor hai                        – This slight intoxication that I have
ye tere nazron ka kasoor hai                         – Is all the fault of your looking at me
ke sharab peena sikha diya hai                     -That has taught me to take up drinking
tere pyar ne tere chahne                                                                            —– Your love and your wanting
teri bhehki behki neegah ne mujhe ek sharaabi banadiya                 —–Your intoxicating  looks has made me an alcoholic
pilaadi hai apni kiss nazar se ke mujhe hosh nhi hai                          —– You have served the drink with a single look and now I am not in my senses
