  • Qawwali's, etc.
     OP - January 24, 2011, 07:17 PM

    A salaam Alaikum,

    I have recently moved to Karachi, and I was wondering if anyone knew about any Qawwali events, Ghazals, poetry smash's (Mushiarahs)?

    Shukriya.

    After Nusrat passed away, I have no idea who the next big qawwali artist is.  His nephew Rahat should've continued his legacy but he's singing bollywood songs now.

    Apart from Rahat, he also has another pair of nephews called Rizwan and Muazzam and they're pretty good.

    "Kangna" by Fareed Ayaz & Abu Muhammad, Coke Studio, Season 4

    preview
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR6JOYGdT_k&feature=related

    actual song
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXmIpbBOSvI&list=PLF43CB7ECEA387532

    KANGNA – FAREED AYAZ & ABU MUHAMMAD

     

    Title: Kangna - کنگنا - Bracelet

    Language: Braj, Persian

    Poetry: Mirza Qateel (d. 1817), Bedam Shah Warsi (d. 1936) and others

     

    In a probable depiction of the way early qawwali was rendered, Kangna borrows liberally from a variety of sub-continental influences to convey a message of universal love. While the essentially spiritual theme is expressed through the imagery of culturally significant symbolism, in both idiomatic Hindi and in Farsi, the emotional relevance of the raag, Malkauns in combination with musical elements from Hindu devotional music enhances the conceptual basis of Kangna.

     

    اے کنگنا

    kill us she did with coquetry and made “fate” the excuse

    خود سوئے ما نہ دید و حیا را بہانہ ساخت

    khud su-i ma nah deed o haya ra bahaanah saakht

    she willfully failed to look our way and made “shyness” the excuse

     

    بر دوشِ غیر دست نہاد از رہِ کرم

    bar dosh-i ghair dast nihaad az rah-i karam

    out of favour for the stranger (our rival), on his shoulder did she place her hand

    ما را چو دید لغزشِ پا را بہانہ ساخت

    ma ra chu deed laghzish-i pa ra bahaanah saakht

    the moment she sighted us, she made “a slip of the foot” the excuse

    لپک جھپک اور آن اچانک رنگ ڈارو

    lapak jhapak aur aan achaanak rang ḍaaro

    deftly, in the wink of an eye, he cast his colour on me

    موہے مدھوا پلایو

    mohe madhawa pilaayo

    made me drink such heady wine (that I lost myself in him)

    ایسے رنگیلے کے بیدم واری

    aise rangeele ke bedam waari

    Bedam is sacrificed on such a rakish charmer

    جن موہے لال گلال بنایو

    jin mohe laal gulaal banaayo

    who coloured me ruddy, rapturous red!

    Why would anyone say chuck the fatty to Qawwali? Huh? It's more appropriate to say that to Bhangra.
