Khwaja Ki Joganiya Mein Ban Jaon gi - Abdul Rahim Fareedi Qawwal

Abdul Rahim Fareedi Qawwal party is at their best in this superb recital. The tarz (tune), the thaat, the taankari, sargam and on to the pure classical style of recital, with simple traditional instruments, and the wonderfully endearing words such as "mohay raam qasam moray nainan mein khwaja ki sooratiya poor bhaei", in fact from every standpoint this is a very special rendition of the qawwali "Khwaja Ki Joganiya Mein Ban Jaon gi". Each one of the singers seem to be in their prime. It is a small and intimate gathering of a responsive audience who are enjoying every bit of the singing. One is feeding off the other as they flow in waves from one high to another. Every so often the singing becomes gentle, sensitive and soft. Packed with love and devotion for Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz Hazrat Moinuddin Chisti. This has got to be one of the all time "must hear" in your collection of amazing kalams.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to OSA in UK for preserving the three or four CDs and DVDs that they made of this concert. They have been a source of such pure and unadulterated pleasure for so many of us qawwali lovers and will continue to bring joy to future generations. Please support them by buying their music CDs.
