Yes, you’ve heard this one many times before. However, Master Saleem, made the crowd go crazy on every beat of this supremely energetic Sufi song. Seeing the crowd, you could feel the heartbeats rising just listening to the music.

2. Katiya Karun

The very young, Harshdeep Kaur with her band rocked the stage with her performances. Her most famous song ‘Katiya Karun’ made people sing along with her. Fifty minutes of the performance and audience was left asking for more.

3. Khali Dil

One of the kings of Sufi music, Hans Raj Hans, amazed the crowd with his Shayeris & Qawalis. Starting off with his slow Sufi songs, the rhythm took pace and he took his music to a higher note by ‘Khali Dil’ of Kacchee Dhage. The respect for this Padma Shri recipient was very evident from the standing ovation he received for his impressive performance.

4. Jeena Jeena

Whirling her beautiful red gown with the Sufi pose, this lovely lady made a Sufiana impact on her music. Her soulful songs made the audience teary eyed, especially the song ‘Jeena Jeena’. The magic created by this song was unmatched to what we see on television.

5. Tu Mane Ya Nah Maane

The Mirchi Sufi Fest clearly saved the best for the last. The living legends, Wadali Brothers won it all. It was a sheer honor to witness Puranchand Wadali singing passionately even at the age of 80. Tu mane ya nah maane and Rangrez emerged as top favourites for the audience. 

 

In the end the Wadali Brothers were honoured with a painting by Cosmic Heart Gallery. ‘Allah’ was written in Urdu on the painting. They got emotional on receiving this piece of art.

For those who missed the Sufi Fest, don’t lose heart. We have a Rajasthani Fest coming up soon at the Dome. Mazhar Nadiadwala, MD, NSCI Dome wishes to bring the authentic Indian culture back to light which is losing its essence in this fast changing world.
