Ishq Sufiana — 6–8:30PM SLT(PDT)

Ishq Sufi­ana — Sufi pas­sion. 

Tonight, Mon­day Night at Mad­hu’s Café fea­tures music inspired by Sufi tra­di­tions, a mys­ti­cal and musi­cal strain of Islam.  Sufi songs are devo­tion­al poems of love and pas­sion — songs of love and desire, yet addressed (at least in part) to God.

Focus­ing on music from North India and Pak­istan, we will hear tra­di­tion­al qawwalis — mys­ti­cal, poet­ic, and ener­getic love songs — such as the music of Nus­rat Fateh Ali Khan and Abi­da Parveen.  We will also hear explore Bol­ly­wood’s take on the qawwali form, both in tra­di­tion­al style and mod­ern ver­sions some­times called “tech­no qawwali” or “dis­co qawwali,” includ­ing songs by A.R. Rah­man and oth­er com­posers.   And, we will hear pop and rock music after the Sufi tra­di­tion, such as the ener­getic and beau­ti­ful songs of Kailash Kher.

Come hang out at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en and enjoy the spir­i­tu­al sounds tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT.  Or, lis­ten in on Radio Riel Main.  Either way, we hope you will join us!
