Another well-known qawaali III

One more version I must share with you before I end this post, which has already been getting too long and forcing me to break it up into parts.

This is a version by the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and it is so enthusiastically sung that no one can resist from joining in at some point of time. This is one of those which have to be heard… to be experienced and are not at all, easy to describe…. but still. As I said, Nusat was one of those who sang different versions of the qawaali….. The one titled “Jhoole Laalan” keeps close to the original version:

O Laal Meri Pat Rakhiyo Bhala Jhoole Laalan
Sindri-A Ja Sehvan Ja Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar
Shahbaz Qalandar, Sakhi Shahbaz Qalandar
Duma Dum Mast Qalandar, Duma Dum Mast Qalandar
Ali Dum Dum De Andar, Ali Dum Dum De Andar
O Laal Meri Pat Rakhiyo Bhala Jhoole Laalan
Sindri Da Sehvan Da Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar

Chaar Charaag Tere Baran Hamesha
Panjwa Baaran Aayi Bhala Jhoole Laalan
O Panjwa Mein Baaran Aayi Bhala Jhoole Laalan
Sindri-A Ja, Sehvan Ja Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar
Shahbaz Qalandar….

Uchra Roza Peera Tera, Uchra Roza Peera Tera
Geth Wa’ge Gharyaal Bhala Jhoole Laalan
Sindri Ja Sehvan Ja Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar
Shahbaz Qalandar…..

Ghanan Ghanan Teri Nobat Waagay
…(Dhol Beats)
Ghanan Ghanan Teri Nobat Waagay
Naal Vajay Gharyaal Bala Jhoole Laalan
Sindri-A Ja Sehvan Ja Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar
Shahbaz Qalandar…..

So as you see, not much variation here. But see this version….. the one I was referring too.

  1. Hello, thank you for these posts. I have recently started listening to different versions of these particular qawaalis and have been fascinated by them. I gather that the first version above (Sindri-A Ja Sehvan Ja Sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar…) is in Punjabi, is the second one (Rab ne kinne shaman baneye…) as well? Thank you, Aaron S.

    • Yes, it is also Punjabi… that is one of the unique features of this qawwali – praising a saint whose shrine is deep in Sindh in pure Punjabi
