Like A Sufi (Live & Unplugged) – Mohammad Muneem Nazir – 101 India

 

Mohammad Muneem Nazir, frontrunner of Sufi-ethnic rock band Alif, enthralled us with a live, acoustic rendition of his and MC Kash’s new hit Sufi rap, Like A Sufi. The word Sufi carries with it a mystic element. Like A Sufi aims to capture that mysticism, the feeling of being lost in the search for truth. Sung in Kashmiri (or Kosur), a language spoken primarily in the valley of Kashmir and Chenab, the song is an attempt to save this dying language.

Lyrics:

Bobai bobai suin kya ranuth peer saeri samkhin aai
(Oh grandmother, what did you cook for dinner? Peers have come to dine)

Be hai samkhai
(Shall meet you)

Lol jigras jigre lol wandai
(To you, I give my heart full of longing)
Astanan Khasai
(Oh I shall walk to “astaan”)
Deedar Karai
(And we shall be face to face)

Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
(You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!)
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
(You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!)
Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
(You shattered my longing heart into small pieces o where do you hide!)
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
(You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!)

Be hai samkhai
(Shall meet you)

Taveez karo, Taqreer karo, Astano mein tum khud se milo
(Do all that you can to hide your truth, Alas one day you shall face your own self.)

Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
(You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!)
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
(You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!)
Lol jigras kartiem Kanje kanje che kati pane
(You shattered my longing heart into small pieces oh where do you hide!)
Lol Jigras kartiem Teer che peer panas.
(You pierced sharp arrows into my longing heart and there you sit like a saint!)
