Fariha Pervez featuring Muazzam Ali Khan

Language: Punjabi

Opening Season 6’s many different flavors and elements, is  ‘Jogi’ – a song that brings the funk and groove of Western Brass elements to Qawwali. While open to interpretation, the song talks of connecting with the ever elusive ‘Jogi’, and in this process the underlying theme of recognizing what lies beyond the surface of who we are and connecting with that Source.

Opening Season 6’s many different flavors and elements, is  ‘Jogi’ – a song that brings the funk and groove of Western Brass elements to Qawwali. While open to interpretation, the song talks of connecting with the ever elusive ‘Jogi’, and in this process the underlying theme of recognizing what lies beyond the surface of who we are and connecting with that Source. In what appears to be a whimsical conversation created by the Sufi poet Baba Bulleh Shah, the Qawwali showcases the female perspective of a moment in an imaginary story – the moment when we witness the complete submission to the Love within when in the pursuit of Love’s many worldly manifestations. A story told many times in folklore, it represents an awakening when Love is found as a result of experiencing the Self alongside the contrasting shades of Beauty and Tragedy that accompany such a feeling.

The vocals are delivered with the subtle power of Fariha Pervez and are accompanied by variations provided by none other than the Qawwal himself – Muazzam Ali Khan. Bringing to the mix the jazz and reggae feels of Western instrumentation is the Serbian House Band alongside a Brass Section that creates a tune that’s got a unique groovy quality. Adding a layer of melancholy while on the search for the Jogi is a String Orchestra from Serbia that creates the feeling of longing in the face of all the worldly liveliness. Tying up the beat is our very own Dhol group faintly providing the essential Punjabi Folk element.
