Can't listen to anything that's not a qawwali these days. Nusrat, Sabri, Wadali brothers... sub-o-shaam. If I'd been 18 and stupid right this moment, I'd be packing to run away and join a Qawwali group.
On loop as I write is Rahman's Al maddath maula. A leetle cluttered towards the end, but I love love this song. Male voices raised in devotion.... oooh goosebumpy stuff.
Rahman was reportedly unhappy with the way this song was filmed in Mangal Pandey, but I couldn't see why they had it in the first place. Almost as if they found this in the bank and said, 'ok chalo, qawwali hai, ek item ho jaata.' Not good.
