Sufi music is huge in North India and in Pakistan but that popularity has not percolated down south.
I love how how Sufi music allows that deep, connection with the Almighty and the ecstasy that comes with being one-to-one with Him.
Shabnam, who recently completed her post-graduate degree in music, has now turned her attention to Sufi music.
Music is what keeps singer Shabnam Riyaz going even now, 21 years later, as she gears up for a lecture-demonstration on Sufi music in the city, today.
When I was looking around for a research topic, I found that there was not much information available on Sufi music, its origins, its soul.
