Sound of Sufis: Folk Concert by Sakur Khan & Group
Sakur Khan fondly likes to be known as a Sufi Singer and says that the colour white is symbolic of Sufism, as it is the colour of purity and the ‘ibaadat’ of Allah.
Words are less to describe the sheer poetry and the music which echoes in the sand dunes of Khuri of Rajasthan from where this group hails.
Bulle Shah is Sakur Khan’s favorite poet and he uses Bulle Shah’s Verse in his songs quite often.
It is an intimate affair with the artists, creating a magical aura of seeking and celebrating the divine.
The aim is to experience the poetic old world charm of traditional Sufi musical gatherings with renewed fervor.
