Sufi Rang

One of my favorite Sufi (fusion) compositions that I created in early 2011. Recently mastered  the track again.

The lyrics are as follows:

Lyrics by Hazrat Shah Niaz

Hori hoye rahi hai .. Ahmad jiyo ke dwar
Hazrat Ali ka raang bano hai ..Hasan Husain khilar
Aiyso hori ki dhum machi hai .. chahun or pari hai pukaar
Aiyso anokho chatur khiladi .. raang dinyon sansar
Niaz pyara bhar bhar chhidke .. ek hi raang sahas pichkar

होरी होए रही है अहमद जियो / जिया के द्वार
हज़रत अली का रंग बना है  – हसन हुसैन खिलार
ऐसो होरी की धूम मची है चहुँ ओर  पड़ी है पुकार
ऐसो अनोखो चतुर खिलाडी रंग दीन्हो संसार
नियाज़ पियारा भर भर छिडके एक ही रंग सहस पिचकार

  1. can u tell me , what does the lyrics mean??

    1. Thanks for your message. I can’t find words for an exact translation of the poem but can try to give you the gist of the way I perceive the nuances of this poem.
      “The poet is in a state of ecstasy and feels overwhelmed as if a festival is happening in his heart. (Comparing it to the festival of colors – Holi, where the colorful water drenches everyone into vibrant colors and also equalizes everyone together). The poet/saint/seer feels these festivities all around him and wonders and feels grateful for all this playfulness created by the supreme all around.”
      I hope I could bring you a little closer to how the poet might have felt. God bless you!

  2. i absolutely loved the song. i have always wanted to listen to Sufi sangeets, but didnt knew where to start. I came across your page while randomly browsing on wordpress blogs. Im currently browsing your blog for more songs. ANd I hope you will keep up the good work. I wish you all the success in your life.

    1. Thanks for the kind words friend. I wish you the best in life as well. You can explore the Music page on my blog for a playlist of songs..some of it is Sufi. I personally feel good listening to Sufi compositions by Abida Parveen. You can also explore Youtube for songs by her. Blessings 🙂
