Join us for a night of Sufi poetry of Punjab, ‘Babey Lok’ with Arieb Azhar accompanied by Waqas Hussain on Sitar, on Thursday, May 24 at 09:30 PM.

Though it can be heard from the lips of every folk balladeer in Punjab and has been featured on every season of Coke Studio, how much do we really know about the Punjabi Sufi poetry of Pakistan?

Starting from Baba Fareed Ganj Shakar of the 12th Century, continuing with Guru Nanak, Shah Hussain, Sultan Bahu, Bulleh Shah, Waris Shah, Khwaja Ghulam Fareed till Mian Muhammad Baksh of the 19th Century, Arieb Azhar introduces and explores the Sufi poetry of Pakistan that has remained as a moral compass and guiding light for the common folk of Punjab through the centuries.

Between reading, translating and interpreting a collection of verses, Arieb Azhar will also perform a selection of Sufi Kalaam on the guitar accompanied by young virtuoso sitar player Waqas Hussain from the illustrious Senia Gharana of music.

Date: Thursday, 24th May 2018
