18 August 2017 | 8:05 min

With the emblematic Sufi rock sound that shook South Asia, Sayonee marks the debut of Salman Ahmad as a music director and featured artist on Coke Studio. The resonant depth of Ali Noor’s voice juxtaposed with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s classically-nurtured, incredible range makes for a behemoth line-up that is bespeckled with nostalgia. Complete with the iconic bassline that defined a generation of Pakistani music, the song is given a new life with the decadence of the rubab, magical inserts of the flute and a hard-hitting percussive body. Filled with musical surprises, Salman Ahmad leads his bespoke ensemble through a journey of crescendos, jugalbandis and spirituality.

    har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
    Cling to your Lord’s name at every moment and with each breath

    har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
    Cling to your Lord’s name at every moment and with each breath

    ta toon asthar theewen

    har dam naam sambhaal saaeen da
    Cling to your Lord’s name at every moment and with each breath

    ta toon asthar theewen
    You may thus become steadfast and firm

    kahwe husain faqeer saaeen da
    Husain, God’s lowly servant, says

    main naaheen bas toon
    There is no me, only You!
