Two years ago Hemant Kumar Tholappa (from Muziboo days) introduced me this song. I liked it very much but I was not sure if I could sing it too but we both sang and recorded a cover which Hemant shared on his profile. While recording my parts I sang the entire song too. Originally this song was sung by three singers, Rafi, Manna Dey and Sadat Khan. Quite an intriguing song with quite different alaaps but they all come from how Qawwali's are sung in a typical style. Here I am presenting my cover in a solo version and took opportunity to add some subtle harmonium and hand claps to this MG track. Hope Hemant joins this site and reconnect and I hope friends enjoy this song in my cover.
