Sufism is one of the personifications of religious harmony and tolerance that has long existed in the Indian subcontinent. Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians have offered obeisance at Dargahs and have worshipped side by side at Sufi shrines for centuries. The lyrics are always in praise of the almighty – the frequent use of name of God is only indicative that these are devotional musical compositions, rather than the domain of any one community or religious identity.
|Jyoti Nooran is amazing. What a singing voice she is blessed with. How lovely she appears when she sings. There is her great grandmother Nooran in her genes.Jyoti has two things which none of her contemporaries has - the clarity of diction and the way she imbues it with such self-assured yet gentle sense of timing. The tonal quality of Jyoti Nooran reminds one of the quintessential Mirasi voice that only Doaba can produce.Es nu kehnde ne "buland" awaaz- so refreshing, as it is so uncommon these days! |
