Abida Parveen enthralls audience at Delhi Sufi Festival
Abida Parveen enthralled the audience with her famous rendition “Lal meri pat rakhiyo bhala jhoole laalan” at end of Jahan-e-Khusrau World Sufi Music Festival here.
“In Sufism there are no barriers, mine or yours, old and new. It belongs to all and connects hearts and souls. Its power unites the singer and listener in a divine communion with the creator” said Parveen who has been participating in the festival since its inception nine years ago.
She said the event is essentially about spreading the message of Sufism which believes in no border and religion.
“Jahan-e-Khusrau is a spiritual call which we all share and join each year to further message of humanism and brotherhood across the world,” said Parveen, who sings in many languages including Urdu, Sindhi, Seraiki, Punjabi & Persian.
“The festival is unique because it has no nationality or religion and is sacred to all of us,” she added.
