Indo-Canadian Singer Lends Vocals to Sultans of String’s Sindhi Folk Song: Watch

Indo-Canadian songstress Shweta Subram recently collaborated with Juno Award-winning instrumental group Sultans of String and sitarist Anwar Khurshid on a traditional Sindhi folk song, titled “Parchan Shaal Panhwar,” according to a press release.

A fusion of East meets West, “Parchan Shaal Panhwar” is a Sindhi metaphor that translates to “A Personal Struggle for Freedom.” Subram’s soulful voice wonderfully complements the melodic sounds of the Sultans of String, who are known for combining elements of Spanish flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms and French manouche gypsy jazz. The music video was released May 3.

Chris McKhool, bandleader and violinist of the Toronto-based Sultans of String, contacted Subram after he came across her successful collaboration with the The Piano Guys on their hit “Don’t You Worry Child (Khushnuma).” This upbeat fusion has now crossed over 15 million views online.

“We were very excited when Shweta agreed to lend her vocals to the album. We were looking for a voice that is rustic yet unique, and Shwetas’ vocal performance in this song is absolutely stunning!” exclaimed McKhool in a press release.

A wonderful folk Sindhi song – Peirein Pawandee Saan..

by: Ahmed-Makhdoom, London, U.K.

A wonderful young man from my motherland, an illustrious and brilliant son of Jeejal Sindhrree, Joji Shaikh Saaeen, may Lord reward him for his Sindhyat and Sindhiness, sent me a video of an old nostalgic Sindhi folk song:پيزين پوندي سان چوندي سان Peirein Pawandee Saan..

Beautiful rendition of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s Peirein Pawandee Saan, Chawandee Saan – an immortal and immaculate Sindhi folk song – ably and comfortably sung by Renu Gidoomal and beautifully and decently presented in a dance form by a young Sindhi girl. Thses were the Sindhis, who are not living in their motherland, – they live in India. Still, they have not forgotten their beautiful heritage and what their culture is, traditions, norms, practices, principles and decent ways of life are.

Like a true  Sindhi, Saainni Renu gave a beautiful rendition of ‘peirein pawandee saan,’ that brought age-old memories trickling by, when I used to go to the shrine of  Bhittai Saaeen and listen to the faqeers of the Bhittai darbaar. At one such pilgrimage to the shrine, I was in company of Madam Annemarie Schimmel, according to her, a true “joggiaannee” and “faqeeriyaannee” of SaaIeen Bhitai ghottu. She used to call me ‘Cactus of Thar’ (Thooharr)

On that occasion, too, she asked me, “Thooharr, can you ask faqeer saaeen to sing, ‘peirein pawandee saan, chawandee saan‘?” She was mesmerised by this song and with quivering voice and tears wailing from her eyes she started to sing in whispers along with the noble faqeers. She was a foremost, formidable and famous admirer of Bhittai Saaeen, and used to refer to him as her ‘murshid.’

Sindhi Film for International Film Festival – Be proud to be a Sindhi

You would be glad to know that the feature film “PYAR KARE DIS‘ would be showcased on 15th Oct’09 at Indore in Global Cinema festival in the regional film category (Sindhi). The festival is being organised by Film Federation Of India in collaboration with the Government of Madhya Pradesh.

The Film PYAR KARE DIS is based on the theme of Power of love. The film is produced by an NRI Sindhi Mr. M. Harwani who provided a platform to make a good Sindhi cinema. PYAR KARE DIS is directed by Kamal D. Nathani who has been into direction for more than 2 decades. His first Hindi feature film “THE HOPE” was also internationally acclaimed at various festivals including Emden Festival, Germany, MAMI International Film Festival etc.

Its a great achievement for the Sindhi community as a whole to note that World renowned ghazal master Jagjit Singh has sung a devotional Sindhi song for the first time in his life for this feature film. Famous singers like Shaan, Roop Kumar Rathore and Richa Sharma have also sung sindhi songs for the first time in their careers.

It is my humble request to pass this information to as many Sindhis as possible as this is a matter of pride and a great milestone for Sindhi community in the 60 years of independence.
