World Music From Pakistan - Sufis of Sind - Doc

http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/10423 for full video. Whatever you have in mind forget it; whatever you have in hand give it away; whatever happens to you, don't avoid it." Abou Said Ibn Abi'l Khair DVD Available at: http://www.longtailnet.com/3127 This DVD includes a documentary about the Sind region in southern Pakistan and its wonderful musical heritage. It includes a concert that features Sohrab Fakir, who was widely recognized as the greatest living Sindhi folk singer. The video presents the documentary "The Mystical Ways of Sind" The Sind region encompasses the lower Indus valley and a part of the Thar desert in southern Pakistan. This desolate country with a fearful reputation is one of the birthplaces of civilization and a center for the invention of agriculture. As we discover places of worship and shrines where one can still see the mark of the prime post-hegira mystics, we search for Sorab Fakir, the red bearded cantor. This region is where the people still worship the great Sufi poet Shah Abdul Lateef, who expressed so well the spirit of the human soul. Here, a loving woman is a symbol of the soul, restlessly searching for the eternal beloved. The musicians are virtuosi, their instruments fabulous and their music energetic and haunting.
