Song Info

Opening up a trove of Sufi Folk is Asad Abbas’ ‘Mahi Gal’. Based on the raag Miyan Ki Malhar, the song is an old folk melody that Asad grew up hearing in his home given that Eastern Classical music was something he had inherited in his lineage. He feels that while the melody has always been striking, it’s within the lyrics that the song finds its mettle. The song’s dreamscape composition finds a tale at play in what could be reminiscent of folklore storytelling. The song begins with an old, raw feel of a yearning to connect with the object of one’s Love. In this dream like state, the song trails into a change of tone and witnesses glimpses of the other side, as if Light at the end of the tunnel, culminating into a transition of raag by Fariha Pervez into a Tarana. And with this newfound reassurance, the song’s tone is returned to the original raag but uplifted, musically tipping into an upbeat bluesy feel with instrumental elements such as the Oud – demonstrating the passage of time over such an experience. A song with a theatrical trace, ‘Mahi Gal’ is one of intuition, reaching out to connect with the reality of a lucid dream and waking up to a new state of Truth.
