Song Info

This Season Abrar-ul-Haq presents a composition rooted in folk rhythm which when brought onto the Western scale of music finds itself comfortably placed in shades of Jazz and Funk. The overall song demonstrates conflicting sentiments in that the wordings express a prayer in the name of self-actualization bordering between happy musical accents and the eternally present sad undertone. Lyrically the song as written by Abrar speaks of inner growth and the process accompanied on the journey within beginning with Intent. As the song progresses, he uses verses by Sufi poets to symbolize the link between this world and the next asking what it really is that we carry with us into the oblivion. Thematically, the verses speak of the gift of true self-actualization lying in the idea of self-negation. The song is one that is personal to Abrar as he feels it demonstrates his relationship with God, the world and his own existence. Musically, the song’s conflicting tones find a form of whimsical harmony between the instrumental elements by the Serbian House Band alongside the Dhol beat of the Dhol Group and the percussive accents of Morocco while the Serbian String Orchestra, in true subtlety, bring the underlying melancholy of the song to the foreground all the while staying true to the scale presenting a rich mix of fusion. read more
