Raza Khan is Sufi singer, musician and composer who lives a simple life despite his musical genius. Hewas born in Batala (Punjab) and started learning music at the age of 7 under Ustad Shafqat Ali Khan,who belongs to Sham Chourasi Gharana, a five hundred year old musical tradition from Hoshiarpur,Punjab (a state in northern India). Raza Khan is also affiliated to the Mausiki Gharana tradition. Hisancestors were related to Tansen, one of the greatest exponents of Hindustani classical music.Raza Khan displays an extraordinary vocal range that parallels the accompaniment of the harmoniumregardless of the upper or lower range it may exceed to. He makes the transition from modular vocals tofalsetto with ease and his vocal style is characterized by long sustains in the upper register. It is this stylethat distinguishes him from other mainstream Sufi artists.

In this album, “Call of the soul”, Khan creates an ambience of devotion through three uniqueSufi Kalams (Songs). Each Kalam differs from the other but ultimately all connect the listener with thesupreme power. His music makes use of instruments such as the Harmonium and Tabla while rhythmicclaps are used as embellishments. The compositions in this album are semi-classical in nature andhave been improvised upon and performed by Raza Khan himself. Raza’s objective is to create his ownvariation of traditional art and he continues to incessantly work towards the same.

1.Nasihatein 

‘Nasihatein’ literally translates to advice and this Sufi piece brings forth certain patterns of behavior suited for an ideal living.  Bade vasoof se duniya fareb deti hai- the world ditches us with a lot of conviction and Bade khaloos se hum etbar kar lete hai- we trust it with a lot of pure heartedness. Dokha devega guroor tenu kade na kade- your beliefs and the pride you place in them shall let you down some time or another. karna chaida hai shor tenu kade na kade- you must raise your voice at one time or another. chad badiyan te neki da khayal kar le- stop doing bad deeds and think about doing some good. rab puchna tenu kade na kade- God will ask you at some instant or another. A classical piece, this composition it is replete with spacetimes of raga renditions. Such potency of poetry needs a depth of rhythm to bring forth its essence and though the lines sung are very few, the duration of the piece and its prosody give the right kind of room for comprehending their multi-layered meanings.

2. Jede Vi Darte

This piece is sung in praise of the almighty and it is said that all those who submit to him attain to the aims of existence. jede we dar te aunde, Shab Bediyan banne londe- all those who come to your door, their boats bank ashore. Mavan di god bharen dukhiyan de naal rave- you bless mothers’ laps with the gift of children and always remain with those who are suffering. Tu tan vichde melda vein, Meri bedi paar laga de- you allow separated souls to meet, please take my boat to the shore too. Existence in Hindu mythology is often referred to as the ocean and ones life as a boat which is constantly rocked by the waves and the storms in the vastness. To reach ashore and not drown midstream is what devotees pray for.

3. Dukh raj raj data nu sunaiye

The fleeting nature of existence and the importance of putting ones faith into the almighty during its crests and troughs are sung of here. Dukh raj raj data nu sunaiye- tell the almighty of all your pains. Nabi rasool sath chad ge ne yara beliya da- all saints die and go away leaving behind their friend and lived ones. Asa we tur jana Bua maar ke sab haveliyan da- even we shall have to go shutting all doors on the palaces. Dukh raj raj dat data nu sunaiye melene vichdana- this meeting and separation shall go on forever Kal kahbren na ral ke kahiye- no one knows what shall happen tomorrow so let us get together and say today Aj data nu dil di kahiye- that we shall tell the lord what lies in our heart today. Jeve manda hai data nu maanaiye- let us do whatever it takes to please him. Mehfila lagayan rehn hamesha- may the company of friends always remain so, Rang chadiya ren hamesha- may they acquire more spirit. Keh data data zindagi langhiye- in taking the name of the almighty we should spend our lives.
