Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sings Rumi in Persian (Farsi Kalam)

The reigning King of Sufi Qawwali Music
 Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

I'm a huge fan of late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and his Qawwali renditions of Rumi's poems in Farsi below are simply priceless."Nusrat’s music invites us to eavesdrop on a man communing with his God, ever so eloquently. He makes the act of singing a passionate offering to God. But we do not merely eavesdrop. The deepest part of Nusrat’s magic lies in the fact that he is able to bring our hearts to resonate with the music, so deeply, that we ourselves become full partners in that offering. He sings to God, and by listening, we also sing to God.. Nusrat's voice is truly from heaven."

Nusrat Fateh Ali Kha sings Rumi's poem in Farsi (part2)

No I am not roaming aimlessly
around the streets and bazaar
I am a lover in search of his Beloved.
God have mercy on Maulana Rumi
I'm a wrongdoer and a sinner.
Sometimes laughing and sometimes crying
Sometimes falling and sometimes rising
I am roaming around
Like a wandering Sufi dervish
In search of my Beloved...
Rumi ~ my translation
