Top 10 tracks of Abida Parveen: From Shrine of Sindh to Queen of Sufi Music

Listening to Abida Parveen is a mystical experience of its own. She has been performing Sufi Music and Arfana Kalam for 3 decades now, and the level of reverence she enjoys from her fans in Pakistan and abroad is unparalleled. I had honour to attend her concert at Royal Albert Hall in London in 2006 and recently at South Bank in summer of 2017. It was heart warming to see the way  people flocked just to catch her glimpse and shake hands if they were meeting a saint. She mentioned in an interview with The Guardian that she never considered herself a singer, but a ‘vehicle’ to communicate the message of Sufism do people across the world. Her statement validates itself when you hear her live.

Hailing from small city of Larkana, she begin career from performing at Dargahs and Shrine in Sindh. Once at Pakistan Television (PTV), she quickly became the most renowned female Sufi singer in the world.

Abida Begum has recorded almost 100 albums comprising Sufiana and Arfana Kalam, ghazals and folk music in languages including Urdu, Punjabi, Seraiki and of course her mother tongue Sindhi.
