Khwajababa - Shantanu moitra feat Bonnie Chakravarty & Pranav Biswas, Coke Studio @ MTV Season 2



A long time ago, in Bengal and the regions around, there were two sects that existed. The Mahawats believed in celebrations through song & dance and idol-worship; and the Shariyats believed that prayer through song & dance was disrespectful. Shantanu was intrigued by this rift and decided to make this theme a part of his set.

This song was suggested by Bonnie Chakravarthy's as Shantanu wanted to do something really traditional, about a side of Bengal that people had forgotten. Bonnie sings the song Baul-style which sets the perfect tone for its treatment & arrangement.

Meaning:

A beautiful traditional sufi praise for the workings of a great Sufi Saint, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty. A spiritual healer, Khwaja Baba was known for prayers through his spiritual songs and soulful music. He being an Enlightened Soul used these lyrical strings to pray and connect to the Almighty.
Song mentions a very touching conversation between an elder Peer and Khwaja. Peer enquires about Khwaja's frail state of the body, Khwaja beautifully responds by explaining that the love of The Almighty keeps his soul satiated, and thus he loses track of time.
Song moves forward to explain the workings of The Almighty...as to how he appoints Peers, to be his representatives on earth. How they uphold the light of his eternal truth and spread his messages to the earthly beings and how these enlightened souls beautifully connect heaven and earth, sacrificing their entire lives for the well being of humanity.
Khwaja reiterates the fact that, his songs are intoxication of divine love...and if this true love is not understood and pursued, life becomes an uphill task.

Author tamalster (2 years)
The Baul's of Bengal are Pir's or Fakirs. Heavily influenced by Bhatiyali ,
which are sons of Majhi's and also from Hindu Kirtan and Sufi. Baul songs
often speak of Krishna and in the same breath will speak of Khwaja and
Allah. So its pretty difficult to put a finger on specifics in this genre.
Is one big original melting pot of fusion. The best way to understand Baul,
is simply enjoy it!

Author Srimon Chatterjee (1 year)
Pathetic rendition of a wonderful song :(

Author Jayant Parashar (2 years)
This comes from the Baul Fakir foolk music of Bengal. Baul Fakirs are also
Sufi and so this too is sufi music.Expand your knowledge and get out of the
bollywood defined sound that they call 'sufi' .
