Description

In Sufi Rhythms a selection of the compositions of the Sufi poets of the Punjab have been rendered in free verse. They presented different linguistic registers. To begin with were the steady rhythms of Baba Farid and Sultan Bahu.

They were followed by the extremely sophisticated diction and concepts of Shah Hussain. The fourth register was that of Bulleh Shah with his rustic, down to earth, very popular kore. With Laeeq Babree the tone and texture changed radically.

The voice of Babree is pure and sublime, deeply rooted in Sufi metaphysics no doubt but there is also a very prominent streak of Post-modern consciousness.
