Sufi music fest live on Alpha Punjabi, ETC Punjabi

MUMBAI: Regional channel Alpha TV Punjabi and music channel ETC Punjabi are bringing together one of the biggest festivals of Sufi Music called Shaan-e-sufi at Kalagram, Chandigarh.

This show will be held at Kalagram, Manimajra, Chandigarh on 27 and 28 August from 6:30 pm onwards and will be telecast live, simultaneously on both the channels.

Shaan-e-sufi will bring for the viewers performance of some of the best exponents of Punjabi Sufi music like the famous Hans Raj Hans, Wadali Brothers, Barkat Sidhu (winner of ETC music award 2004 for best Sufi male vocalist), Zila Khan (daughter of Ustad Vilayat Khan) and Master Saleem, says an official release.

During the two unforgettable evenings with these masters of Sufi music, viewers will get to see Wadali Brothers performing some of their greatest hits including Manee Yaanee and Heer Raanjha along with songs from their Punjabi music albums. Barkat Siddhu and Hans Raj Hans will perform traditional Sufi songs. Viewers will also get to see Zila Khan performing LIVE after a very long gap. She is daughter of internationally acclaimed Sitar maestro Ustad Wilayat Khan and is every bit as melodious as her namesake, added the release.

According to ETC channel Punjabi business head Rabinder Narayan, "Even in today's world where Punjabi music is mostly identified with pop culture, authentic Sufi music has lost none of its evergreen charm. It continues to have its ardent fan following."

VP programming Rajiee M. Shinde adds, "Punjab is a huge market for music. Alpha Punjabi along with ETC Punjabi provides the biggest platform for Punjabi Music. Our musical shows are not only the biggest in terms of attendance but also the most watched in India as well as all over the world."
