O Lord, Pay Heed to my Appeal
Every once in a while a song comes along that embeds itself in every part of your consciousness. @venkatananth tweeted this superb rendition of “Mori Araj Suno” by Tina Sani on the Pakistani TV show Coke Studio.
Everything comes together so beautifully. The subtle music arrangement, the raaga, Tina’s gritty, soaring voice and the brilliant words, part despair part hope. It reminded me of how my grandfather used to sing. Needless to say the song got me pretty emotional. What to do.
