Artists: Fariha Pervez featuring Muazzam Ali Khan
Song: Jogi
Language: Punjabi

Opening Season 6’s many different flavors and elements, is ‘Jogi’ – a song that brings the funk and groove of Western Brass elements to Qawwali. While open to interpretation, the song talks of connecting with the ever elusive ‘Jogi’, and in this process the underlying theme of recognizing what lies beyond the surface of who we are and connecting with that Source. In what appears to be a whimsical conversation created by the Sufi poet Baba Bulleh Shah, the Qawwali showcases the female perspective of a moment in an imaginary story – the moment when we witness the complete submission to the Love within when in the pursuit of Love’s many worldly manifestations. A story told many times in folklore, it represents an awakening when Love is found as a result of experiencing the Self alongside the contrasting shades of Beauty and Tragedy that accompany such a feeling.

The vocals are delivered with the subtle power of Fariha Pervez and are accompanied by variations provided by none other than the Qawwal himself – Muazzam Ali Khan. Bringing to the mix the jazz and reggae feels of Western instrumentation is the Serbian House Band alongside a Brass Section that creates a tune that’s got a unique groovy quality. Adding a layer of melancholy while on the search for the Jogi is a String Orchestra from Serbia that creates the feeling of longing in the face of all the worldly liveliness. Tying up the beat is our very own Dhol group faintly providing the essential Punjabi Folk element.

Lyrics of Jogi:

نی میں جانا
ni main jaana
I want to go along…

نی میں جانا
ni main jaana
I want to go along…

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

کنّیں مندراں پاکے
kannen mundraan paake
Wearing heavy earrings

کنّیں مندراں پاکے
kannen mundraan paake
Wearing heavy earrings

متّھے تلک لگاکے
matthe tilak lagaake
Adorning my brow with the bridal mark

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

ایہہ جوگی میرے من وچ وسیا
eh jogi mere man wich wasiya
This jogi dwells in my heart

ایہہ جوگی میرا جوڑا کسیا
eh jogi mera jooṛa kasiya
This jogi tightens my hair-knot

سچ آکھاں میں قسم قران ایں
sach aakhaan main kasm quraan en
If I were to swear by the holy book and speak the truth

جوگی میرا دین ایمان اے
jogi mera deen eemaan e
The jogi is my very creed and faith

جوگی میرے نال نال
jogi mere naal naal
The jogi’s always with me

میں جوگی دے نال نال
main jogi de naal naal
And I’m always with the jogi

کوئی کسے دے نال
koi kise de naal
Different people are with different people

کوئی کسے دے نال
koi kise de naal
Other people are with others

تے میں جوگی دے نال نال
te main jogi de naal naal
But for me, there can be no one but the jogi

جوگی میرے نال نال
jogi mere naal naal
The jogi’s always with me

میں جوگی دے نال نال
main jogi de naal naal
And I’m always with the jogi

جدوں دی میں
jadon di main
The moment I…

جدوں دی میں
jadon di main
The moment I…

جدوں دی میں جوگی دی ہوئی
jadon di main jogi di hoi
The moment I became the jogi’s

میں وچ میں نہ رہ گئی کوئی
main wich main na rah gayi koi
Nothing of ‘me’ remained within me

جوگی میرے نال نال
jogi mere naal naal
The jogi’s always with me

میں جوگی دے نال نال
main jogi de naal naal
And I’m always with the jogi

جوگی نال جانا
jogi naal jaana
…go along with the jogi

(sargam)

جوگی نال جانا
jogi naal jaana
…go along with the jogi

جوگی نال جانا
jogi naal jaana
…go along with the jogi

جوگی نال جانا
jogi naal jaana
…go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا
ni main jaana
…go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا
ni main jaana
…go along with the jogi

میں جانا
main jaana
I must go

میں جانا، جانا، جانا
main jaana jaana jaana
I must go, must go, must go

سر پہ ٹوپی تے نیت کھوٹی
sir pih ṭopi te niyat khoṭi
You wear a (prayer) cap on your head, but you harbour ill intent

لینا کی ٹوپی سر پہ دھر کے
lena ki ṭopi sar pih dhar ke
So what good is wearing a cap on your head?

تسبیح پھری پر دل نہ پھریا
tasbeeh phiri par dil nah phirya
You spend your time in recitation over prayer beads, but you don’t feel it in your heart

لینا کی تسبیح ہتھ پھڑکے
laina ki tasbeeh hath phaṛ ke
So what do you get out of holding prayer-beads in your hand?

چلّے کیتے پر ربّ نہ ملیا
chille keete par rabb nah milya
You performed all your rituals, but you didn’t find God

لینا کی چلّیاں وچ وڑ کے
laina ki chilyaan wich waṛ ke
What good will observing such rituals do?

بلّھیا جاگ بنا ددھ نئیں کڑھدا
bulhiya jaag bina dudh naeen kaṛhda
Bulleh Shah, you can’t curdle milk without rennet

بھانویں لال ہووے کڑھ کڑھ کے
bhaanwen laal huwe kaṛh kaṛh ke
Even if you make it turn red through trying

جوگی دے نال نال
jogi de naal naal
Always with the jogi

کنّیں مندراں پاکے
kannen mundraan paake
Wearing heavy earrings

کنّیں مندراں پاکے
kannen mundraan paake
Wearing heavy earrings

متّھے تلک لگاکے
matthe tilak lagaake
Adorning my brow with the bridal mark

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

(sargam)

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi

نی میں جانا جوگی دے نال
ni main jaana jogi de naal
I want to go along with the jogi
