British singer Deen JanJua released his fourth single on 20th August amid extensive media and fan frenzy. After the phenomenal success of his previous singles ‘Chittyan’ and ‘Nakreh Valiyeh, Deen is back with his brand new single ‘Ali Ali’ that was released on Eid.
Deen’s single ‘Ali Ali’ will be followed by his debut album set to be released in early 2013. Music to the eagerly-anticpated album has been crafter by master musician Ji-MADZ.
Talking about his new track ‘Ali Ali’, Deen Janjua says: “During the collaboration of this song I found myself researching the genre of Qawwali; a musical tradition that originated more than 700 years ago
driven by Sufi teachings.
“It is an invention of the great musical artist, scholar, poet and spiritual Sufi, the legend Hazrat Amir Khusro. He alone was able to master the balance of music, poetry, and Islam, whose work has been a source of inspiration for many artists such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
“Qawwali to date is still today a form of music that is so pure and innocent, that I found myself initially hesitant to undertake. It pays homage to the lives of those who lived to worship and please God alone, they spread the message of peace to the Indian subcontinent by achieving closeness with God
by love and abstinence from worldly materialism. This song is my humble tribute to all those individuals who in this day and age place peace, unity and love above all”
The singer ends by saying: “I want to take time out, just to thank everyone who has helped
me progress in music, words cannot express how humbled I am for all your
support. Thank you”
‘Ali Ali’ is available to download from iTunes now.
