‘Tajdar-i-Haram’ has been etched in histories memory as a qawwali that’s resonated through the world – encapsulating the love for the Prophet. It appears on Coke Studio in an intoxicating performance by Atif Aslam that grips the audience with the lingering sound of the Tabla played by Babar Ali Khanna and with the dominating rhythm provided by Arsalan Rabbani on the Harmonium. Singing in Urdu, Persian and Arabic – Atif Aslam and the ‘Humnawa’ perform a soul-fuelled rendition of a classic keeping the genre as organic as it once used to be; and yet creating an almost hypnotic trance that will engulf the listener by its sheer magnitude.
Year of Release: 2015
