“Aa bhi jaa. Tujhse Pyaar karte hai. Yeh woh gunaah hai jo baar baar karte hai.”
To add a sufi element to Venky’s Nexus 2014, Sabari Brothers took the stage during day two of the fest. The event originally scheduled for 6 p.m., started at around 7: 30 p.m. at the college’s auditorium foyer. The evening started with a felicitation of the guest performers by the college principal, Dr. P. Hemalatha Reddy. She also felicitated the chief guest for the day, Dr. Suchitra Gupta, Deputy Dean of Students’ Welfare, Delhi University.
The Sufi legends started with the famous Chaap Tilak, moving on to a Coke Studio rendition of Humein toh loot liya and popular Bollywood number Tumse Milke Dilka hai jo haal.
With the audience seated on the floor and an energetic ambience, the entire atmosphere reeked of the Qawwali mood. The combination of music and shayari along with a crowd that reciprocated with claps and dance, were the highlights of the evening. Despite the rain and the performance by Junkyard Groove that was taking place simultaneously, the energy of the sufi night remained undeterred.
We leave you with one of the many shers that came up during the evening:
“Tujhe aankhon mein basaa lunga kajal ki tarah, tu mujhe dhoondti reh jayegi pagal ki tarah.”
