About the CD
Amir Khusrau

Amir Khusrau was a Turk, who wrote poetry in Persian as well as what he called Hindvi, a combination of local Bhojpuri and Persian (developed by him), which later evolved into Hindi and Urdu. It is said that his grandmother suggested to him that the sweetness in Bhojpuri can never be paralled by the more "elite" Khadi Boli. Amir Khusrau's poetry in Hindvi remains a masterpiece and is one of the simplest to understand.

The man who gave us the sitar, he is often regarded as the father of modern north Indian music giving it some of the most common music forms like Qawwali and Khayal. Qawwali is supposed to have originated from Bhajans (The great Sufi Nizamuddin Auliya was Khusrau's spiritual guide) and Khayal from Qawwali. Even today 700 years after his demise, all Urs festivals start with a Qawwali of Amir Khusrau. Many of his poems are used in ghazals.
