Sain Zahoor


My three-year-old son won’t go to bed until he has watched ‘Dinga-Dinga Man’, aka the magnificent Sain Zahoor, as seen on William Dalrymple’s equally marvellous DVD Sufi Soul: The Mystic Music of Islam (2008). I was idly reading the Guardian yesterday when I noticed that Zahoor is playing at the University of Bradford tomorrow, so I urge anyone who can to go and see him. You can sample a little of the Magical Voice here.

Now all I need to do is get hold of a three-stringed ektara and I can keep my son amused myself...
