Bulleh Shah's kaafi, Ghungat, is one of the band's most popular tunes and here the live version, charges out setting the stage for a tour de force of the band's virtuosity.
Utilising Bulleh Shah's (1680-1757) sufiana kalam from the 18th century, 'Ghungat' is the musical rendition of an anticipation and realisation of one's true love or purpose in life.

Lyrics


Ghunghat ohley na luk sajna
Main mushtaq dedar de haan
Hide not behind the veil, my love,
I long to have a glimpse of you.


Terey bajho dewani hoyi
Tokaan kardey lok sbhoi
Jeker yaar karey diljoi
Taan faryaad pukaar de haan
Without my love, I feel desolate,
People around me mock my helplessness.
He should come and lift up my spirits,
This alone remains my plea,
-
Ghunghat ohley na luk sajna
Main mushtaq dedar de haan
Hide not behind the veil, my love,
I long to have a glimpse of you.

Muft mukandi jandi bandi
Mil mahi jind aweien jandi
Eik dam hijar nahi main sahndi
Bulbul main gulzar de haan
Your slave is being auctioned free
Come my love and rescue me
No longer can I perch elsewhere
I am the Bulbul of your tree
-
Ghunghat ohley na luk sajna
Main mushtaq dedar de haan
Hide not behind the veil, my love,
I long to have a glimpse of you.

Bulleh Shah owh kon utam tera yaar
Ows dey hath Quraan hey owsey gul zanaar
Bulleh! Who is He?
A strange type of friend!
He has the Quran in his hand
And in the same the holy thread

Ghunghat ohley na luk sajna
Main mushtaq dedar de haan
Hide not behind the veil, my love,
I long to have a glimpse of you.
