Asia Beats: Adi and Suhail: “Jogiya”

21 Jan

I like this “Qalandar” number, but what really hooked me on these guys was a piece called Jogiya,” which unfortunately is not on YouTube and the BBC won’t let us have, so you’ll have to watch it at their site: Asia Beats: Adi and Suhail.  The ghazal-thumri-like delicacy and eroticism, the qawwali intensity and the keyboard all in one funky mess really blew me away.  And what’s up with that gorgeous black-on-black sherwani on Suhail in the “Jogiya” video.
