Passionate and ecstatic, spiritual and entrancing, Sufi music acts as a uniquely valuable bridge between the East and West reflecting the most accessible, liberal and pluralistic aspects of Islam. Now, just close your eyes and picture a sky buttered with golden hues of the setting sun, giving way to the bright illumination of stars, and the majestic Qutub Minar standing tall in the background, with the melodic Kun Faya Kun permeating your ears. Can you imagine a more beautiful winter evening? Because, I can't!
