Ganga-Jamni tehzeeb ( गंगा जमुनी तहज़ीब, گنگا جمنی تهزیب, Ganges-Yamuna Culture) is a euphemism for the mutually participatory co-existence of Hindu and Muslim culture of through the fusion of Hindi and Urdu. (Wikepedia) .
First example is a Bhajan sung by Farid Ayaz & group (I wonder if it’s MeeraBai’s) sung in a Qawwali form is an excellent example of that Ganga Jamni Tehzeeb.
It was the first time a Muslim Pakistani singer sang a Hindi Bhajan inside a temple in Montreal, during Kabir Festival in 2008.
Farid Ayaz and entourage never fail to amaze listeners. Farid Ayaz is a magician more than a musician and this passionate rendition is no less than a magic spell…
Not behind in this tradition of cross culture reverence, Shanker Shambhu brothers sang in praise of Allah, Prophet Muhammed and Imam Ali.
They were known to be singing with their souls pouring out in their voices and was hard to miss their reverence to the kalaam, said those who saw them sing live.
One of their master piece is the Mun Kunto Maula, sung by many others but this one has it’s own charm, and best of all, I have been listening to this since I can remember….
These are but two true examples of music beyond beliefs and borders.
