What more to say, it's Abida , Gulzar and Kabir. The songs are introduced by Gulzar and composed by him, which is a nice touch. The songs are made of "Dohas" of Kabir. Sometimes a bit had to understand because it was all written in the 13-14th (?) century. Had to buy a separate book on Kabir with modern translations. But just listening to Abida's voice creates a mystical and pious feeling to only a sufi like her can create. I would recommend this to anyone fan of Abida, Gulzar, Kabir and even fans of Asian/Hindustani music, Ghazals etc.

Go and buy this!!!!! You will love it

I heard her for the first time through some clips on youtube. I then purchased her first CD and find that her voice is truly divine. It does have a rare sufi quality to it where the meaning of the verses sink into you with that exceptional delivery. I was gifted this CD and just like Gulzar says on the CD. Its like getting intoxicated twice once by the verses of Kabir and second by the voice and rendition by Abida. very good choice if you like Abida. If you are new and know Kabir's bhajans then a very good choice also. Others wanting an intro to Abida can be a very good start, As her bulle sha renditions are more in a complex dialect. this is in very simple Hindi with a very good matching music score. enjoyed it. Could have had more of Kabirs works included.

simply beautiful. Amazing collection. brings chills in your body. Like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan I also do not see any end to the addition of collection. The recording is very good. It is worth a buy.

If you love Saint Kabir and Abida's voice then you should definitely listen to this wonderful album that has heartfelt renditions and nice commentary by Gulzar.

This is a splendid combination - the direction of Gulzar, the voice of Abida and the poetry of Kabir. Abida's voice brings out the depths of Kabir's poetry in a manner reminiscent of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's devotional ecstasies. Kabir was a humanist poet who spread the message of love, sharing and belonging among his followers.
