When you talk about Sufi romantic songs, one name often comes up more often than the others, Satinder Sartaaj. And while all the other musical artists are busy giving us party hits, Satinder Sartaaj continues to deliver soulful tracks and this Tune in Tuesdays, we are celebrating his final track, ‘Raseed’ from his album Seasons Of Sartaaj.
Satinder Sartaaj comes from Bajrawar, in Hoshiarpur district of Punjab, India and has a degree in Music from the Government College of Hoshiarpur. He did both M.Phil and Ph.D. in Sufi music. Later, he also took a Diploma in Persian (Farsi) language to understand Sufi poetry in depth.
He started performing when he was in the third grade and is now an internationally known singer, best known for his Punjabi-Sufi performances. His debut song in the industry was ‘Umran De Sathi’ after which he released his first, commercial album ‘Sartaaj’ in 2010. Each of his songs is poetic and imparts wisdom about life and feelings, which is why fans tend to relate and love them. He captures his audience and keeps them rooted to the spot with his beautiful lyrics and voice, rejuvenating their souls and minds.
Apart from his successful musical career, Sartaaj has also performed in an American film ‘The Black Prince’, story-based on Maharaja Duleep Singh. This movie further increased his visibility and reflected that he truly is a man of many talents.
‘Raseed’ is a magical Sufi love song that will calm and relax your mood. This is the last song from the album of #SeasonsOfSartaaj, a presentation of Saga Music. A heart touching song by #SatinderSartaj in which music is given by the versatile director Jatinder Shah and lyrics penned down by Satinder Sartaaj himself, speaks on the philosophy that your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek & find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. One must learn to find love in inner selves and will always be amazed if they sacrifice themselves to God.
With this video Sunny Dhinsey, the writer of the story, cinematographer, editor, and director has sure notched up the expectations of his fans with the sights and sounds of the Arabian lands.
