Some good vibes

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything – Plato.

Met this man singing a peace of sufi poetry by Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, a 16th century sufi saint from Sindh region, now in Pakistan. The man was fully indulged in musical ritual at shirne of Shah Abdul, devotees perform this ritual 24/7 and it never stops.
