Faqeer Nimaana Interpreting the Mystic Poetry of Shah Hussain.

A Music and Dance Presentation by Sanjukta Wagh, Radhika Sood Nayak, Hitesh Dhutia & Vinayak Netke.

Nimaana means ego-less. Shah Hussain (1538-1599), the irreverent faqeer believed that grace and disgrace walk hand in hand. Heedless of societal norms, with "passion as his walking stick", he set out on a path of self-annihilation as liberation, and union with the divine. The Sufi poet is regarded as a pioneer of the kafi form of Punjabi poetry, in which he chose to use symbols from the day-to-day life of a weaver, making it most appealing to a wider section of the society. Sanjukta Wagh, Radhika Sood Nayak, Hitesh Dhutia and Vinayak Netke are trained in Kathak, Hindustani music, guitar, and tabla, respectively. In this presentation, they interpret Shah Hussain’s poetry through music and dance. They explore motifs, metaphors, and moods in rarely performed kafis of Shah Hussain.
