Pairing songs rooted in classic Sufi poetry with electronic abstraction, the two experimentalists blur lines between cultures and eras in a moving tribute to the multiplicity of identity. Singer, songwriter and author Ali Sethi had been entranced by Jaar’s music long before they began collaborating.

Sethi is best known globally for his attempts to revive the ghazal, an ancient poetic form that was taken by Sufi mystics from the Arab world to Persia and throughout the Indian subcontinent, where it captivated the royal court. It’s been unfashionable in the last few decades, a mannered style associated with decadence, and Sethi offers it a new lease of life through his playfully revisionist covers and renditions. ‘Intiha’ illustrates what’s possible when you reconfigure centuries-old traditions into a porous and borderless present. - Other People
