“Haseebi” is a new Sufi-inspired song from Tajalli Lounge. Haseebi (My Reckoner) is a fusion of traditional qawwali with contemporary world sounds. It involves artists from three continents (Asia, Australia, and North America). “Haseebi” is a prayer, a zikr, and shukar (Thanks) in the praise of the divine, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
