Consider yourself introduced to Tanya Wells, a London-based singer/songwriter who dabbles in folk, soul and almost anything in between. Prepare to be blown away by Tanya’s enchanting vocals on her cover of Mun Kunto Maula’ ( a traditional Manqabat Qawwali song), as she croons over a majestic backdrop, of warm tabla, daf drums and a soft guitar pluck.
I heard Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan singing this song with his qawwali party. I found it very moving, and when I found out about the meaning of this qawwali, it became a sure favourite of mine.
The ever adventurous artist is currently recording an album titled The Seed with Brazilain composer and guitarist Paulo Vinícius.
Check out the campaign video for The Seed above and if you would like to donate head to their Indiegogo site here.
This track will linger with you for a long time, mark my words.
