AL FATIHAH and FAREWELL SHARIFAH AINI ...

A LYRICAL LIFE ...
a note for "Kak Pah" 

by azly rahman

a powerful force music is, as if the harmonics and improvizationalism of it tells the story of one's life ...indeed i must also say that music and the love it emanates has a been more powerful a force than religion ... and that even the chants and the mantras and the zikirs are all musical forms as ancient as the first sound of the universe "Ohmm ..." a one-syllabic -harmonics some say upon which Existence begins ...

we are, besides water-based, are music-based as beings that wish to align ourselves with the chakras of the Universe ..

even if and when and if ever we are enslaved as in the 350-year old story of those in the first slave ship from Portugal bound for the "New World" or the Americas, even if our body is chained, we will still be freed by music and the harmonic-kinestheic forces of our Inner Self .. that plays music to liberate, perhaps in sync with the Oceans of Mercy within us ...

If there is a history of one's life conceived differently that the regular method and of chronicling events ... there is the lyrical history of one's life -- a lyrical life. This is what i have at times seen how my life unfolding ... a life and times conceived musically.

and Sharifah Aini's song is such a phase in my life that helped defined who I am and helped trigger beautiful memories of growing up in JB ....

I was once told by a wannabe-Islamic-mullah that "music is haram/prohibited by Islam" and rock music is one especially ... not only was that statement ignored ... but I was annoyed and challenged the pure soul to listen to as much music, Classic Rock especially, and come back to me and tell me if his exposure to the "haram-ness" of rock music has changed his view ... he declined my offer, of course .. not wishing to impurify himself .. maybe in preparation for a jihad in Syria later in his life ... I wouldn't know ...

but rest in peace, Kak Pah ... i will play your songs more often ... -- ar
