If Abida Parveen is really a cult, it is because this tremendous artist offers herself to her audience, like noone. This way to serve the Kalam (the Verb) of the Sufi saints is often compared to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Sometimes staying on a low note, sometimes producing sounds of an extraordinary virtuosity, she is always transformed by energy, seemingly inspired by He of whom she sings the praises in ecstatic communion with her audience. One for her dazzling voice and her musical imagination allied with a totally feminine, delicate statement to the divine Beloved.
