Aaj Rang Hai live in Brisbane - The classic sufi qawwali written by Hazrat Amir Khusro (ra) for his master Khwaja Nizamudin Aulia (ra). This kalam also praises the great lineage of sufi masters from Hazrat Data Ganj Buksh (ra) to Khwaja Ali Ahmad Sabir (ra).
Performed here live at the University of Queensland in Brisbane by Tahir Faridi Qawwal & Party.

A bit of english translation:
Aj Rang Hai
O earthen lamp listen to what I say, tonight is my
meeting with the Beloved, and I will remain awake all night.
Khusrau, on this wedding night, I awakened with my Beloved.  
This body is mine, the heart is of the Beloved, and they are both the same shade now.  
Today there is jubilation, mother, see how colourful it is! In my Beloved's house there is celebration today, see how colourful it is!
I have found the perfect Master: Nizam-ud-din Auliya. I have travelled from land to land and searched for you.
Your colour has captivated me. The world is illuminated, the entire universe is illuminated.   I have never seen such colour anywhere. Now wherever I look, the Beloved is there, with me. Oh beloved, please dye me in yourself. 
Dye me in the colour of the spring, Beloved.  In this courtyard, today there is celebration O mother.
