Naga Valli: “Damadam Mast Qalandar”

All this week, the Song of the Day features artists playing at Wobeon Fest, the Austin world music festival taking over Ironwood Hall on Saturday.

Naga Valli is a native of India and an Austin resident who calls her music “Eastern soul.” She splits the difference between East and West on her album Eastern Soul, produced by AJ Vallejo of the Latin rock band Vallejo. Though she writes her own music in English, she also brings a modern interpretation to “Damadam Mast Qalandar,” a centuries-old Sufi devotional song. Download it below and catch Naga Valli on Wobeon Fest’s Stage One at 7:15 pm.
