Devotional Sufi Music

I've always been hooked to devotional sufi music.

Most of this genre that I have heard is from Hindi films. One of the early songs that comes to my mind is the one sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in 'Kacche Dhaage' - 'Is shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna'.

Some other favorites are 'Aaya tere dar par deewana' from 'Veer Zaara' and songs from 'Bose-the forgotten hero' and 'Maqbool' - Vishal Bharadwaj's interpretation of Macbeth.

A more recent favorite is 'Khwaja mere khwaja' from 'Jodhaa-Akbar'.

I wish I could get digital versions of all these songs. Unfortunately I do not have many of them. I've heard them while watching the films and the audio CDs are not available any more.

Can anyone help?

I don't know if I should tell you this Kamal because you may not have any free time once you know. YouTube has an astounding number of music videos including Khwaja Mere Khwaja

Can you embed videos on your blog? Maybe video of the week?
