The most beautiful rendering of a qawwali I've yet to hear

The Wadali Brothers have made several recordings of the Sufi love song Tu Mane Ya Na Mane but this one, for Coke Studio, is a spell of enchantment woven of inspired instrumental accompaniment and two voices that have been singing together for a half century.

If you don't want the sponsor's theme after the song to spoil any of the mood, stop the recording at the 9:52 minute mark.
