New Video Release – Ginan By Nargis Balolia

VideoRelease has just released Nargis Balolia’s beautiful rendition of “Utth Baetth Re Keeyaa Sotaa” in a video format with running lyrics and translations.

The melodious ginan, composed by Sayyed Imaam Shaah in the 15th Century, is a reminder to momins (followers) about the benefits of early morning prayers. has used the Hunza (Northern Pakistan) night sky as a backdrop for this video with stunning long exposure imagery and time lapse video of our Milky Way Galaxy. Hunza is one of the best places in the world to observe the night sky because of its remoteness and lack of light pollution of the sky from big city lights.

The ginan video is a very special tribute to our volunteers and Jamati members throughout the world who provide transportation and ride sharing services for early morning prayers.
