Imamat Day Song: ‘Mowla Mera Ishk Tu’ | By composer, music producer Karim Barolia (@KarimBarolia) |@TheIsmaili

“It was not project for me. It was more of a spiritual journey for everyone who was part of it. The minute I started working on it, everything just magically worked out. Things were being taken care of. I did not worry about the melody or the composition. It just came to me naturally. I think it was a blessing! In fact, the creation process went so smoothly that I was ready with the composition in the first three days,” says Karim Barolia
