Ginan: Ab teri mohobat laagi (instrumental) on the Erhu

Jazreel Luar gives us an elegant rendition of a few verses of Pir Shams Sabzwari’s popular ginan Ab Teri Mahobat Laagi (O My Lord! Now I Am In Love With You) on erhu. The erhu is a traditional two-stringed bowed musical instrument sometimes known in the Western world as the Chinese violin.
