Written by legendary 18th Century Sindhi poet, Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, Pere Pavandi Saan tells the story of Sindhi folk heroin Sassi, who searches for her lost lover, Pannu, after he was taken away from her during their wedding night. Sassi is from Bhambore where she married Pannu - a prince from Baluchistan. After the wedding celebrations Pannu's brothers intoxicated him and took him back to Baluchistan while Sassi was asleep.
When Sassi found out Pannu was gone she ran barefoot, across deserts to get to Ketch Makran in Baluchistan and find him. The song illustrates Sassi's anguish and her frantic search for her lost love after she wakes up and finds him gone. In the chorus of the song Sassi is begging Pannu's brothers to let him stay with her in Bhambore for one night.
After a long journey when she is nearing his kingdom in Baluchistan, tired, frantic and distressed, she asked God to protect her from the evils she met on her journey. God answered her prayers, the land shook and she was buried beneath.
Pannu woke up to find out he was back in his own land and, like Sassui, he ran out in search of his lost love. Pannu prayed to God to protect him and help him and God gave him the same fate as Sassi. The husband and wife still lie buried together.
Shah Latif's poetry are the words of Sassi - her prayers and her longing - as she goes on her search to find Pannu. Typical in Sufi philosophy, the story is symbolic of a person's search for God, unity with the divine and the idea of eternal love.
Tahir Mithu wanted to sing this song to present the richness of Sindhi language, culture and literary heritage.
Traditionally sung as a folk song, the Coke Studio version fuses a modern funk sound to give a new life to a timeless classic.
