Historical Recordings of Mukhi Allidina Jamal’s Ismaili Songs

Historical Recordings of Mukhi Allidina Jamal’s Ismaili SongsThe songs were composed and sung by the iconic Tanzanian personality, Allidina Jamal, who was the Mukhi of Dar-es-Salaam’s Upanga Ismaili Jamatkhana during the 1960′s. Before assuming the post as Mukhi, he would be regularly called upon to recite verses from Pir Hasan Kabirdin’s composition “Anant Akhado” to the delight of the Jamat. The few verses that he sung from this monumental composition before the first Dua provided immense inspiration to everyone in attendance, setting the stage and religious fervour for the prayers that followed.

  1. In the SAMAP website, the name of the composer is “Allidina Jamal Walji Luvungivalla”. It should read Allidina Jamal Jivraj of Dar es salaam.
