Shirdiwale Sai Baba the famous song

This is the famous song called Shirdi wale Sai Baba from the movie Amar Akbar Anthony, a hindi super hit movie of 70's . Mohammed Rafi sang the beautiful song for Rishi Kapoor. The music was written by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

What makes the song more pleasant besides sung by a very good singer and music composed by famous duo is that the song is in the form of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Chishti Sufis of the Indian Subcontinent. Qawwalis, the vibrant and devotional songs, are sung at most Sufi shrines across India and Pakistan.
