    I was reading one of the topics on the forum today about Qaraami and many of the people thought that qaraami was a love song with a guitar its not the qaraami is a chain of small love poems called belwos and is dictated by the style it is sung in there are around 66 styles of qaraami ranging from xaafuun to rogaal they are always about love for example this small tix

    Sidii geed ku yaal bankii giriyaad
    Goonidu waa wax laygu talagalay

    Like a tree on the giriyaad plain
    to be alone is what i was destined for

    i have heard that sung in both the jowhara luula style and the subcis style a qaraami song would have several different tixs put together another one is

    Haddi aad ubax tahay mid aad u uroo
    Udgoon badan baad ahayn lahayd
    If you were a flower, one with a strong scent
    you would’ve been a fragrant one

    some like the first one i posted sing of loneliness and lost love and some like the second one i posted praise the one love and there are many others
    a qaraami song is genrally sung wth drums and oud a flute and some very lovely clapping but this is not always so it can be sung with just clapping.

    Balwadii baxsatoo baribay qabatee
    Baabuur Ma Ku baadi Doonaa.
