Sufi rock is folk music combining the classical Islamic Sufi traditions with rock music. It started in the early 1990s and was popular in the late 1990s. The term was coined by Nadeem F Paracha who pioneered the fusion of conventional rock music with folk Sufi music plus the imagery. He coined the term in 1993. The music is used to define the Pakistani band Junoon.
The Sufi poets like Hafez Shah, Abdul, Latif, Bhitai, Bulleh shah, and Waris shah etc made a remarkable basis of Sufi poetry. It is sung in many languages like Urdu, Pashto, Punjabi, Sindhi, Persian, and Turkish.
