-4/? of Mythology-inspired Songs:
Song: Irfan - Simurgh
Mythology connection: In Persian mythology and folklore, the Simurgh (also known as Angha) was an enormous, benevolent flying creature. She was said to be peacock-like in body, with the head of a dog (or sometimes human). She was an enemy of snakes and preferred to live near water. Legends say she was very old, so old that she had seen the world destructed and born again three times. She had healing and purifying powers and would serve as a messenger between earth and the sky. In Sufi mysticism she is also sometimes a metaphor for God.
