Qawwali is the most dynamic sufi devotional music of the Indian Subcontinent. It is of no surprise that qawwali is one of the most appealing genres of world music, continuing to gain an increasing amount of international renown.
Tahir Faridi Qawwali & his ensembles are a leading representation of this music worldwide. Through their consistent, high-profile appearances in Pakistan and abroad they have captured the hearts of thousands. The intensity of their stage performance, with its smooth melodic overtures, fierce leaps of vocal passion, heavy rhythmic grooves & rich vocal choruses have captivated audiences in such diverse countries as Pakistan, India, Africa, Thailand, Europe, Indonesia, the USA and beyond.
After an enlivening winter of qawwali events abroad at such prominent places as the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Urs Pak Pattan (Pakistan’s largest qawwali event), New Delhi (India), Indonesia & Australia, the members of Fanna-Fi-Allah reunite in California for their 15th annual American summer tour. Initiated into the lineage of the iconic qawwali great, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, this ensemble continues to develop the appreciation for Pakistan’s great sufi tradition in the West.
