Ancient Devotional Music with Tahir Qawwal

 
 
 

FROM INDIA & PAKISTAN TO THE WIDER WORLD

Tahir Qawwal began his journey into music and mysticism in the Indian subcontinent at a young age. Since his late teens, he has delved deeply into learning with the classical sufi Qawwali grand masters of India and Pakistan. Tahir tours all over the world with his ensembles Fanna-fi-Allah, Tahir Faridi Australia & Sufi Soul Sangeet, and offers teaching workshops in virtually every country.

Qawwali is a passionate devotional practice in which the fire of divine love (ishq) is ecstatically expressed through the mystical verses of Sufi poets, sung in Urdu, Farsi, Hindi and Punjabi. The origins of Qawwali music date back about a thousand years to the first Sufi mystics who came to India. Qawwali has evolved into an immense art form spanning over hundreds of years of poets, languages & musical evolutions. 

Tahir invites you to connect deeply with this tradition and to discover a profound relationship with your voice. To explore this tradition, join us at our live concerts, and music workshops. If you want to know more about Qawwali, watch the trailer for our documentary.

The Qawwali Documentary

 
 

MUSIC OF THE MYSTICS - THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE MASTERS

“ After 20 years of studying this music in Pakistan & India with the greatest in the field, it is our humble duty to treat the world to a special glimpse into this tradition. Being the first American Qawwali group, we've had the unique opportunity to bridge this distant music culture with the west. Muslim Pakistan & India are often misunderstood, with so much negative media circulating incessantly. But there is a gem of great value that lies deep within this foreign land, that gem is called Qawwali. “ - Tahir Qawwal

Come chat with dozens of the top Qawwali master musicians, poets, authors & saints. Let your heart be moved as we present the music of Qawwali in the highest quality video ever seen & heard in its traditional setting.
