A performance of classical Qawalli music and song, in a style dating back to the 13th century and inspired by Sufi traditions.
Featuring a local Qawalli group, who take inspiration from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Qawalli’s most famous performer, and folk music from Pakistan, with vocalists weaving melodies over percussion-based music, including harmoniums, tabla and dholak. An intense and profoundly moving experience.
