Qawwali Night: An Evening of Mysticism and Music
Why We Recommend it
Invited by the Consulate General of Pakistan, Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal and Brothers returns to Hong Kong to perform in an evening of mysticism and music that speaks of love and longing.
Qawwali is a Sufi devotional form known as the “path of the heart.” Consulate General of Pakistan in Hong Kong in partnership with Asia Society presents one of the most established Qawwal groups in the world, here in Hong Kong for the second time.
The traditional music works its way to ecstatic peaks with strong voices and percussive handclaps, seeking to transport musicians and audience closer to the divine.
Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal and Brothers are masters of Qawwali Sufi music as well as classical genres such as tarana, thumri, and khayal. Weaving together devotional and secular traditions, the Qawals have been bringing South Asian music to international audiences for over 30 years.
