NOTE: Advance tickets for this event are no longer available. We have SOLD OUT. We just announced another performance for Friday night. http://sufibooks.com/friday-may-6-2011-the-shahi-qawwals-additional-performance/
Please join us for an extraordinary evening of music. We are blessed to host the Shahi Qawwals, a troupe of traditional Chishty Sufi Sama singers from Dargah Ajmer Sharif of 6th Century saint Haz-rat Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti, located in Northern India.
The Qawwali tradition is a form of Sufi devotional music that stretches back 700 years. It is per- formed mainly at Sufi shrines, but was popularized by the late Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Please come to show support for the Shahi Qawwals and the representatives of the saint, Syed Riyazuddin Chishty & Syed Salman Chishty.
