Friday, May 6, 2011 | The Shahi Qawwals from Ajmer Sharif (India) | ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCE | Concert by The Chishty Sufi Sema Ensemble | 8pm | $25 | Advance Tickets $20

Due to unprecedented sales for the Wednesday night performance, we are announcing a 2nd night of qawwali for Friday. Please buy advance tickets below.

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.
