Show all Qawwali Singers

We offer professional Qawwali Singers for concerts, weddings or special events across the UK. Our acts have a wealth of experience at performing on stages at festivals and concerts as well as performing at weddings for the Pakistani community in the UK.

Qawwali groups tend to have 8 or 9 performers involved including singers, tabla players, dholak players and harmonium players and the performances have been known to hypnotise the listeners and the musicians!

Generally the lead vocalist and the side singers will take turns in putting different melodies together with lots of improvisation and each song can be anything from 15 to 30 minutes long.

This traditional Sufi music originates from the 13th century and was made famous across the world by great performers like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan whose family had a 600 year old tradition in Qawwali.

"Is the physical and musical manifestation of the Sufi religious tradition in South Asia. Powerful, poetic & transcendent, its hypnotic rhythms and melodies celebrate God, love and music as one." Bobbly Friction, BBC Asian Network
