Event Details

Small World Music, in partnership with Kabir Centre and Aga Khan Museum, presents an evening of Sufi Music in the form of Qawwali performed by Abdullah Niazi Qawwals from Pakistan. Qawwali is a form of devotional singing, originating from the Indian subcontinent, and notably popular in the Punjab and Sindh regions of Pakistan; in Hyderabad, Delhi and other parts of India, especially north; as well as the Dhaka and Chittagong Divisions of Bangladesh.

In 2015, Abdullah Niazi branched out with his sons supporting him. His performance style is steeped in Amir Khusro's Kalaam (verses) and is based on Indian Classical Music. He carries the qawwali performance with a command and virtuosity rarely found in contemporary Qawwals, capturing Amir Khusro's poetry and its musical emotionality in all its subtlety and intensity.

Proudly supported by TD Bank Group, through the TD Ready Commitment.
