The Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali Party
Qawwali is a passionate devotional practice in which the fire of divine love (ishq) is ecstatically expressed through the mystical verses of Sufi poets, sung in Urdu, Farsi, Hindi and Punjabi. The origins of qawwali music date back about a thousand years to the first sufi mystics who came to India. Qawwali has evolved into an immense art form spanning over hundreds of years of poets, languages & musical evolutions.
The aspiration of Fanna-Fi-Allah is to bring the magic of Pakistani qawwali to the west in it’s traditional form, inherited directly form the grand masters. Along with performing in much of the western world over the past decade, Fanna has also been deeply involved within Pakistan & India. Spending plenty of study time with Pakistan’s present day qawwali greats, as well as performing regularly in the important sufi shrines & festivals.
