The aspiration of Fanna-Fi-Allah is to bring the magic of Pakistani Qawwali to the west in it’s traditional form, inherited directly from the grand masters. The group has 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 (since 2001). They have been blessed to play qawwali at the beloved tombs of Data Ganj Baksh (Lahore), Baba Ganj-e-Shakar (Pak Pattan), Baba Bulleh Shah (Kasoor), Baba Lasuri Shah (Faislabad) and in India at the tombs of Khwaje Nizzam-Ud-Deen Aulia, Hazrat Amir Khusrau, Pir Inayat Khan (Delhi), Khwaje Mueen-Ud-Deen Chishty (Ajmer).
A live performance by this newly formed London-based vocal group, which has already received acclaim for its captivating performances.
Inspired by the late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and his ensemble, Rehmat follow the tradition of qawwali singing from the Doaba region of the Indian Punjab. They have given a new feel to this style by blending different sounds and explosive rhythm patterns.
