Following an acclaimed show in 2017, the internationally renowned Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals return to Birmingham for an evening of majestic and entrancing Sufi music.
Rizwan Muazzam Qawwali
Presented by Town Hall Symphony Hall Birmingham.
Drawing on a rich vein of Islamic and Sufi poetry, Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music from the Indian subcontinent and Rizwan-Muazzam come from a direct family line of spiritual Qawwali singers that spans five centuries.
Continuing the legacy of their legendary Uncle, Qawwali maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rizwan-Muazzam are the contemporary torchbearers of this rich musical tradition and were tutored by the master himself. The sacred Qawwali music they perform is intoxicating and entrancing to all who witness it, whether a scholar of Sufi music or completely new to the form.
Recent highlights have included performances at the Commonwealth Games, Australia, in April 2018, and an exciting new collaboration with Susheela Raman in Abu Dhabi. Rizwan-Muazzam continue to push the boundaries of the genre and their imaginative reinterpretation of classic Sufi texts breathes fresh life into this rich centuries old tradition.
