Tahir Qawwal Sufi Music

Tahir Qawwal & Party
Music IS the bridge to the mystery beyond this worldExperience deep devotion, ecstatic rhythm and passionate poetry
of the Sufi music culture of ‘Qawwali’ at this intimate concert
at the Church of Trinity Hall on Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Renowned Sufi musician Tahir Qawwal returns to Australia
for a brief interlude in his international touring schedule,
after completing a wildly successful season in the USA & Canada.

Tahir also presents an exciting Raaga workshop
in the afternoon preceding the concert (more details below).


Much loved in Australia for his vocal dexterity & passionate performances, Tahir authentically represents the tradition of Sufi Qawwali music with the blessings and guidance his teachers in India and Pakistan, a journey of experience that has continued for more than 16 years.

Through music he offers audiences a glimpse inside a rich and vibrant
Sufi culture that truly embodies tolerance, devotion and mysticism.  In the current mood of religious intolerance in Australia, it seems appropriate to share the message of Sufism through this art form.

This will be the 5th year that Tahir’s Australian Qawwali ensemble will
be playing together.  Featuring the deep tabla grooves of Afghani master player Yama  Sarshar and talented singers originally hailing from Punjab, India.  Playing for a wide range of audiences, the group’s musical offerings never fail to ignite hearts and and stir deep emotion. 

Tahir Qawwal is committed to helping to build a broader understanding of the depth & beauty of Sufi culture by working to complete the first full length documentary about the Qawwali tradition titled “Music of the Mystics”.  He has been screening parts of the movie at concerts.
