A Qawwali concert – Fareed Ayaz-Abu Muhammad and sons
Fareed Ayaz-Abu Muhammad Qawwal are considered to be amongst the most competent, knowledgeable and talented qawwal in the world today. Their ancestry can be traced to Miyan Samat Bin Ibrahim, who was a disciple of Hazrat Amir Khusrau, the inventor of qawwali, and the very first qawwal in this world. The qawwali of Fareed Ayaz-Abu Muhammad Qawwal represents the genre in its most pristine, pure and authentic where they have maintained a form unchanged over more than 800 years.
