About Tahir Qawwal

In this time of religious extremism, there are still those who are carrying the flame of religious tolerance, devotion and mysticism - and the Sufis are some of the most ancient. Tahir Qawwal carries the tradition and teachings of the Sufis in his music, the devotionally driven and passionate music of Qawwali. Sufism is alive and well in India and Pakistan, where Qawwali music celebrates the great Sufi mystics of old, and relishes in the love of the Divine through poetry. Sung with a powerful and soaring melodious chorus and accompanied by entrancing energetic rhythms of tabla and group clapping, the Beloved is celebrated with ecstatic devotion. With worldwide acclaim and ten albums already published, Tahir has now given us an even greater glimpse into this Sufi world of Pakistan with the production of the new documentary: Music of the Mystics. Tahir Qawwal continues to carry on an ancient wisdom through music, a wisdom that is not only heard, but is profoundly felt. A universal message of devotion and tolerance that ignites hearts and quenches their deeper longings. A message that is so crucial for our time.
