Sufi Muslim concert (A Mystical Journey) in San Francisco

Sufi Muslim concert

An all-star group of Sufi Muslim singers will perform in San Francisco on Tuesday night as part of a nationwide tour to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Aga Khan‘s spiritual reign. Rizwan and Muazzam Khan, nephews of the great Pakistani Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, headline the concert, along with Algerian singer Houria Aichi, Iran’s Dalahoo Sufi Ensemble, Tajikistan’s L’Ensemble Samaa and Syria’s Tahleelah, which is led by Hamzeh Chakour, the choir master at the Great Mosque in Damascus. Like the Khans, Chakour has a voice that brings his songs otherworldly crescendos.

The Aga Khan is imam to the world’s 15 million Nizari Ismailis. Tickets to the 8 p.m. performance at the Palace of Fine Arts are $30-$125, and are available at the door, or online at theismaili.org/amj.
