Organized by the Aga Khan Youth & Sports Board for Pakistan: A Celebration of folk and Sufi music

Excerpt:

Recently, the Aga Khan Youth & Sports Board for Pakistan organized a weekend long celebration of folk and Sufi music by the name of Kunn Darvesh (meaning, be a devotee) and featured mystical performances by some of the most popular names from the genre of eastern and folk.

The event brought together giants like The Sabri Brothers, Fareed Ayaz & Abu Muhammad and Akhtar Chanal Zahri who collectively put listeners in a pleasant, enjoyable state of trance. The maestros and their ensemble presented some of their own compositions as well as those of other masters of qawwali and folk.

The show began on a crisp note with ‘Wohi Khuda Hai’ and an immediate connection was formed within the audience and the performers. And the giants of this genre, staying true to their impeccable reputation as performers, didn’t disappoint.
