Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad Ragas Live Festival 2021
We chat with Qawwal legend Abu Muhammad and hear a live performance from Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal & Brothers!
Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal & Brothers are among the world’s very finest exponents of Qawwali - a hypontic, vocal-driven form of Sufi devotional music rich in poetic and mystical symbolism. Their group, in the typical style of their genre, is led by powerful vocalists, who loop through multiple verse-chorus sequences backed by other singers as well as harmonium, tabla, dholak, and hand-claps.
Fareed Ayaz (or, to give him his full name, Ustad Ghulam Fariduddin Ayaz Al-Hussaini Qawwal) leads the group, along with his younger brother Abu Muhammad, while other brothers and family members form the rest of the musical core. Fareed and Abu first learned from their father, the esteemed Ustad Munshi Raziuddin, who hails from the Qawwal Bachchon Ka gharana, a tradition stretching back to Amir Khusrow’s disciples in 14th-century Delhi.
They also perform semi-classical forms from outside the Qawwali repertoire, including tarana, thumri, and khayal. Several decades of touring has seen the brothers sing to vast crowds all around the world, as well as making over a dozen crossover excursions into film music and Coke Studio.

Nice Indian music
Good source of indian classical carnatic music. I like it.
Love unadulterated Polynesian music just as they do it!! Simple, rhythmic, peaceful. Thanks again for posting, David.
I was pretty excited to see David Ellenbogen's radio show here on iTunes. Im a regular listener in Brooklyn, his show is from uptown Manhattan. For anyone who isn't familiar, Dave hosts live performances in the studio and does interviews with the musicians. Its a cool format and he picks some really diverse musicians to play. I recently heard an amazing show he had with Dennis McKenna, the scientific and empirical brother of intra-stellar voyager Terrence McKenna. It wasn't musical, more science-based, but it was great! Hopefully he puts that on here. 5 Stars for a great local show!
