In conjunction with Kahkeshan Art Council of USA, the ARY Digital Television and in cooperation with prominent community print and electronic media, the BHL-USA takes pleasure in announcing its undertaking of a spectacular and an inspiring event, “Qawali Nite - Mehfil-e-Samah & Ghazal" by world famous, Amjad Fareed Sabri also known as Amjad Sabri, a well known Qawwal of the time.
Biography Amjad Sabri was born in home of Qawwali Legend “Haji Ghulam Fareed Sabri”. He started to learn music at the age of nine years his academic music teacher was his own father. Haji Ghulam Fareed Sabri was a legend himself for decades, in the age of 12 Amjad Sabri was performing with his father in late 1988.
With his tall, burly frame, glossy locks and a tiny circle of gold glinting at his ear, Amjad Fareed Sabri naturally commands attention. But when he starts singing, it is his rich baritone that captures one completely. The voice is new, yet strangely familiar. Indeed, it is hardly surprising that the son of the legendary Ghulam Farid Sabri has inherited the quality of his father's voice and talent for qawwali.
Qawali is the traditional form of Islamic song found in India and Pakistan. The word qawwali is derived from the Arabic word Qaoi which means "axiom" or "dictum". A qawwal is one who sings qawwali, or the dictums of the prophets and praises of God. The qawwali is closely linked to the spiritual and artistic life of northern India and Pakistan.
