About Sukhawat Ali :

Sukhawat Ali Khan represents the family lineage of the 600-year old Sham Chaurasia traditional school of music established during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar in India. He is trained in classical raga and Sufi Qawwali. He started learning music at the age of seven under his father legendary Pakistani/Indian vocalist Ustad Salamat Ali Khan. A San Francisco Bay Area resident, Sukhawat Ali Khan teaches his musical style and performs concerts for dance and world music lover with his band Baraka Moon.

In his own words, his musical philosophy - "Each song I do has classical thought behind it and I know how to sing it properly, but my style comes from my life, too. I spent time in New York. I go to clubs. I like the hip-hop beat, Latin music, rave. There's a performing energy there that I also feel. It's the same kind of energy a good Qawwali singer has, and we can really express it freely in America."
