4 Great Qawwalis by the Sabri Brothers
All these qawwalis are in Urdu, except for “Phool Rahi Sarson Sakal Ban”, which is in Poorbi and may be not all that easy to understand, but it is a genuine qawwali classic; its lyrics were written by Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal-e-A‘zam (1775-1862). The melody was composed by his court musician, Ustad Tanras Khan Sahib (1770-1872). Ustad Tanras Khan was a direct descendent of Mian Samad Bin Ibrahim, who was the main student of Hazrat Amir Khusrau himself (R.A.). All qawwals belonging to the Qawwal Bachchon ka Gharana (e.g. Ustad Farid Ayaz & Ustad Abu Muhammad) are descended from Ustad Tanras Khan, and therefore also from Mian Samad Bin Ibrahim.
