The Dream Journey Project to discover Pakistani Sufi and Folk Musicians
Dear Brother W,
You may be familiar with a project called “The Dream Journey”, which aims at making talented Pakistani Sufi and classical singers and musicians known to a wider audience, via YouTube.
It’s been going on for a few years now, and via this valuable project I’ve come across brilliant singers that I otherwise wouldn’t know, such as Habib Ahmad Niazi Qawwal, a relatively young but immensely gifted exponent of the Qawwal Bachche ka Gharana. There are some classical qawwali by Habib Ahmad Niazi, which I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Habib Ahmad Niazi lives and works in what is known as “Qawwali Gali” in Karachi.
All the very best to you,
Also worth checking out is Ustad Ameer Ali Khan Qawwal , an excellent Punjabi qawwal. He is a student of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahib.
