Scottish Rite Museum Auditorium, Lexington, MA

Hamza Akram Qawwal & Brothers, grandsons of the revered Munshi Raziuddin, have been acclaimed for their riveting interpretations of qawwali, the ecstatic improvisational Sufi vocal tradition.

This award-winning ensemble represents the 26th generation of the seven centuries-old Qawwal Bachon ka Gharana of Delhi (India) founded by Saamat bin Ibrahim, the first qawwal of the subcontinent and principal student of mystic Amir Khusrau. The ensemble builds a state of ecstasy through rhythmic handclapping, drumming and powerful vocals (similar to the gospel in its call-response manner) and performs songs that range from 13th-century mystical Persian poems to more recent poems in Punjabi and Urdu.
