    Mann Kunto Maula has been performed by so many artists, but rendition by Abida Parveen and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan remains in a different league.

    Download Nusrat Sahib’s version below to admire the amazing genius of King Qawwal.

    Qawwali certainly seems the greatest musical export from South Asia. Although I don’t understand Indian raag, Qawwali has a amazing groove to it, and many of my friends at university enjoyed it too. Anybody recommend a good place to download Qawwali from Pakistan?

    sounds like Balkan Gypsy band.
    Aistaguca – Balkan Gypsy Wedding Band! – Iag Bari

    –this is a typical western music form which is dominated by Harmony and Rythm. qawali is mainly based upon two important pillars: rag and tal. Rag is the melodic form while tal is the rhythmic.
    Brooklyn qawali is a corruption of western and eastern musical forms and lack of devine notes, is like shouting and without classical music constraints.

    Excellent. I am not a jazz fan but a big qawalli fan. What I loved about this was that it made me understand what Nusrat Fateh Ali’s qawalli sounded like to someone who is not following the words. For me the words are really important in qawalli but this made me realize how powerful the music component is.
