Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group (Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Nephews)


Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group


"Late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's nephews, Rizwan and Muazzam, sons of late Mubarak Ali Khan, have been performing together as 'Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group' since the 1990s. 'Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group' have successfully continued their uncle's pioneering efforts to transcend cultural, language and religious barriers, and to bring to the world the devotional Qawwali vocal music of the Sufi mystics of Islam. The lead vocalist Rizwan commented the following in regards to being compared to their incomparable uncle, late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: " We know that no one can emulate Nusrat, we just want to carry on where he left off and, God willing, we can take the craft forward. Qawwali is a precious thing that has stood the test of time, the songs connect to the human spirit and freshen the human soul. Our main message is love and the aim of Qawwali is to spread peace and understanding. ."Performers of Qawwali believe that they have a religious mission: to evoke the name of God in a quest for total transcendence. They use music as a vehicle to enlightenment or to achieve inner knowledge — via rhythmic hand clapping, percussion, harmonium and a vast repertoire of sung poetry. By repeatedly chanting salient phrases, they transport audiences to a spiritual nirvana or trance-like state.."
