Artist of 17 week 2012 : Tahir Qawwal

Good and God’s morning …….

while listening to a sufi music album …..suddenly one voice mesmerized me and this voice has been of this fine artist ….. in last seven days only heard him so will share some of his fine performances ….. no words can explain his divine music but some words about him ….

Tahir Qawwal had begun studying Indian Classical music at the young age of 14 and teaching himself Sanskrit, he found that music was his path towards the one.

Studying under vocal masters Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Pashupati Nath Mishra, Sher Ali Khan, Muazzum Qawwal and various others Tahir embodies the potency of ecstatic devotion. Every day Tahir is devoted to the never-ending knowledge of raga. Through his vast knowledge he’s ability to transliterate the ancient Qawwali songs brings Fanna-Fi-Allah into manifestation.

Tahir has been the founder, leader, inspirer and vision holder of the first and only western-based Qawwali party, Fanna-Fi-Allah. His by-lingual education of English, French, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi and Pharsi is only growing to bring his students and audience to a deeper understanding of Qawwali music. Teaching vocal and music theory for 6 years, Tahir returns to the east, India and Pakistan every year. Where he performs and continues to expand his knowledge with the masters.

Tahir’s harmonium playing has become a great asset to Fanna-Fi-Allah. Outstanding rhythmic and melodic accompaniment keeps the audience attentive and amazed.

In 2006 at the age of 26 Tahir guided the members of Fanna-Fi-Allah for their first time to Pakistan. Meeting the masters and attending live Qawwali ceremonies. Tahir received an honor well due.

Fanna-Fi-Allah was asked to perform at the world’s largest Qawwali ceremony in Pak Pattan Pakistan at the shrine of the most famous Sufi saint Babba Farid. Tahir lead the first and only western-based Qawwali party into a place in history.

Tahir’s musical ability, gentle nature and fire of divine love is a performance not to miss. His dynamic vocal expertise creates reactions of laughter, tears of bliss, deep meditation and ecstatic dance. One of a kind transmission, which Tahir cultivates, awakens the place within, where all unity prevails.

Good and God’s morning …..

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” 
― Albert Einstein

how great this spiritual scientist Albert Einstein was ….

music is harmony of time and timeless …..harmony of left and right brain ….. harmony is vibrating at the same frequency as of nature …… harmony is harmony within for a flow of life outside …..

many time people ask why Indian music has raga system which corresponds with every hour of day and night ?….. 

Sun and Moon movements make temperature of day and night in every season of the year and produce flow of air waves at a particular wave length and vibrations …… 

as two eyes vision merge to bring the dimension of depth so is Indian raga music…
