Asian Arts Agency presents the internationally acclaimed Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals.

About this event

Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals make a highly anticipated return to the UK, bringing an unforgettable musical experience of enchanting, majestic and intoxicating Sufi music.

Nephews of the legendary Qawwali maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the two brothers Rizwan-Muazzam are the contemporary torchbearers of the rich Qawwali musical tradition – a tradition that spans five centuries.

Performing together since the late 1990s, Rizwan-Muazzam have developed a devoted worldwide following with their exceptional live shows and acclaimed albums, including A Better Destiny and Days of Colour.

In great demand with global followers, Rizwan-Muazzam have performed at festivals and venues including Barbican London, Womad (UK), Royal Opera House, Edinburgh Mela, Jaipur Festival – India, Grand Performances – Los Angeles and Printemps des Arts – Monte-Carlo.

“Rizwan and Muazzam’s voices climb and swoop as if riding air currents; the harmonium seeks a similar undulating flight path while fingertips flutter like hummingbirds across the tablas” (BBC)

“One of the most exhilarating improvised vocal styles on the planet.” (The Guardian)

Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals toured the UK twice with sold out shows in 2017 and 2019, produced by Asian Arts Agency. Experiencing Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals hypnotic performances is a must for all music fans.
