The aspiration of Fanna-Fi-Allah is to bring the magic of Pakistani Qawwali to the west in it’s traditional form, inherited directly from the grand masters. The group has been deeply involved within Pakistan & India, spending plenty of study time with Pakistan’s present day Qawwali greats, as well as performing regularly in the important sufi shrines & festivals (since 2001). They have been blessed to play qawwali at the beloved tombs of Data Ganj Baksh (Lahore), Baba Ganj-e-Shakar (Pak Pattan), Baba Bulleh Shah (Kasoor), Baba Lasuri Shah (Faislabad) and in India at the tombs of Khwaje Nizzam-Ud-Deen Aulia, Hazrat Amir Khusrau, Pir Inayat Khan (Delhi), Khwaje Mueen-Ud-Deen Chishty (Ajmer).
Qawwali is a passionate devotional practice in which the fire of divine love (ishq) is ecstatically expressed through the mystical verses of Sufi poets, sung in Urdu, Farsi, Hindi and Punjabi. The origins of Qawwali music date back about a thousand years to the first sufi mystics who came to India. Qawwali has evolved into an immense art form spanning over hundreds of years of poets, languages & musical evolutions. Qawwali is associated with the 'sama' - a spiritual gathering of the Chisti Order whose religious context serves to bring members of the order into trance-like states, that makes them more aware of their relationship with God.
