~ Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali ~

Fanna-Fi-Allah’s passionately devotional music is a leading representation of Sufi Qawwali music worldwide. With their rich rhythmic grooves, soaring vocal melodies and the bright intensity of their live performances, Fanna-Fi-Allah urges us to lift our hearts in exaltation and devotion to the Divine.

Fanna-Fi-Allah embodies an authentic continuation of the ancient tradition of Sufi music. Key members of the group have spent over 20 years in dedicated study with the masters of this classical art-form in Pakistan and India and are deeply respected throughout the subcontinent.

During their 13 years of world-wide touring in places as diverse as the USA, Pakistan, Europe, Indonesia, India and Egypt, they have captivated audiences with their dynamic passion and skill, and continue to deepen the appreciation for this great Sufi tradition in the West. 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 Music ~

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, and musical evolutions. Qawwali is associated with the 'sama' - a spiritual gathering of the Chishti 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.
