• Fanna Fi-Allah "Muraqaba" LP

RM 128.00

Buda Musique


Created in 2001 by Tahir Hussain Faridi, the group was the first to integrate a female tabla player (Aminah Chishti) into their line-up and broke taboos by being allowed to perform in some of the sanctuaries of the great Sufi saints in Pakistan, spaces normally not open to women.

“The message of my music is open. Anyone can revel in my poems to the glory of God and enter this spiritual phase to be uplifted." These words of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, eminent representative of a multi-secular tradition, resonate with the story of the journey of Fanna-Fi-Allah. The Californian-based group have been touring their particular strain of Qawwali (Sufi praise music) for the past 17 years, including numerous tours in India and Pakistan over the past ten years, where they have succeeded in building a loyal following amongst both the public and Sufi elders alike, with their Youtube channel boasting over 20 million views.

“The message of my music is open. Anyone can revel in my poems to the glory of God and enter this spiritual phase to be uplifted.”

Their first international release features three long, hypnotic praise songs, underpinned by virtuoso tabla playing and ecstatic vocals. The stunning sound quality of the record (rare in Qawwali releases) comes from the Malibu studio of their fan Chris Martin.
