Qawwali is a venerable yet refreshing musical
tradition that dates back to the late 13th
century. The word qaul refers to an "utterance
(of the prophet)" and the first Qawwals (qawwali
artists) repeated these qauls by making them the
subject matter of their qawwalis.
  • Famous among qawwali artists is the name of Amir
    Khusrow. He was a philosopher, an inventor, a
    gifted poet, and is mythologically credited to
    have created the genre of qawwali. More than 700
    years since Amir Khusrow composed the famous qaul
    Man Kunto Maula, Riyaaz Qawwali envisions
    modernizing the genre for today's audience,
    while staying true to the ethos of qawwali.

Popular Sufi Qawwali Songs are basically sang in
Urdu and Punjabi almost equally divided between
the two, although there are several songs in
Brajbhasha and Persian. Riyaaz Qawwali hopes to
take this niche tradition of Sufiana Kalaam and
expand its reaches by introducing newer poets to
traditional compositions and modernizing the
sound while keeping authentic elements, all in
efforts to reach new audiences.

The founding members of Riyaaz Qawwali chose the
qawwali genre of music because it houses unique
musical elements in its repertoire that are not
found in any other form of South Asian music.
Listen South Asian Music performed by Riyaaz
Qawwali.
Riyaaz Qawwali represents the unique diversity
and plurality of South Asia. The ensembles
musicians, who are settled in the United States,
hail from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and
Bangladesh and represent multiple religious and
spiritual backgrounds. Trained in eastern and
western classical music, the members have been
professionally performing qawwali for the past
twelve years. With conservative growth and
heightened attention to quality, Riyaaz Qawwali
has performed across the continental U.S., in
Panama and Europe.

Riyaaz Qawwalis mission is to expose qawwali to
new audiences, while still paying homage to
traditional qawwali that has been in existence
for 700 years. The ensemble wants to expand
the reach of the genre to new stages and people
of other faiths and traditions.
