Led by Nafees Irfan, the Qalandar Qawwals, UK’s leading mystic singers of an art form known as the Qawwali. Qawwali was little known beyond South Asia until the late 20th century. Although there have been many good qawwali performances in the mid-1970s, it was not until the late ’80s that the music gained a truly global audience, primarily through the work of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who has been widely recognized as the finest qawwal of the second half of the 20th century.
