Sufiyana Kalaam

6 Jul 2024

19:30 - 21:30

St George’s Hall

On our tenth anniversary, we welcome back the now world-famous Orchestral Qawwali Project, who made their debut at Bradford Literature Festival in 2021. Made up of composer and arranger, Rushil Ranjan, and singer, Abi Sampa, they have found a unique new way to frame the deep reverence and spiritual rapture associated with qawwali. 

Qawwali, the most popular form of Sufi music, is part of a musical tradition that stretches back more than 700 years, connecting this event to generations of poets and performers through time. A firm audience favourite, this will be a mesmerising evening of Sufi poetry, celebrating the musical traditions of the Punjab and the Indian subcontinent, fused with orchestral sounds.  

Prepare to be taken on an immersive journey that harks back to the traditional setting of a haveli, creating a truly unmissable experience.
