The National Centre Performing Arts (#NCPA) will host the Sufi music festival this month from 7th to 9th.
This time the festival will see vivid artists giving a soulful Sufiyana touch.
The 1st day of the festival i.e. on the 7th of this month would start with a documentary film – #BreatheIntoMe. The documentary would start at 5pm. The documentary is by Muzaffar Ali – a recipient of the #PadmashriAward.
Muzaffar Ali is an Indian film maker, fashion designer, poet, artist, etc. His famous film ‘Umarao Jaan’ starring #Rekha is still talked about.
#BreatheIntoMe is a documentary on #MevlanaRumi’s poetry. The screening would be followed by a flute conversation where he would be taking us through #Rumi’s verses.
This event would conclude with an interactive session with #MuzaffarAli
We are talking of Sufi music festival and it is incomplete without #Qawwali.
Sufi music is best expressed in this genre of music.
At 7:30pm #WarsiBrothers from Hyderabad would entice the audience with their #DargahiQawwali performances composed by various #Sufi saints.
Nasir and Nazir Ahmed Khan Warsi belong to the QawwalBaccheGharana and are trained by their father and grandfather Zahir Ahmed and Aziz Ahmed who were also noted #Qawwali singers.
The next day, i.e. on the 8th of this month, there will be two documentary screening starting 5:30pm. The documentaries are again by #MuzaffarAli.
The documentaries are in English named ‘India, the garden of saints’ and ‘Nisbat’.
Please note the entry for these screenings would be free and on first come first serve basis.
As #Qawwali forms an integral part of #Sufi, how can we miss the famous #SufiWhirling?
Bollywood’s depiction has made the #SufiWhirling quite famous. We saw the famous #Khwaja song from #JodhaAkbar where #Hrithik twirls through the Sufi music and is shown to attain enlightenment.
We won’t have #Hrithik but #ZiyaAzazi – a Turkish born Austrian dancer and choreographer would entice us with his dance performance.
Last but not the least the famous Sufi star of the industry Kailash Kher would rock into the spiritual power the last day.
The ending day of the festival, i.e. 9th of November would witness Kailash Kher enticing the audience with Sufiana songs raging from traditional compositions to Bollywood Sufi songs.
