Furthering the worldwide legacy of their renowned uncle and tutor, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, brothers Rizwan and Muazzam Mujahid Ali Khan are leading torchbearers of qawwali, a centuries-old form of Sufi devotional music from South Asia. Supported by pulsing rhythmic hand claps and an ensemble of harmonium and tabla, “Rizwan and Muazzam’s voices climb and swoop as if riding air currents” (BBC).
