Saami Brothers Qawwal

 

Saami Brothers Qawwal belongs to the best known Gharana of Qawwali, the Qawwal Bachon Ka Gharana of Delhi. This Gharana, approximately 800 years old, was started by Saamat Bin Ibrahim, the principal student of Hazrat Amir Khusrau. This Gharana has produced famous Ustads like the late Ustad Tanras Khan, court musician and tutor in classical music of Bahadur Shah Zafar the last Mughal Emperor. 

The Saami Brothers started there at a tender age, training in classical music under the rigorous and critical tutelage by the three mentors the late Ustad Munshi Raziuddin Khan, the late Ustad Nizamuudin Saami and Ustad Naseeruddin Saami. 

The Saami Brothers are accomplished musicians in the genre of classical music and now perform professionally. 

The brothers have total mastery over various genres of classical music, such as Dhrupad, Khayal, Tarana, Thumria and Dadra which they blend beautifully during their performances of qawwali. They received praise for their masterful performance at The All Pakistan Music Conference, where they were invited to perform as classical singers and not a qawwal. 

The brothers are well versed in several languages and perform in Urdu, Sindhi, Punjabi, Arabic, Hindi, Birj Bhasha, Saraiki, Persian etc.
