Qawalli at WIMWI!

Qawwali concert, an event organised by the Heritage club of IIMA, left the crowd completely mesmerized. Rafiq Warsi, a veteran in Qawwali, took the crowd to raptures by presenting a diminishing art form rarely seen today in such a pure form. Rafiqbhai is from ‘Agra Gharana’ and has been performing qawwali for the past 20 years. His expertise lies in Sufi qawwali and he sings composures of the legendary sufi saint ‘Amir Khusro Dehelvi’, who is credited with being the founder of qawwali. Rafiqbhai firmly believes in communal harmony and togetherness and promotes it through his performances. Tonite’s performance included well-known songs like ‘ali maula ali ali’, ‘duma dum mast kalandar’, ‘tum to thehre pardesi’, ‘hum ek hai’, among many others. This event adds to the growing fame of the Heritage Club of IIMA, formed with the objective of promoting Indian cultural art forms by giving an opportunity to the lesser known and struggling artists. And it promises to up-the ante next time.
