The Wadalis

The duo is known for their mesmerising jugalbandi; their repertoire is a mix of songs moving from Sufi songs of Bulleh Shah, to Ghazals & Bhajans


Famous Sufi singers & musicians from ‘Guru Ki Wadali’ in Amritsar, The Wadalis comprise of Sufi-Qawwali duo Padam Shree Ustad Puranchand Wadali & his son Lakhwinder Wadali.

Before turning to singing, Puranchand was a wrestler for 25 years. His father compelled him to learn music, & he learnt from celebrated masters such as Pandit Durga Das & Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan of the Patiala Gharana. 

Puranchand then formed a musical-duo with his younger brother Pyarelal in 1975. Together they would go on to do Sufi concerts all over the world & have even sung for movies like ‘Pinjar’, ‘Mausam’ & ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. However, Pyarelal passed away in 2018. 

Humility is their hallmark and they live in their ancestral house and teach music to those who promise to preserve it. The Wadalis sing many genres of music and recently stepped into the world of Bollywood music. 

In 2005, Puranchand received a Padma Shri for his contribution towards arts & music. Like him, even Lakhwinder is equally passionate about music & also dabbles in romantic Folk & Bhangra.

These legendary singers, renowned all over the world for their soulful and meaningful music and have been featured on all great platforms across the globe.
