Well-loved Qawwali duo, the Sabri Brothers, have been entertaining the audience all over the world for over 30 years.
Known for their powerful singing, they started learning music at the age of 10 under the guidance of the famous classical vocalist of India, and their father, Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan.
With stunning virtuosity & power, they convey a subtlety & sensitive beauty in their singing, led by the soaring voices of Aftab Sabri & Hashim Sabri.
They are notable in the history of Qawwali music as the first Sufi musicians to perform in the United States and other Western countries, leaving a lasting mark on the Qawwali music industry.
The Sabri Brothers have received numerous prestigious awards in honor of their artistry, including the President of Pakistan’s coveted ‘Pride of Performance’ award in 1978. They also performed at various special events and spiritual ceremonies.
Coke Studio Season 8 paid a special tribute to the Sabri Brothers with Atif Aslam performing the all-time hit ‘Tajdar-e-Haram’ and in 2015, ‘Bhar do Jholi Meri Ya Muhammad’ was featured in the Bollywood movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ sung by Adnan Sami Khan.
They are internationally respected for their raw, energetic, highly original style in delivering popular numbers from the traditional Qawwalis, and a distinctive percussion style.
They offer a rich repertoire of Qawwali & Sufi music along with a few Bollywood hits. While their Sufi poetry is soulful & laidback, their Qawwali is foot-tapping and energetic – a blend that’s indeed versatile.
