Faiz Ali Faiz & Ensemble
Craig Adams & the Voices of New Orleans

With its pulsing drums and harmoniums, arduous incantations, and euphoric choral refrains, nothing induces a state of spiritual intoxication quite like Qawwali, a 700-year-old tradition of hypnotic Sufi praise music.

Qawwali Gospel Creation unites one of the genres revered torchbearers, Pakistani singer Faiz Ali Faiz, and his ensemble with African American gospel music-a music tradition equally steeped in cathartic song-in a joint evening with renowned pianist/singer Craig Adams and the Voices of New Orleans, raising the spirit in ecstasy.
