Music of Pakistan: religious music and Soufi music ep.1/2

A documentary directed by .

Synopsis

Dur­ing their meet­ings, those who prac­tice soufism lis­ten to the poems sung by their mas­ters, “the Qhawali”. This tra­di­tional music, enhanced by new lit­er­ary and musi­cal ele­ments, has become the most pop­u­lar in Pak­istan. Today, mas­ters like Nus­rat Fateh Ali Khan and Pataney Khan are the great­est heirs of this tra­di­tion. These artists sing praises to the Prophet and his saints. Dur­ing a voy­age through the coun­try and towns of the Sind and Pun­jab, we encounter these artists as they per­form in mau­soleums, mar­riages, and fes­ti­vals. This film presents a por­trait of these mas­ter­ful musi­cians in all the splen­dour of their art.
