The 2019 Sufi Festival in Glasgow is in fact truly blessed to be welcoming Qawaali group Shah e Mardan, whose lead vocalist and harmonium player, Mohamed Zubair, was apprentice to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and certainly does his legacy justice. Akin to a multi-vocal, multi-instrumental, transcendental jam session – Shah e Mardan can play for three hours without stopping.
Contrary to some contemporary assumptions about Islam, the message of Sufism is and always has been one of universal love, peace, and understanding, advocating openness and tolerance. As such, this Sufi Festival will be an immersive experience that brings different sections of the community together to share in cross-cultural exchange, keeping the flame of this most ancient cultural dynamism burning, to shine light on the path to mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Tickets to the Sufi Festival are FREE to all and available on EventBrite – but there is a limit to these so get yours before they go, and please remember to cancel your tickets if you can no longer make it a long. If tickets are not all gone on the day limited entry to walk-ins will be available. Keep up to date on our Facebook and Twitter feeds or contact us if you’re unsure.
