This is the most extraordinary recording I own. Whenever I play just the audio for people, the common reaction to the round of applause at the end is one that accompanies awe. “THAT was LIVE?!”

Qawwali Flamenco is a meeting between the Pakistani Sufi tradition of Qawwali and Spanish Flamenco. Though the genres may appear quite different, they are actually very similar in that the Musica invites improvisational story telling, crying and wailing about Amore Lost and found, from subjects spanning from romance to god devotion.
The double album was recorded live at the Fes Festival of Sacred Music, Morocco, in June 2005. Faiz Ali Faiz leads his Qawwali Ensemble, while Miguel Poveda and Juan 'Duquende' Cortes are joined da guitarist Chicuelo to form the Spanish contingent.
It’s the ultimate mash-up and I can only hope più of this kind of cross-pollinating is made possible as the world gets smaller and smaller and we all get closer and closer. Hi, nice to meet you.
Wanna touch genres?
