On this edition of New Sounds, hear the Qawwali music of Farid Ayaz Qawwal. One of the leading performers of the centuries-old, suddenly hip style of Pakistani Sufi music and chant, Farid Ayaz and his Qawwali ensemble show how ecstatic poetry and music communicate across language and cultural divides. The group was formed by 82-year-old Grand Master Munshi Raziuddin, who has performed sacred music for over sixty years and passed on the art of qawwali to his eldest son Farid Ayaz and his younger sons. Farid Ayaz Qawwal & Brothers perform some of these devotional songs live in the WNYC studio.
