Known for Sufi performances, the award-winning group from Pakistan is keeping the family tradition of mystic singing of more than 700 years. Ustaad Fariduddin Ayaz Al Hussaini belongs to the best known ‘gharana’ (family) of musicians, Qawwal Bachchon Ka Gharana of Delhi. The family tradition was started by Samaat bin Ibrahim, the principal student of Amir Khusrau, most renowned Indian musicians of all times.

In the present generation of this gharana, Ustaad Farid Ayaz and his brother Ustaad Abu Muhammad lead their group who has won several awards for their performances. They have performed in Australia, Canada, Europe, USA, UK, Pakistan, India and the Asia Pacific.

Trained in classical Indian music, they perform various genres of Indian classical music like Dhrupad, Khayal, Tarana, Thumri, and Dadra. They sing in Urdu, Sindhi, Punjabi, Pushto, Hindi, Poorbi, Persian, Arabic and Turkish with Kalams (poetry) from poets like Maulana Jami, Jalaluddin Rumi, Sachal Sarmast, Bulleh Shah, Khawaja Ghulam Farid, Amir Khusrau, Kabir Daas, Wamiq Hyderabadi and others.

In 2017, the group performed at the Swan Festival of Lights and The University of Western Australia in Perth where they entrained their audiences with superhit qawaalis like Piya Ghar Aya, Damm Mast Qalandar andChaap Tilakk.
