Video: Saami Brothers Qawwal, Devotional Music from the Sufi Traditions of Pakistan
The classically-trained musical group Saami Brothers Qawaal, an eight-member ensemble considered to be one of the most accomplished qawwals today, performed live in front of a sold-out crowd on Sunday evening. The performance capped off a busy weekend at Asia Society, which hosted the two-day Lahore Literary Festival. In addition to live music, the festival included engrossing panels about literature, art, and education in Pakistan.
