Description

Contact Rizwan Muazzam Qawwali Group is a Pakistan based Qawwali group, headed by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s nephews, Rizwan and Moazzam.
Both of them, Rizwan and Moazzam are the sons of Mujahid Mubarak Ali Khan, they have been performing together as Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group since the late 1990s.  They played their first major concert in 1998 at the Womad Rivermead festival in Reading, England.
The two brothers lead singers team come from a direct family line of Qawwali music that spans over five centuries. Their grandfather Mubarak Ali Khan was an uncle of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and taught Nusrat the art of qawwali vocal music. They themselves studied under the supervision of their father, Mujahid Mubarak Ali Khan, who died in 1996, and were then tutored by their uncle Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali Group is made up of two lead singing brothers (Rizwan and Muazzam), five secondary singers leading the choral response with vigorous hand clapping, two harmonium players and a tabla player. They perform in traditional Qawwali style – sitting on the ground rather than on seats – which they believe brings them closer to God.  They have given many joint performances at the Coke Studio in Pakistan in collaboration with various other fellow musicians including Shazia Manzoor that became very popular in Pakistan.
