Qavvali Mahfil: Umair Ali at T2F

For February’s Qavvaali Mahfil at The Second Floor they’re pleased to present the young sensational Qavvaal Umair Ali & Rameez Ali

Qavvaal Ali Brothers belong to the Hapur Gharana which originally began as a Gharana of classical Dhrupad music and later also branched out in Qavaali; in fact some Qavvaals of the Hapur Gharana also became ‘Khadim’ (Caretaker) Qavvaals at the Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya in Delhi. Like many Qavvaals of Karachi, Umair Ali and Rameez Ali have also emerged from the famous Qavaali Mohalla (neighborhood), located in the shoe market area off Nishtar road. Their forte is in Persian Kalaam of Hafiz, Jami, Amir Khusro, Shah Niaz Be-Niaz and others. Shadi Khan and Murad Khan were two notable ancestors of Umair Ali Rameez Ali, who belonged to the court of the last emperor of the Mughal dynasty Bahadur Shah Zafar.
