Farid Ayaz Qawwal, Abu Muhammad Qawwal & Brothers sing the pure traditional form of qawwali.
On their the group developed a sort of cult following, especially among the young, cutting across cultural and linguistic barriers.
Groups of both young and old would follow them from concert to concert. The group was formed by 82-year-old Grand Master late Munshi Raziuddin, who has performed sacred music for over sixty years and passed on the art of qawwali to his eldest son Farid Ayaz abu muhammad and his younger sons. The classical qawwali singing of the group has been passed on from generation to generation going back to Ustad Khansahib Tan Ras Khan, who was the teacher of the last Mughal Emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar.
Farid Ayaz Qawwal and Brothers have promoted the art of qawwali throughout Pakistan, India, Iran, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
