Join Emory University Spiritual and Religious Life as we welcome the music ensemble Riyaaz Qawwali. Riyaaz performs the gripping musical style called Qawwali as they spread the power of South Asian devotional music from Islam and a diversity of religions. Riyaaz shares Qawwali with new audiences while paying homage to this music tradition that has been refined over 700 years and includes sonic elements that are unique to South Asian music. They sing poetry from famous South Asian authors from various religious and linguistic backgrounds to convey a universal message of love and surrender. They weave together multiple languages, including Gujarati, Hindi, Persian, Punjabi, and Urdu. RSVP for the concert at https://bit.ly/EmoryRiyaaz. For questions, please contact religiouslife@emory.edu.
