Famous Qawal Amjad Sabri Died
The Sabri Brothers are a Sufi Qawwali party from Pakistan, closely connected to the Chishti Order. Sometimes, referred to as Roving Ambassadors for Pakistan. Sabri Brothers were originally led by the soaring voice of the late Haji Ghulam Farid Sabri, whose periodic repeat use of 'Allah' during songs has become a Sabri signature, and his younger brother late Haji Maqbool Ahmed Sabri. They were the first exponents of Qawwali to the West, when they performed at New York's Carnegie Hall in 1975. Many people consider the Sabris instrumentally more adventurous, rougher and more soulful than Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Party, Sabri Brothers have given a number of soulful qawwali performances globally with beautiful Qawwali hits.
