Following a day-long programme of free events celebrating Sufism, Tramway will host a a unique evening performance by Qawalli masters Shah e Mardan, to close the inaugural Glasgow Sufi Festival.

Qawalli (also spelled Qawaali) is a musical tradition from the Northern Indian sub-continent with over 700 years of history. It involves eight to ten people, usually seated, playing an array of instruments - primarily harmonium and percussion such as dholak and tabla – and accompanied, by vocals, with a lead and chorus. Qawalli sessions can last for hours, as musicians improvise in turn, building to a dramatic crescendo. It is an extraordinary journey that has to be experienced live, in person. 

A cosy, informal jam session that will become so much more, prepare to be transported to a higher dimension through mesmerising, trance-like rhythms and melodic intricacy .
