Fanna-Fi-Allah hold the flame of traditional Sufi Qawwali music, with the blessings of their teachers; some of the greatest masters of the qawwali form in India and Pakistan. The group's founding members have spent over 20 years learning this classical art, which celebrates the great Sufi mystics of old and relishes in the love of the Divine through poetry. Sung with a powerful soaring chorus and accompanied by the energetic rhythms of tabla and group clapping, the Beloved is celebrated with ecstatic devotion.

Fanna-Fi-Allah have been blessed to play qawwali in its traditional setting at the honoured tombs of sufi saints in Pakistan and India, where qawwali originates. These include the sacred shrines of: Data Ganj Baksh (Lahore), Baba Ganj-e-Shakar (Pak Pattan), Baba Bulleh Shah (Kasoor), Baba Lasuri Shah (Faislabad) and in India at the tombs of Khwaja Nizzam-Ud-Deen Aulia, Amir Khusrau, Pir Inayat Khan (Delhi), & Khwaja Mueen-Ud-Deen Chishty (Ajmer).

During their 17 years of world-wide touring, they have offered audiences a unique glimpse into this rich and vibrant culture; playing at many international festivals and concerts in major cities. They have enthralled audiences in the USA, Canada, Pakistan, Europe, Indonesia, India, Egypt (etc) with their dynamic skill and passionate musical precision. With ten albums already published, Fanna-Fi-Allah now offer us an even deeper glimpse into this Sufi world of Pakistan with the production of their new documentary: Music of the Mystics.
