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 devotional song in South Asia 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. Riyaaz sings poetry from famous South Asian authors from various religious and linguistic backgrounds to convey a universal message of love and surrender. Riyaaz weaves together multiple languages, including Gujarati, Hindi, Persian, Punjabi, and Urdu.
