Concerts - Generation 21 | A Touch of Sufi Soul

SAA-uk began a tradition of devotional music in the month of February 2013, and welcomed an up and coming vocalist from London by the name of Shahid Abbas.

‘Divine Love’ in song is the basis of Sufi music which is devotional and inspired by the works of Sufi poets, like Rumi, Hafiz, Bulleh Shah and Khwaja Ghulam Farid. Shahid who is a great admirer of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan shared his music to a sold out audience.

Shahid Abbas is a young and up and coming vocalist based in London, and a disciple of Ustad Hussain Baksh Gulu.  Shahid performed tracks from his debut album in addition to Sufi and Qawwali favourites.
