Houston-based ensemble Riyaaz Qawwali inaugurates our featured series “Many Paths,” presenting qawwali, a genre with roots in South Asia and mystic Islam.

The ensemble musicians represent the diversity and plurality of South Asian Americans, reflecting individual ties to India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, as well as to multiple religious backgrounds. They seek to contemporize qawwali by uplifting suppressed perspectives and promoting interfaith harmony.
