Kala Sangam 19th January 2019
Qawaali Performance

Zahir Abbas Qawaal

Qawaali Performance

Saturday 9 February – 7.30pm

Using the power and passion of the voice, join us for an evening of Qawaali that will draw you in and connect you to the devotional music of the Sufis.

In high demand for their captivating and powerful performances, Zahir Abbas Qawaal is a leading Sufi Qawaali group who have performed across the UK and internationally.

Taking the reins from his father and teacher, Tazim Kahn, Zahir Abbas has been performing since the age of the 11 and is widely known for the high level intensity of his performances of this sacred art form.

Don’t miss what is bound to be the musical highlight of the season.

From Spring 2019 the majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
