Faiz Ali Faiz, Carmen Linares & Chicuelo (Qawwali and Flamenco)

Intriguing blend to say the least and curious to witness the coming together of of Flamenco and Sufi music

The volcanic power of the qawwali vocals blends with the hypnotic lyricism of flamenco, blurring distances from Pakistan to Andalucía.

Following their first encounter ten years ago, Pakistani singer Faiz Ali Faiz enlists again the rhythm and inimitable chords of Juan Gómez ‘Chicuelo’, the guitarist of preference of the great voices of flamenco. With an exceptional guest, the acclaimed cantaora Carmen Linares, and an ensemble of musicians especially reunited for this occasion, these artists go further in their search for the sources of flamenco in the Indo-Pakistani spirituality of Qawwali. This is a trip into the mystic and nomadic history of gypsy music.

    Thank you to those who came. It was very nice to see you all.

    I really enjoyed the concert - I thought the whole evening was superbly crafted and very intelligently woven. The complete lack of shouting, intermittent chanting, acoustic guitar, lack of on-stage ego, every song sung by both the Qawwals and the Flamenco singers, the warm embraces between the guitar player and the qawwal....I could go on :-)

      Hi, I will set something up. Any suggestions regarding venue?

    Ah......musical chairs.......should definitely be a fun evening then. Will book in Row E. Thanks for the info.

    Hi Malvinder, are you and Seema in the Stalls or Circle Section?

    September 16, 2013

    • Malvinder

      Hi Gail, we are both in the Circle section. Seema in in row L and I am in row E. Both seats still come up as available for sale which is strange but I suppose there is something not right with the system. Also when I booked Seema's seat yesterday, Row L was showing up in a different location to where it is today (Circle section but there were other rows above it yesterday, it is coming up as the top most row today). All set for a spooky evening :-)

    • Malvinder

      Hi Seema, I have got you a ticket. The tickets need to be picked up at the venue so will hand over to you just before the concert

      September 15, 2013

  • Malvinder

    I have booked seat E43, sitting together would be great if you can still get tickets in the vicinity.

    Also, I noticed the link I posted above no longer works. Here is the refreshed link: https://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=15076
