Sufi Music is a vast sea to be captured within limits but when we talk about Zakir Ali, it seems that this amazing singer has grabbed Sufi Singing to greater depth.
Born on 1st July 1968, Zakir Ali is the son of Mohd Ayub Khan Sahab. It was none but Zakir’s father who introduced him to Sufi singing and trained him up to higher levels of perfection. Since the early age of life Zakir started to learn different Sufi singing styles from his father but through the various passing stages of training, he developed a special inclination towards Qawwali.
With sincere efforts and countless hours of practice, that trainee child became Ustad Zakir Ali, a maestro of Qawwali singing.
As the fragrance of a flower can’t be bounded, soon Zakir’s talent and sweet voice started to strike the doors of listeners. Zakir started to perform and soon he secured a great respect as perfection of Sufi singing. Later with long journey of various performance at different levels Zakir secured a unique place among contemporary Qawwali singers.
Zakir now holds the top slab among his contemporaries with more than fifteen years of experience as Qawwali singer. He has performed not only in India but also in foreign countries.
Zakir Ali has defined Qawwali singing in his own manner and of course he has given new dimensions to the same. With restless efforts and new experiments, he has enhanced Qawwali singing to its extreme levels. Zakir is a true transported of those precious Sufi music trends which are priceless and a must have from generation to generation.

With voice and instruments the sympathetic chimes of Sufi Music in this albums are suffused with devotional Qawwalis to Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chisti. Melodious as well as rhythmic Qawwalis leave a rich feel of the tremendous devotional power of Sufi singing. From desertion to devotion; welcome to worship; dedication to homage, this album demonstrates the multiple dimensions of Sufi culture as well as its music. All the Qawwalis drown a listener within themselves to be brought back to the surface with nothing but the feel of Sufism…Sufism…Sufism.
