<b>Qawwali Music in Contemporary Pakistan<br>with Umair Jaffar</b><br>

Join Umair Jaffar as he explores the changing face of qawwali, a devotional genre of music thought to have originated in Sufi shrines. Today, qawwali is increasingly being performed outside of its sacred milieu — at weddings, corporate events, and social gatherings. How does this align with its sacred origins? Is the soul of qawwali fading? Jaffar delves into to these questions and unravels the various interpretations of qawwali music in contemporary Pakistan.

This talk is free with the purchase of Museum Admission.
