About the Artists
Ghulani Fnrifl Subri, troupe leader, and his brother Muqbool Ahmeil Sabri, assistant troupe leader and music director, were taught the art of Qawwali as children by their father, also a famous Qawwal. The Sabri Brothers' Qawwali troupe is the only troupe which has a "first class" status in the Pakistan Television Corporation. Popular film and recording artists in Pakistan, the Sabri Brothers' troupe has toured Europe, Asia and the Middle East. In 1970 the Government of Pakistan sent them to Nepal as representatives for the royal wedding. In 1975 they performed in the United States and Canada under the auspices of The Performing Arts Program of The Asia Society. That tour included a performance in Ann Arbor on March 16, 1975.
