The Reed Society partnered with the GWU Pakistani Students’ Association to host a qawwali presenting the Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad Ensemble. The event was opened by scholar Dr. Tarek Elgawhary from Coexist to speak on the importance of celebrating all aspects of Propehet Muhammad’s life (PBUH).

“Qawaali music, is the physical and musical manifestation of the Sufi religious tradition in South Asia. Powerful, poetic & transcendent, its hypnotic rhythms and melodies celebrate God, love and music as one."
