Saturday, April 29th, 6pm - 9pm: Riyaaz Qawwali interview: Sufi qawwali music and more, from the Lone Star State

You may know the late great Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, whose ecstatic Sufi qawwali music broke through to international audiences. That success paved the way for other qawwali artists from South Asia to go global. But now there is a top-notch qawwali ensemble right here in the US: Houston-based Riyaaz Qawwali, who are in town to play Sunday night at Roulette in Brooklyn as part of the weekend-long World In Trance Festival. Riyaaz, with two albums out - Ishq and Kashti - has an emigre twist: While much of the material is based in Sufi mysticism, this multi-cultural ensemble - with members from several countries - incorporate Hindu, Sikh and other themes as well. We'll learn about that and more on this week's show!
