About Riyaaz Qawwali Qawwali is an amazing genre of music, with lively rhythmic cycles, gripping melodies and a unique approach to adding improvisational poetry. It is no wonder then that this genre has gripped the attention of each musician that has joined the group. It is the party’s goal to re-familiarize audiences in the United States with this unique musical style. The songs which constitute the qawwali repertoire are mostly in Urdu and Punjabi (almost equally divided between the two), although there are several songs in Brajbhasha and Persian. The poetry is implicitly understood to be spiritual in its meaning and the central themes are love, devotion and longing (for the Divine).

What ghazals emphasize are the themes of love itself and the tribulations of the lover . The lover must endure in their unconditional admiration for the Beloved and quest for Union. Ghazals narrate the journey of the loverprotagonist and the suffering, cruelty, and sacrifices in their attempts to reach the beloved.
