On the occasion of the holy month of Ramzan coming to an end and the festivities of Id-Ul-Fitr approaching, The Times Of India is organising an evening of qawwalis by the renowned Wadali Brothers, at the Hotel Taj Banjara, on 11th October.

The Wadali Brothers, Puranchand and Pyarelal Wadali, received their first musical training from their father, Thakur Das, at their ancestral village, Guru ki Wadali, in Amritsar.

While deeply influenced by their Sufi faith, the brothers have branched out from qawwali and into Hindustani classical music, training under Durga Das and the great Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. They also perform various folk forms.

In 1975, they were discovered by N M Bhatia, who brought them to the All-India Radio to record. In spite of their lack of interest in commercial success, the brothers got more and more recognition, which has led to the soundtrack work on films including 2003's Partition epic Pinjar.

The brothers were awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1991, the Tulsi Award in 1998, and the Punjab Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 2003. They have travelled to many countries and have always performed together. Practising music for years, these unassuming brothers now excel in almost all genres, from Sufi qalaam, qawwali and kaafi to bhajans, shabads and ghazals.

The entry is by invitational passes only, available at select Planet M outlets. Please contact The Times Of India at 2335-5335 for passes and further details.

The Wadali Brothers' performance was really really great.Yesterday's evening was one of the most pleasant evenings in my life.It was a priceless oppurtunity for me to attend such a qawwali performance.i have heard many qawwalis in cds,tv etc. but watching it live was awesome. I thank Times of India wholeheartedly. And I also wonder why many such events don't take place in hyderabad. Isn't here an audience for qawwali?
