their Thrashing rock guitar & heavy drums combine with qawali's impassioned vocal improvisation, driving percussion & rising handclaps, providing a unique, trance-like listen.

they mix the Sufi music of qawali with a back drop of rock´n´roll. Rocqawali are dedicated to spreading the Sufi message,"Love across all religious, political & physical borders" Singer Ejaz Sher Ali is a young & uprising qawali star, son of one of Pakistan´s oldest & most important musical families. the record was Produced by the renowned Mark Howard who has worked with Bob Dylan, Tom Waits & Neil Young. This idea of eliciting a transcendent state through music seams right through the marrow of Rocqawali's musical bones. The sessions were recorded live over 7 days & centred on long, meditative jams from which the arrangements presented on this album were organically born.
