Born in Pakistan, Sain Zahoor is a Sufi 'street' musician who has dedicated his life to singing at shrines and festivals. Now in his 70s, Zahoor performs kalams: verses of devotional poetry with passion and flamboyant joy. A BBC World Music Award winner, Zahoor has taken his simple but uncompromisingly powerful message of spiritual love and tolerance all over the world. With his five-piece ensemble, this charismatic figure is a true holy man who makes and unforgettable impression.
Fans of the Sufiana kalams claim that seeing and hearing Sain Zahoor in full flow is the closest anyone alive will get to being in the presence of the Sufi mystics of yore.
