Renowned Qawwal Amjad Sabri remembered on 2nd death anniversary
KARACHI (92 News) – Famous Sufi Qawaal and Naatkhuwan Amjad Sabri was remembered on his second death anniversary on Friday.
Two years after martyrdom, Slain Amjad Sabri was still lives in the hearts of people. The great Sufi Qawaal, Naatkhuwan, and singer Amjad Farid Sabri was murdered two years ago near Liaqutabad underpass.
The murderer of Qawaal Ishaq Boby and Asim Capri was sentenced to death by the army court. Both the murderer will be punished soon or later but Amjad Sabri is still alive in the heart of his lovers.
Amjad Farid Sabri was a proponent of the Sufi Muslim tradition. Son of Ghulam Farid Sabri and nephew of Maqbool Ahmed Sabri of Sabri Brothers, he emerged as one of the South Asia’s most prominent qawwali singers.
Like his elders, Sabri dedicated his life to keeping alive the tradition of sufi qawwali that dates back over seven centuries. Amjad used to recite poetry’s sung by his father and uncle.
His other works included Main Nazar Karoon Jaan e Jigar, Allah Allah, Dhoom Macha Do, Kaab Ki Raunaq, Kaash Yeh Dua Meri, Ali Mera Dil, Phir Dikha De Haram, Tuloo-e-Saher Hai Shaam-e-Qalandar.
His Qawwalis Tajdar-e-Haram and Bhar Do Jholi immortalized him in the hearts of his fans. His last music project was with Coke Studio where he performed the exceptional Aaj Rang Hai with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. But sadly, the light that was Amjad Sabri, was extinguished a few months before the release of the Coke Studio season featuring him.
