Chand Ali Khan Qawwal & Party are the leading UK-based international Qawwali Group, performing authentic Qawwali for all occasions.

Chand Ali Khan Qawwal & Party are the leading UK-based international Qawwali and Bollywood group, primarily performing in the art of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis. Extending the 700-year old genre of Qawwali, Chand Ali Khan Qawwal & Party are the leading lights of qawwali in Europe. The lead qawwal, Chand Ali Khan, is widely credited for his virtuoso talents in Qawwali and Naat to a range of international audiences, particularly in the UK. He performs the sacred art form with his mesmerising vocals that create a powerful resonance encompassing the most complex techniques of the 700-year old tradition. Chand Ali Khan has been rigorously trained under some of the legends of the music industry. Coupled with the disciplined training of the Party, this generates a fiery and compelling experience, as enjoyed by audiences around the world. Born in Pakistan, Chand Ali Khan had his first public performance at the age of 13 at his International School Sufi Day. Initiated and trained under the Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Memorial Academy UK, he was appointed the Head of the Qawwali party with the permission of Haji Muhammad Iqbal Naqeebi (Secretary & Manager of the late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan). Chand Ali Khan is also the ‘shagird’, or disciple, of world-renowned Ustad Iqbal Hassan Khan, influenced and impressed by the legendary and authentic style of raw qawwali as popularised by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Today, Chand Ali Khan is in high demand, performing across the UK & Europe, and engaging in collaborations with various artists across the world. He is strongly established as an artist in UK qawwali, and has received recognition from the qawwali circles including Ustad Rizwan Muazzam Ali Khan for his humble rapport.

Song list

Allah Hoo Allah Hoo
Kamli Wale Muhammad
Sare Nabian Da Nabi
Iss Karam Ka Karoon Shukr e Kaise Ada
Akhiyan Udeek Diyan
Tumhein Dillagi Bhool
Mere Rashke Qamar
Tajdar e Haram
Nit Khair Manga
Shah e Mardan e Ali
Dulhe Ka Sehra
Mast Nazron Se Allah Bachaye
Mera Piya Ghar Aaya
Afreen Afreen
Sanu Ik Pal Chain
Ali Da Malang
Sochta Hoon Ke Woh Kitne Masoon The
Ankh Uthi Mohabbat Ne
Bhar Do Jholi
Tere Mast Mast Do Nain
Kinna Sohna Tenu
Mein Neevan Mera Murshad Ucha
Ali Maula Ali Maula Ali Dam Dam
Kiwein Mukhre To Nazaran Hatawan
Jhoole Lal Dam Mast Qalandar

Chand Ali Khan Qawwal UK were the main entertainment at my sister’s wedding. They mesmerised our guests with their emotional and spiritually uplifting Sufi music and especially taking the time to learn some specific personalised pieces to play during the bridal and grooms entrance :-) After seeing the number of photos and videos circulating amongst our family of groups performance, they were most certainly one of the popular aspects of our wedding! Chandi Ali Khan had a real and profound connection with the Qawwal music and it comes through in every piece of music they play and seeing how much our 1000 or so guests enjoyed their repertoire we cannot wait to have them perform for us in many future events :-) From the moment I got in touch with Chand Ali Khan till the day of the wedding, the communication and service was truly above and beyond anything I could have expected. I already know many of our guests are looking to book the group for their events and I hope many others out there get a chance to be wowed by their magical performances 😊 Thank you so much Chand Ali Khan Qawwal UK!

From the moment of booking, till their final execution, Chand Ali Khan Qawwal have shown a sense of professionalism that is all too often overlooked. They catered to our every need. Step by step, in a collaborative effort we formulated a itinerary of the day, worked upon the songs that would best suit the occasion and provided foresight for any logistical issues that may arise. On the day itself, I speak on behalf of all those who attended our Walima, when I say what an absolutely fantastic performance your team put on! Your personalisation was superb and much loved by all; making us feel welcome and included. These chaps are certainly gifted and if by now you're reading this and still contemplating on a group of talented musicians, please look no further as these artists are not here to disappoint. Once again thank you to Chand Ali Khan Qawwal and company for providing that special edge to our Walima! We wish you only the very best in the future, inshallah! Kindest regards Dr Mohsin and Farah Chaudhary
