Riyaaz Qawwali and The Harlem Gospel Travelers


Singing Together is a qawwali and gospel music collaboration between Riyaaz Qawwali (from Texas) and Harlem Gospel Travelers (from NYC). The concert, 75-90 mins, consists of songs from both genres separately, and then collaborations are performed. The collaborative pieces carefully interweave qawwali and gospel elements into a singular soundscape, where the listener doesn't know where one genre ends and the other genre starts. In the creation of these pieces, the lyrics also were carefully arranged to honor both traditions. Riyaaz Qawwali returns to NYC after their sold out performance at Cathedral of St. John The Divine which was presented by World Music Institute in January of 2019. Don’t miss this unique show celebrating the unifying joy of spiritual music.
