A goosebumps atmosphere is guaranteed when the renowned Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad Qawwal & Brothers perform at City Hall Square.

In the famous qawwali style, the music is performed by powerful vocalists, who go through several verse chorus sequences supported by other singers, as well as harmonium, tabla, dholak and clapping.
