as a cultural collaboration between Pakistan and Denmark, has turned into a fireball of a spiritual rock band. The band has created a unit to spread the Sufi message: ”Love across all religious, political and physical borders” coming strongly through.

 

ROCQAWALI mixes the Pakistani/Indian Sufi music of Qawali with a Western back drop of Rock´n´Roll, in a way that has not really been heard before.
