Qawwali and Sufi Music
Sufi Music of India and Pakistan : Sound, Context and Meaning in Qawwali
by Regula B. Qureshi
The most distinctive and important genre of Muslim devotional music, Qawalli is closely identified with Sufism, the mystical form of Islam. At a Qawalli assembly, Sufi devotees gather under the guidance of a spiritual leader to experience states of mystical love and divine ecstasy through a ritual listening to music. In this study, Qureshi creates a "context-sensitive musical grammar"--a way to study the setting, audience, and performance as elements of the music. Amazon.com
