Hello people, being an admirer of qawwali and Nusrat Fateh Ali's music, me recently getting to your live performances of one of his qawwalis was an amazing experience. I'd like to do a review on you guys for a national daily in Pakistan, and I'd like to interview someone from your group :)..
Hey guys, Behad Ramza Dasda is my favorite song in this entire universe, I listen to it multiple times daily for the past year, when I heard your version I broke into tears, you guys are amazing and I apprecaite everything you have done.
Love your music - reminds me of listening to qawali when i was a child
when are you coming over to the Old World??
Suhail - London
I saw you a while back at Kripalu. FABAULOUS Are you playing nyc anytime soon? Headin in sat march 12, was hoping you had a local show going on.
Thank you, valerie
Would you be able to tell me if you are playing any gigs in march in the new york tri-state area?
Good to know about you guys through youtube. You guys are really doing great. I am also a fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's music, he was a great singer & great musician. His Qawwalis are still famous around the world. When I was doing my masters from Brooklyn college New York I used to drive cab to support my studies and during driving I used to listen his music. I remember New Yorkers have always asked me that who is this singer? and where he is from? No doubt he was exceptional. Now his nephew "Rahat Fateh Ali khan" is on the top in india & Pakistan & have won many awards. There is another good program aired on Pakistani TV channels by the name of "Coke Studio", it is a fusion of Sufi & pop music, by pakistani young artists. You can search it on youtube by "Coke Studio". Hope you like it too.
Keep playing the good music.
I'm a great admirer of nusrat and his songs.
Last year i saw your website and loved your passion and spirit for qawwali music.
looking forward for your performance in India, chennai....
You guys are phenomenal. I have a genuine question. Will you guys be traveling westward to perform in Los Angeles or California anytime. I feel sad that I am never able to watch you guys live.
Looking forward to your new songs.
Please, *please* tell me you'll be performing live somewhere next week? My husband and myself are coming to NYC from Toronto (first time!) and would love the chance to hear this live.
Simply amazing music you've created here. Well done indeed.
I love your music. My fiance and I work at the UN and love the mix. Do you ever perform in Boston, and would you be willing to play a little at my wedding in Boston? and if so, how much would you charge?
thank you for your consideration.
Please come and play in the UK. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!
add me to your email list please
I was wondering if you guys do weddings?
I'm writing from Victoria on the west coast of Canada, looking for a qawwali singing teacher in North America, with whom it is possible to come do a 1-2 week intensive study at first, with possible longer followup. Do you have anyone to recommend in the New York area or elsewhere in the US or Canada?
Thank you & best wishes!
it's so great to see you people giving tribute to NFAK. Brooklyn qawwali party!! You are awesome! :)
God bless ya!
Praises from Pakistan!
You guys are amazing. One of the best tributes to a legend. But I have a couple questions for you guys.
Are you guys coming up with another album soon? I got the first album and it was fantastic.
Another question I have is if you guys will be going on a tour outside NY? I live in Los Angeles and was wondering if you guys are going to be heading west for a concert any time?
Thanks for keeping the spirit of Nusrat alive and hope to hear from you guys soon.
I'm your party's great fan........great spirit great vision......All the best......
Love your music and ordered your CD. I'll cherish it. Being the biggest fan of Nusrat, west of the Mississippi, I've told many friends about your work. We give you tremendous respect, as Pakistani's, sufi's and muslims because you keep alive the beautiful work of the late great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, in your own amazing and creative way. Thanks, and all the best,
Fazeel (Los Angeles).
Hello. First and foremost, this is by far the most amazing fusion of qawwali that I have heard.
I will be visiting NYC from Sept 30 to Oct 4 and I was wondering if BQP will be playing anywhere in the city that weekend. I;s love to see you guys preform live.
do you guys ever go on tour. I would love for you to play in Charleston!
I absolutely love qawwali music and love the twist your group has put into it. Would you by any chance be performing anytime in the near future?
You guys rock but I haven't been able to catch a live show! Where can I find information on upcoming shows?
Still hoping for a second CD some day. But I just wanted to say Thank You for your music. I have a morning walking regimen and Allah Hu is still my favorite walking tune of all time!
This is very interesting. I am of a sufi family originally from India. Every year my family hosts an event in NJ to honor Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. The event is open to all and is free of charge. My parents have been hosting this event since we first came the country. The objective is simply to promote the teaching, "love to all and malice to no one". We generally have a Urdu speaking qawali bad at our event. I came across your website and was rather intrigues by it.
Do you have any plans to play in the Boston area? Else, I will certainly plan to attend one of your NYC events and will most likely bring my father to show him.
Where can i get a schedule for your new shos in the city?
Marvelous piece of work .In this global audiences, you gather the people with music especially Sufi /Qawwali music. Brooklyn Qawwali Party, which are united under the banner of Nusrat’s legendary music. After listening your unforgettable tracks, in reality I understand that music has no boundary and you done your passion very well although you didn't know Urdu/Punjabi language or it's not your mother language but your music penetrate in the whole body and touch the soul.
My best wishes for Brooklyn Qawwali Party which conveys the message of peace, harmony and love with Sufi Music for global audiences.
I salute you and keep it up!
Great Job guys. There are very few people who have so much passion for Nusrat.. way to go..
Hello Brooklyn Qawwali Party,
Have you guys played or have considered playing your music in Canada? There is a large interest in the South Asian culture here, and your music will be very encouraging with the young crowd here especially! (Especially in the Toronto area)
If not, feel free to get in touch with me for upcoming South Asian festivals that you can connect with, and I'll see what I can do!
saw your last performance on youtube and loved it! you guys are amazing!
when is your next performance in nyc?
I liked you very much after listening. I am also a great fan of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. I listen him very much.
Your track MAN KUNTO MAULA is very great. It is really very near to his original track.
I am also from Pakistan.
You guys sound great! Can you put me on your mailing list so I know when your next show is? Thanks, Rachel

You guys have given me what I've been looking for the past several years, two of my favourite genres brought together.

Hello I am unable to make it on 3-6-10 at Barbes would love additional dates in March/April in NYC area.
Awesome, and completely surreal!
I had been checking out Qawwali music lately and so found your CD on itunes and purchased it. I have to tell you that its the coolest thing ever! I am glad I had purchased the traditional ones first because that has made listening to your versions even sweeter!
So the one CD is the only one? I would love, love, love to be in line to know if you decide to come out with a new one. I would purchase it in a heartbeat.
Thank you for bring such musical joy (and soul and funk!)
When and where do you perform next in NYC?
You guys are amazing! You should also play "khwaja mere khwaja" ! Would love to hear your treatment of that as well.

Dear fellow qawwals we are a uk based qawwal group. we are intrested in recording some material with you. please let us know if you will be touring the uk in the near future.
I just discovered your group and you are amazing! I'm a big fan of Nusrat Sahib and it's great to see his music performed this way.
I was wondering if I could get en estimate of your performance charges at an event in Toronto.
Thanks and keep up the great work.
p.s. Saanson Ki Mala is another of his biggest hits, have you recorded a version of it?
Your music is not only wonderful in itself...but a worthy tribute to the legend that was Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan!
I like in Mumbai, India and do hope I will someday hear you live!
All the very best!
Great stuff, truly enjoyed your rendition of 'Behad....'
I am quiet amazed and stunned by your ability to capture of Nusrat's greatness.. the yearning and melodic structures he weaved!
It is my ambition to host a tribute to Nusrat and to have you perform!
I was wondering if you have listened to the three or four versions of following songs, which are my favourites. I think they would make for great improvisation by your group
1. Nit Khair Manga
2. Ankhian Udeek dian
Lastly, I would love to come and listen to you. I am in Toronto, and would like to know when you are performing next

BRILLIANT, I wish i was in one of your concerts RIGHT NOW
Love you guys...amazing sense of music.
Greetings from India ! In these troubled times where there is so much to polarize people along religious lines (for eg., Hindus and Muslims in India after the Mumbai attacks), Nusrats music is the most comforting of the few consolations available to people who imagine a shared identity and culture. I am Hindu and grew up with Urdu and with the Nusrat's qawwalis., and no matter how much I've listened to him, I'm always rendered speechless everytime I check out his sufiana qawwalis. Your rendition of "Man Kun toh Maula" brought tears to my eyes. Brilliant !!! Keep up the good work. The music you interpret is much more than just music !!
I am a major major fan of Nusrat (God bless his soul). As long as there are genuine musicians as you guys, who keep his music alive, I personally believe Nusrat will always live amongst us. Thanks a lot for your music. Amazing music. You guys understand the depth in Nusrat's music. I would love to see you guys perform Live. Would you be coming to the Los Angeles area or anywhere in the west coast? Carry on the great work. Thanks
Love your music. Did not know of you'll till I saw an article in one of the indian magazines. Any plans to perform in Atlanta?
