The 6th death anniversary of legendary Sufi Qawwal and Naat Khawan Amjad Sabri was observed on Wednesday.
Born on December 23, 1976, Amjad Sabri used to participate in chorus in his father and uncle’s group, “Sabri Brothers.”
He started working as supporting vocalist after death of his father. Later, he started his own group.
Amjad Farid Sabri was a proponent of the Sufi Muslim tradition. Son of Ghulam Farid Sabri and nephew of Maqbool Ahmed Sabri of Sabri Brothers, he emerged as one of South Asia’s most prominent qawwali singers.
His main works included Main Nazar Karoon Jaan e Jigar, Allah Allah, Dhoom Macha Do, Kaab Ki Raunaq, Kaash Yeh Dua Meri, Ali Mera Dil, Phir Dikha De Haram, Tuloo-e-Saher Hai Shaam-e-Qalandar.
His Qawwalis Tajdar-e-Haram and Bhar Do Jholi immortalized him in the hearts of his fans.
