    “The soaring voice of Adelaide resident Farhan Shah, a Pakistani Pavarotti, was borne aloft by a trad-modern ensemble of drums, harmonium, electronic keyboard and guitar. The power of his ecstatic singing, crazy drunk and in love with the divine, was irresistible. His art draws on the centuries-old tradition on qawwali, to which he brings a modern sensibility. But the burning intensity of the music remains, stoking the fire of passionate union with God. The poet Rumi said “seek those who fan your flames” and Farhan Shah is exactly that.”
