At a dargah (Islamic shrine) situated in the south-east part of India, the singers sing devotional songs in the Qawwali style, with percussion accompaniment. The lyrics are a mix of the local south Indian language, Tamil and Arabic, while the music style is that of northwestern India.

This is from EarthSync’s album Nagore Sessions: a unique musical collaboration featuring Sufi, Indian, Middle Eastern and Western elements.
