Amjad Sabri's death is a horrible end to the career of this inheritor of
the tradition of Qawali singing. His father Ghulam and his uncle Maqbool
constituted the Sabri Brothers the best known qawali performers in the west
aster the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

I saw Nusrat and later the Sabris perform in Sydney many years ago. Both
performances were transcendently beautiful To use butchery to silence such
beautiful sounds is profoundly wrong and stupid,
