Amjad Sabri - Tragic loss; His Bhar Do Jholi Qawwali

I had not known of Amjad Sabri, Sufi Qawwal singer from Pakistan, prior to reading about his tragic killing. Here's one of his qawwalis which seems to be quite popular. I found it to be very moving spiritually (even though I did not follow all the words of the song). Bhar do Jholi Amjad Fareed Sabri, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JD1k4_d0S1Y, around 15 min.

What a loss!!! Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan sahab was a very famous Qawwali singer of Pakistan who passed away some years ago.

Here's a report on Sabri's killing in Karachi, https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/06/22/amjad-sabri-a-beloved-sufi-musician-is-gunned-down-in-pakistan/, dated June 22nd 2016
