It is no wonder then that this genre has gripped the attention of each musician that has joined the group. It is the party’s goal to re-familiarize audiences in the United States with this unique musical style. The songs which constitute the qawwali repertoire are mostly in Urdu and Punjabi (almost equally divided between the two), although there are several songs in Brajbhasha and Persian. The poetry is implicitly understood to be spiritual in its meaning and the central themes are love, devotion and longing (for the Divine).
