Damian Lazarus’s musical quest has seen him joining forces with Qawwali singers Fareed Ayaz, Abu Muhammad and Hamza Akram, all together going by “Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons”, coming up with a lively, energetic and powerful piece of music, titled ‘Lover’s Eyes (Mohe Pi Ki Najariya)’, where the modernity of Tech-House and the tradition and sacredness of Qawwali singing become – on their hands- a match made in musical heaven.
Qawwali, the South-Asian sacred musical form based in Sufi Muslim poetry, which aims to induce a state of spiritual ecstasy, is -on its most traditional form-, anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes long (however sometimes going well beyond that time-frame). For the occasion, Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons provided an over seven-minute delivery that is poised, with its unparalleled mix of ancient and modern, to gather the reverence of club-goers around the globe.
