Abida Parveen

Over two and a half extraordinary hours at The Bridgewater Hall, Abida Parveen showed exactly how she earned the title of the world’s greatest Sufi singer. Audiences danced, sang and shouted their love and appreciation for this inspirational performer, who returned to MIF13 the following evening for a special concert of music written by Sir John Tavener.

‘Such is the power and strength of this woman’s vocal cords you don’t need to know about Sufism or understand the languages she sings in to appreciate an amazing gift’ Manchester Evening News
