BRIEF INTRODUCTION OF WADALI BROTHERS
The Wadali Brothers – Padamshree Ustad Puranchand Wadali and Ustad Pyarelal Wadali – are Sufi singers and musicians from Guru Ki Wadali in the Amritsar District in Punjab, India. Born into the fifth generation of musicians given to singing the messages of Sufi saints.
The Wadali Brothers sing in the Gurbani, Kafi, ghazal and bhajan genres of music. They live in their ancestral house in Guru Ki Wadali and teach music to those who promise to preserve it. They do not charge their disciples and lead a very simple life devoted to the divine one.
They believe in the Sufi tradition deeply. They consider themselves as a medium through which the preaching of great saints is passed on to others. They have never indulged commercially, and they have only a handful of recordings to their name (mostly from live concerts). They believe in singing freely as homage to the divine one. They do not feel very comfortable in using electronic gadgets in their music and stress on Alap and Taans. They believe that spiritual heights can only be attained if you sing unreservedly, in a free atmosphere.
