Qawwali, the prominently Muslim North Indian art form, is sung mainly to bring spiritual excitement. It is connected with khyal, a north Indian classical form of vocal music. Amir Khusrau is considered to be the founder of khyal. One among the crew sings the song, while the others accompany the performer with clapping sounds or with Harmonium usually combined with dholak and tabla. Now this art form has emerged as a popular entertainment. It is usually performed at modern weddings and on concert platforms.
