Tahir Qawwal  NEVADA CITY, CA
Join our ensemble Fanna-Fi-Allah on a awe inspiring adventure into the sacred sufi shrines, where qawwali reverberates day & night, dervishes whirl in ecstasy, devotional tears fall & seekers are drawn into trance . Come chat with dozens of the top qawwali master musicians, poets, authors & saints. Let your heart be moved as we present the music of qawwali in the highest quality video ever seen & heard in its traditional setting. 
After 15 years of studying this music in Pakistan & India with the greatest in the field, its our humble duty to treat the world to a special glimpse into this tradition. Being the first American qawwali group, we've had the unique opportunity to bridge this distant music culture with the west. Muslim Pakistan & India are often misunderstood, with so much negative media circulating incessantly. But there is a gem of great value that lies deep within this foreign land, that gem is called qawwali.

What is this money to be used for? It appears that the film is already completed. I know that it takes a lot of money to get a film into festivals and get it distributed, but it would help to see more explanation of what you will use it for. Also, how can people see the movie? Will donors have a chance to get a download at some point? I ask these questions with the intention of helping you to attract more donations for this beautiful film.
