Worldmark community engagement concert of Nizami Bandhu in Delhi & Gurugram
As a community-driven engagement, a series of musical concerts initiated by Worldmark is warming up the hearts of music lovers. On February 24, Nizami Bandhu, as a part of the concert lineup, performed at Aerocity. On February 26, the scintillating show by the Sufi group in Gurugram stole hearts.
The festivity of Basant through the two concerts invoked the season’s beauty, colours and feeling of warmth. The audience seemed thrilled with the surprise element of petal showers on the singers and the audience. The colour of Basant, yellow, was seen all over the two venues in the form of décor and the stoles around the necks, given out to the guests as a mark of celebration. Worldmark focuses on bringing musical entertainment to its shoppers, believing that engaging with the customers by offering their likes builds a happy and supportive community.
Nizami Bandhu is considered the oldest Sufi band in the country, with Chand Nizami as the lead singer, supported by Sohrab Nizami & Shadab Nizami. The Sufi music trio are recognised for a Qawaali rendition written by the poet Amir Khusro in honour of Nizamuddin Auliya. The band scaled the internationally famous chart for its Bollywood numbers Kun Faya Kun from the film Rockstar, Kahoon Kese Sakhi and Rang from Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The Sufi singers mesmerised the audience with their pulsating performances and interactive conversation with the audience. The trio hails from the original Qawwal Bacchon Ka Gharrana and enjoys a legacy of over 700 years across generations, singing in praise of the divine. Hearing the singers adding Bhajans and patriotic fervour to their renditions was heartening. Nizamuddin Darga Pir (priest) graced the events with his presence. Dancer Vani Pawha was the special guest on February 26, Sufi evening. Some other well-known people were spotted watching the show.
