---In a world increasingly being dominated by extremist and radical ideologies, faith is being used to propagate hatred and divide people.

'Vishwaas Ki Goonj - The Echo Of Faith' brings to us the universal message of all religions and conveys mankind's ability to practice and uphold the notion of 'oneness of beings'.

Ustad Meraj Ahmed Nizami Qawwal belongs to the community of the Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, birthplace of qawwali and tomb of its founders.

He owns the kalifa of the lineage of the Qawwal Bacche, sons of the original qawwal singers trained by Amir Khusro. His family continued the tradition over 700 years and 30 generations.

Ustad Meraj Ahmad Nizami started his training in classical music as a child, under the rigorous tutelage of his father, Ustad Yaqub Ali Khan (Piarey Khan Sahib). Today, he is in charge of the Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah in Delhi and has been performing at the Dargah of Sufi Hazrat Inayat Khan every week for the past 40 years.

Ustad Meraj Nizami's memory is as legendary as his knowledge of languages and poetry. He knows over a thousand qawwali's and many more poems by heart in many languages: Arabic, Persian, Hindi, Urdu, etc. He masters various genres of classical music, such as Dhrupad, Khayal, Tarana, Thumri and Dadra, which he blends beautifully during his performances of Qawwali. His style of singing is at once tender, direct and pure.
