Acclaimed singer and author Ali Sethi performs at Misaq e Ishq, at the Ismaili Centre London.
On a cold and crisp winter evening, a buzz of anticipation filled the air as crowds filtered into the social hall at the Ismaili Centre on 16 January for Misaq e Ishq — an evening of poetry, music, and storytelling on the theme of love.
The ensemble weaved together a selection of well-known qawwali, original compositions, poems, and stories from a variety of cultural traditions.

The songs and stories of the Middle East and South Asia are infused with sensations, fragrances, tastes, and colours; the depth of which were conveyed by Harvard Professor Ali Asani, and Pakistani singer and author Ali Sethi, in a unique format at the Ismaili Centre London.
