As the Jamat is aware, tickets for Sufi Voyage, a Jubilee Concert to be held in Lisbon on the evening of 10 July, are now sold out. We are pleased to announce that a second Sufi Voyage concert has been added to the schedule
The additional concert will be held on the afternoon of 10 July at the Altice Arena and tickets will go on sale this Wednesday, 20 June at 3 PM Lisbon time.

Sufi Voyage will feature the “King of Qawwali” Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and the musical talents of Salim-Sulaiman, coming together in a must-see performance that will include Bollywood, folk, popular songs, and qawwali — a devotional music style of Muslim mystics.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, nephew of the late legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, is also known for his playback songs in the Bollywood and Pakistani film industries.
Salim-Sulaiman were inspired by their father Sadruddin Merchant, who previously led the Ismaili Scouts Orchestra in India. Salim-Sulaiman have been composing music for over a decade and have also collaborated with South African singer Loyiso Bala and Kenyan singer and songwriter Eric Wainaina to record the anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
This unique combination of artists will be joined by one of Tajikistan’s foremost musicians, Nobovar Chanorov, whose band is known as the Beatles of Tajikistan. This unprecedented combination of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Salim-Sulaiman, and Nobovar will mark the completion of the year-long Jubilee Concerts.
In addition to Sufi Voyage, tickets are still available for Kings of Rhythm, a Jubilee Concert to be held on the evening of 5 July, featuring internationally renowned artists Cheb Khaled and the dynamic duo of Vishal-Shekhar.
Cheb Khaled, or simply “Khaled,” is an Algerian-born Francophone artist who has entertained millions of fans globally with legendary songs, and is one of the best-selling Arab artists in history.
Vishal-Shekhar are one of Bollywood’s most entertaining music directors and artists. The combination of Khaled and Vishal-Shekhar brings to Lisbon an unparalleled evening of musical performance that will set the celebratory mood for the week-long historic celebration.
