AllMusic Review by

In Pakistan, only Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a more popular qawwal than the Ali brothers, who claim descent from the 13th-century Tanras Khan. They sing "Man Kunto Maula," which begins every meeting of their Sufic order, and several traditional and contemporary compositions. This is contemporary qawwali at its best, well-served by the recording and the thorough notes.
