Srinagar: Kashmir is famous for its rich cultural heritage; one being the rich Sufi culture. To keep the legacy going, Kashmir society in collaboration with the department of floriculture organised ‘Sufiyana Mehfil’, a daylong primaeval Sufiyana musical event, to attract locals and tourists at Tulip Garden.

Performances by experienced Sufiyana singers, who belong to renowned sufiyana families from Kashmir, were the major attraction of the event.

“After a long time, we organised a Sufi music show with a purpose to increase tourism. It was a mesmerising experience to perform at Tulip Garden and touch the hearts of visitors through classical music,” said Mushtaq Saznawaz, Sufi maestro. Initiatives like Sufiyana Mehfil are aimed at bringing back tourism and reviving the historical Sufiyana music.

“I would like to thank Kashmir for organising this melodious Sufi music at this beautiful garden. I urge more and more people to visit Kashmir and enjoy its beauty, culture and music,” said Anil Tiwari, a tourist.
