Kamran Anwar took a year-long sabbatical from his finance career to create Songs of the Sufi, an award winning documentary film on classical qawwali co-produced with Dr Katherine Schofield. Driven by his passion for Qawwali and his desire to conserve classical Qawwali roots and inform others about the unknown nuances of this spiritual music genre, the film covers the history, culture and the core message of classical qawwali. Prior to this endeavour, he directed Rung, a widely acclaimed collection of traditional Qawwali CDs featuring extensive insights on the genre, performers, and Qawwali translations, each amassing 5 million+ YouTube views. He also researched and narrated Hidden Gems of Lahore, a Destinations Media series uncovering Lahore’s unique historic sites. He is a frequent speaker on art and culture and is an avid collector of miniature paintings, Indian silver, and contemporary Pakistani art.
