Faiz Ali Faiz comes from a family of qawwals from seven generations in Pakistan. He started his professional career in 1978, at age 16, creating at the same time his own qawwali ensemble. Though Faiz is from Lahore, he practices the doaba style from eastern Pakistan. He stated in recent interviews he has been influenced by Sham-Chaurasi, a famous Khayal singing school where Ustad Salamat Ali Khan belongs to. Faiz's voice is well known by its large range and a specially rich tone which reminds Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the legendary Qawwali singer who has been his revered inspiration and whose compositions he enjoys singing.
In spite of its youth for a qawwal, Faiz Ali meets a success growing near its listeners.
