Ali Abbas, an upcoming Asian singer-song writer/poet/composer hailing from the heart of East London. In this melting pot of diverse cultures, young Ali was expo...sed to various genres of world music. Now, with a street sense and credibility, he not only blends in with the young Urban crowd but his music (which is heavily influenced by traditional sub-continental Sufi mystic music or Qawwali) somehow manages to appeal to and bridge gaps between the elder generation.

Aside from his vocal ability, Ali is a Spoken Word Poet (alias “Ali Selassie”). Performing his work in his native language (Punjabi) in several venues across the capital (London), his style of reciting his poetry raw enables one to truly capture the flavour of his beloved mother tongue. For ease of understanding his work, he amalgamates that same poem in its equivalent English translation maintaining equal flow and rhythm.

Ali will be releasing his first single on VIP Records in 2012!
