SXSW Music: Wahid Allan Faqir
You couldn’t help but notice Wahid Allan Faqir as he walked through the crowd prior to Friday’s showcase at the Russian House. Dressed in colorful scarves and a peacock-tailed turban, he emanated spiritual joy before sounding a note. He playfully engaged the audience as his quartet tuned up, making funny faces and gestures for the shutterbugs.
