“Soz-khwani”, “Nauha-khwani” and “Marsia-khwani” are the poetic, musical, and dramatic description and expressions of a battle against tyranny in Karbala. These poetic and musical forms are beautiful expressions of human emotions weaved in Awadhi symbols, narration of life and culture. These Art forms are performed traditionally during the month of Muharram. Muharram is month of mourning for Shia Muslims. These forms are performed during the religious gatherings in an event called the “Majalis” where people gather for mourning for the sacrifices made in Karbala.
These Art forms have really been important traditions of Awadh in terms of classical Awadhi, Urdu and some Persian poetic forms. Soz-khwani andNauha-khwani are also very much part of the folk music traditions of Awadh though not widely appreciated as they have been closely associated to personal religious beliefs and traditions. The compositions especially for Soz-Khwani are based on the Ragas.

These Art forms were part of many Shia family traditions in Awadh but now there are very few families who are still holding these traditions and Art forms. The family Askari comes from belongs to a ‘Qasba’ (town) situated in the heart of Awadh called Mustafabad in Raebareli district. The family has been practicing and has preserved these Art forms in a similar way like any other oral cultural traditions. But now there are very few in our generation who are practicing these classical forms.
