She is a close student of the great tabla master, Ustad Dildar Hussein Khan, and as the percussionist for the Sufi Qawwali ensemble, Fanna-fi-Allah, she made history as the first woman initiated into the ancient Qawwali lineage. In this lively conversation Jai Dev and Aminah discuss her colorful life, filled with enchanting characters, inspiring mentors, and her mystic journeys powered by music and sound.
