The duo went to Jalandhar to perform in Harballabh Sangeet Sammelan but was not allowed to sing due to their appearance. Disappointed they decided to make a musical offering at the Harballabh temple, where an executive of All India Radio, Jalandhar, spotted them and recorded their first song. Wadli’s sing in qawwali, gurbani, kaafi, ghazal, bhajans and Sufiana forms of music. They live in their ancestral house in Guru Di Wadali and teach music to those who promise to preserve it. They do not charge their disciples and lead a very simple life devoted to the divine one. They believe in Sufi tradition deeply.
They consider themselves as mediums through which the preaching of great saints has to be passed on to others. They have never indulged commercially and they have only a handful of recording to their name. They believe in singing freely as homage to the divine one. They both do not feel very comfotable in using electronic gadgets in their music and stress on Alaap and Taans.
They believe that spiritual heights can only be attained if you sing unreservedly, in a free atmosphere. Recently they stepped into the world of films with Pinjar in which they have added divine dimensions to the pain of Partition, by rendering music director and writer Gulzar’s soulful lyrics in their "mystical" style. Also on cards is a documentary, which the Discovery Channel is planning to make on them. they are very near to god and one can never even imagine of compairing their singing with any other singer or artist. they are a class apart and their simplicity and down to erarth nature still stand tall among the modern day trends of jazz, pop, club mixes and semi nude videos.
you feel totally lost when you listen to such a divine voice. and to top all they never demand for attention, you never see them spending lavishly. briefly, they are the most genuine human beings in the field of music. we are happy that they have brought lakhwinder into this field who is also very talented and we can expect some good music for the coming few decades.GOD BLESS THEM.
