British singer Tanya Wells’ just sang the very popular and all-time favourite “Dama Dam Mast Qalandar” in a very informal way by giving the performance on the street of Dubai.
She sang the famous Qawwali alongside her twin sister Nicki Well-Turya. Both Tanya and Nicki sang “Char Cheragh Tere” with just a man playing guitar to add little more charm to the performance.

The British singer Tanya’s love for Qawwalis is not hidden from anyone as she said once herself that, “she has grown up listening to the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.” Also she informed that, “she was learning Urdu.”
Tanya has several times visited Pakistan and sung different Qawwalis; she has also crooned Mehdi Hassan’s songs.
Tanya’s favourite singer is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan as he is the king of Qawwali and has given so many masterpieces.
However, this British singer also remarked on her Dama Dam Mast Qalandar’s viral video via Facebook that, “We stopped on the street in Dubai to make a few people smile by playing their music. Had no idea that a week later this video would be shared to me with an insane amount of views. The crazy world of the internet!!”
People after listening to the British singer’s version of “Dama Dam Mast Qalandar” filled with joy and praised her and Nicki alot for their totally amazing singing skills.

TO BE HONEST!
Before this street performance, Tanya has sung “Laal Meri” in a proper stage performance too and certainly it was super awesome.
She has also sung ghazals and hits like “Aaj Jane Ki Zid Na karo”, “Duniya Kisi Kay Pyar Mein”, “Gulon Main Rang Bhare” and many others.
She has got this magic in her voice and can melt many hearts by her awe-inspiring singing skills. Pakistanis all the way love Tanya because of her obsession with Urdu Ghazals, Qawwalis and how amazingly she sings them. More power to you, girl!
