Kwantlen Polytechnic University welcomes Sufi singer Sain Zahoor Ahmed to its Surrey campus this week.

Ahmed, from Pakistan, has performed traditional music from the Sufi branch of Islam for audiences around the world. In 2006, he was recognized as the “best BBC voice of the year.”

Wednesday, Ahmed will be awarded an honorarium and recognized for his contributions to Sufi music at the university’s Cedar Building (12666 72 Ave.).

The evening – which gets underway at 6:30 p.m. – includes a discussion with the university’s visiting history instructor, Dr. Almas Zakiuddin. In addition to discussing his journey, his career as a singer and stories from his life, Ahmed will answer audience questions.
