Eshan Amin Khalani: Ali Ali Mawla Ali #ImamatDay2020

Dancing is my passion! It is something I enjoy doing the most. Combining dance with devotional music praising Mawla Ali and his nur, puts me in a spiritual mood which is hard for me to put in words. All I do instead, is put on the music, and let the lyrics, and music carry out my spiritual emotions. Eshan Amin Khalani

Eshan Amin Khalani, 11 year old from Glenview (Chicago), USA is a “star” in making. His passion for dancing has made him famous within Ismaili community in Chicago.
