Aminah has become a leading force in the art of the traditional Qawwali genre of tabla. Her studies took her under the wing of the lineage holder Ustad Dildar Hussain (28 years playing for the legend of Pakistan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan).
As the first western and first woman disciple of this genre, Aminah has become a revolutionist by changing the boundaries of women, by being accepted by the community of a 1000-year-old lineage. She has sat where no woman has ever sat or maybe will ever sit.
