Traditional-classical music from Pakistan by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was born in 1948 in Faisalabad, Pakistan. Khan became the most famous interpreter of qawwali music, music deeply rooted in Islamic Sufism. A tradition passed down from father to son, Nusrat’s family has been playing the music for over six hundred years. In addition to his striking appearance (Khan weighed about 150 kilos), he stood out for his enormous reach and long strokes. Western listeners discovered Khan’s music because it often appeared on movie soundtracks. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan died in 1997 at the age of 48 after a cardiac arrest.
