Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan ( Urdu: نصرت فتح على خاں,), was a Pakistani musician, primarily a singer of Qawwali the devotional music of the Sufis (a mystical tradition within Islam)
Nusrat's family has an unbroken tradition of performing Qawwali for approximately 600 years.


  1. I discovered him on the "Dead Man Walking" soundtrack and was fascinated. An album od his called, I think, "Live in Paris," finds him in his best voice--it has a version of "Naat" that is gorgeous.
