Nusrat Fateh Ali’s Qawali Singing by Talented Boys
Those who had the good fortune to see or hear the Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in the 1980’s and 1990’s still remember the overwhelming intensity of the experience.
Committed to the cause of promotion, preservation and advancement of music, fine arts and literature from Pakistan, Sharif Awan of Tehzeeb Foundation, talks about Khan sahib’s profound impact on taking the 600-year-old Qawwali tradition to the international audiences.
A hardcore Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan fan, Awan has collected all his musical works recorded, produced and released abroad over the years. Referring to the pure genius and humility of the late Ustad, Awan describes Khan sahib as a thinker of Qawwali art and Sufi to the core.
Qawwal Abu Muhammad remembers Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan as a man of few words and great commitment. Abu Muhammad of the Qawwal Bachon Ka Gharana of Delhi believes Khan through his hard work in a short life became one of the greats of Qawwali whose contributions to the promotion of the art are still incomparable.
