Biography

The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is one of the key artists on Real World Records and certainly one of the most influential. His voice is universally recognised as one of the great voices in musical history and he was key in bringing the Qawwali music tradition to the Western world.

Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music popular in South Asia, particularly in areas with a historically ... Read more in Amazon's Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Store

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Nadim Bakhshov VINE VOICE on 14 Oct. 2008
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The opening piece is about Al-Hallaj the Sufi who was martyred on the cross. Not only is the music infectious and the rhythm and singing ecstatic but the song is about one of the greatest Muslim Sufi Mystics, the man who was so God-intoxicated he claimed 'I am God', 'I am the truth'. The orthodoxy of the day found this talk heretical and promptly had him crucified.

Then the last track: Jewleh Lal
Perhaps the best Qawwali piece I have ever heard. It has an intoxicating rhythm and musical structure and the improvisations move the ensemble to such a climax that you feel yourself lifting up towards the heavens.

Don't miss out the opportunity of picking this up.

Format: Audio CD
A nice album in all, the beauty being the third track, Dhyahar-Eh-Ishq Meh, which has a wonderful, alive rhythm. Jewleh Lal has a nice, alive soaring beat, as does the energetic Shahbaaz Qalandar.
Want my advice, this is a must for all Nusrat fans, the only downer is the amount of romantic tracks in this CD. I believe that if Nusrat had sung Akhiyan Udeek Diyan or Sanoon Ik Pal Chan or even Yeh jo Halka Halka Sarur He, this would have been his best album ever. Another downer is that he never carried out any of these songs live (except for Shahbaaz Qalandar).
Otherwise-----THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL QAWWALLI LOVERS!

In this CD all the songs are superb, Describeing what the legends have said over hundereds of years and what types of events that have been taken placed. I have a very big collection of Nusrat FAK and this CD is one of the best.

"Qawaal's Brightest Star" shines on this sampler 4 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With most CDs today carrying at least eight to thirteen tracks, the concept of buying a four track disc from a singer of Middle Eastern devotional music must seem bizarre. On this third release for Peter Gabriel's RealWorld records, the international star and musical genius Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan continues to demonstrate the beauty of Sufi devotional music (qawaal). At just under an hour, the CD displays Nusrat's flawless execution and attention to rhythmic and instrumental detail. At points breathtaking in its unexpected energy and beauty, the songs pulse with percussive energy while Nusrat and his singers weave lyrics through the instrumentation. No track stands out as of less quality than the others -- it is a uniformly superb album. "Shahbaaz" is an excellent addition to any collection, and particularly good compliment to the other RealWord releases.

Qawwalis for the drunken heart and soul ! Super stuff !!! 24 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Shahbaz is a brilliant piece of work, it is a must for all lovers of the Qawali who are able to understand the plight of Shah Mansoor in the first track and the power and jalal of shahbaz qalandar. The third track is from a poet Iqbal who turned to the sufi path after leading a life in sin and the last but not least jewleh lal takes you to the greatest heights and brings you back down again, a MUST BUY for all aspiring devotees.I loved it !

Great introduction to Pakistani music 10 July 2001
By Matthew Brandabur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the first (of many) Nusrat CDs I bought after hearing him on the Dead Man Walking soundtrack. It remains one of my favorites for a number of reasons. The tracks are relatively succinct, the audio quality is high, and the vocal improvs he does (I'm sure there's a beautiful word for it) are somehow more directed than on other records I've heard. It's trance music, and although I don't understand a single word, I am transported each time I listen. Where? Search me.

Best Sung Shahbaz Qalander 28 Jan. 2002
By Zahra Jamshed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a collection of qawwalis on Shahbaz Qalander, the well known saint from Pakistan. As the story goes, Qalanders are supposed to be in an eternal trance mode. So this selection has alot of emphasis on routing the listener to that path. The audio quality of this CD is excellent and it has one of the best sung Shahbaz Qalander. There have been other CDs as well where Nusrat had this number; but this selection leads the other ones in the music, vocals and built-in traditional element of Shahbaz Qalander. I only like two qawwalis in this selection. Still, I would highly recommend it.

The Best Qavvaalii CD ever !! 4 July 2001
By Justin Weaver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard Nusrat and Shahbaaz in Panjab and was immediately taken by this truly spectacular music. The quality of Nusrat's musicianship and vocal power defies immediate description. The only problem with this album is the total absence of information in the program notes. The lyrics aren't translated on the grounds that Qavvaalii is too esoteric for Westerners to understand -- nonsense!, I've been walked through the translation without any problems. No mention is even made of what languages (Panjabi, Urdu) the songs are in, nor the immense popularity and cultural importance in Panjab and Sindh of that most recognizable of tunes: Shahbaaz Qalandar. It's a good thing that Nusrat and his Party don't need good liner notes to earn 5-stars, heck 6... heck 17. Buy this, but surf the net for the translated lyrics and background info on the Qalandars and Sufism. Enjoy!
