To me this is by far Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's most fruitul collaboration. And its an incredible album in its own right. Michael Brook has struck exactly the right note in his soundscapes that compliment Nusrat Fateh Ali's vocals perfectly. Its not Qawaali, or ghazaal, or ambient or 'world' music. This does not fit any established genre, but it truly is the meeting of two masterful musicians and a fusion of two musical cultures to form something wonderful in its own right. My personal favourite of the tracks is the opening 'My heart, my Life'. Its so simple, so elegant, yet so powerful in its ability to evoke an emotional response. To me its an affirmation of life itself.
Couldn't recommend this more. Its brilliant.
