Product description

Amazon.co.uk

At the time of his death in 1997, the Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was the acknowledged master of qawwali, a classical form derived from the mystical Islamic traditions of Sufism which, although ostensibly devotional, includes elements of the ecstatic and profane: sacred love as metaphor for earthly desire. The song structures, traditionally consisting of long, hypnotically repetitious instrumentals which serve as a setting for vocal improvisations around a brief lyric, are closer to jazz than to western classical music: the CD's 18-minute final track is a wonderful example of the qawwal's slow build-up to a dynamic, ecstatically inventive crescendo. Rapture compiles music from 15 years of recordings for the UK label Oriental Star, and is a useful introduction to the earlier, more traditional examples of Nusrat's huge body of work--the last few years of his life saw him collaborating with Canadian guitarist and producer Michael Brook and with Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam (for the Dead Man Walking soundtrack). With the exception of "Sab Vird Karo Allah Allah" which suffers from a syrupy, Bollywood-esque production, the songs gathered here are thrilling testament to the huge range and dynamic power of Nusrat's voice--evidence enough for his status not only in Pakistan, but the world over. --Burhan Tufail
