A short french documentary short in Mid 90’s on the Reunion Islan, You will see NFAK singing in exotic and beautiful locations, sea beaches, roof-tops and surprisingly in a swimming pool too.

What Makes Nusrat’s music great ? Organic compositions, Hypnotic Improvizations and ofcours the Kalams of great Sufi’s…
They are more than just melodies… they are the answers to biggest of your problems, ways through your scariest fears and the conduits to your redemption
The term ” first contact” is often used when a new life-form is discovered in Alien Movies. This Concert performance of NFAK was nothing less than ” The First Contact” of the french audience present in the crowd with Music of “Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan”. When coming out of the concert, most of them felt deeply moved or even transported to different reality (as they themselves reported), the last two hours were imprinted on their lives forever….
Before I post the audio and video links to this performance, lets first talk about this concert in particular and why I feel that it’s best ever. First, NFAK was in his best improvisation mood that day, placed in front of a almost french crowd, who he knew wouldn’t understand a word he utters, sargams and fireworks were the best he could do, and it lead to some of the best improvisations ever.
An awesome concert with crowd going mad with each performance (Thanks to Mirza Waleed for this treasure), Not an official Recording, taken back sometime in 1990.. Enjoy..
