This year we wanted a similar gift & there was no better time to reify our long thought idea of an Exclusive Nusrat Store , where fans can buy Artwork, Clothing, Books, & Memorabilia. It’s time to relive Nusrat in a whole new way.
To begin with we have added two paintings by the most expressive artist who has painted NFAK ever. You can pre-order them now & pay when the painting are released next week. We have also added a t-shirts and literature section; will be releasing them this month too.

I have not heard Tansen & Baiju Bawra & Tana Riri
Nor have I seen Deepak Raag lighting up lamps and Raag Megh bringing thunder & rains

And yet when I hear you sing Oh Nusrat, I realize, how futile it is to define the depth of your voice, the purity of your devotion, the completeness of your bhava, the speed at which you touch and move hearts, the Karuna that makes us all weep as you sing
