Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan performing Haq Ali Ali ( Ali Maula Ali) at Womadelaide (WOMAD at Adelaide (Australia) ) at his best blending great classical tunes into Hypnotic Qawwali rhythms. We Heartly Thank, kallashah (Original Uploader) for this great treasure..
NFAK without doubt remained the most loved act of the three day festival (24-26th Fab 1995). Here is what a reviewer had to say
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan , the Qawwali maestro with a voice that soared to the heavens and who was the hit of the 1992 festival, finished off the nights festivities on stage one at around 11: 20 pm. After the Cruel Sea, to listen to Nusrat’s powerful voice , complimented by the usual backing of intense vocalists, fervent drumming and clapping and accompanied by the insistent harmonium , was enough to get anyone to become closer to whatever power has created this strange and twisted universe of ours. It was a joyous experience. I seem to remember that they had created an avenue down the middle of the audience in front of stage one ( this would be bloody hard to achieve nowadays , but they did it then as I have seen a photo of it somewhere ) and I remember standing for a few moments watching this giant of a man ( not only in musical terms as Nusrat was enormously fat ) , surrounded by his musical acolytes and thinking that there could be no better spot to be on the planet . Womadelaide 1995 became more than memorable because of him.
We once again Thank, kallashah (Original Uploader) for this great treasure.. you can expect more from this concert soon..
