Ali Brothers Group (Painting A young Nusrat)

Ali Brothers

Ali Brothers(aka Patiala Boys) are a group of young(13-15 years) Punjabi talents from Patiala Gharana. They sure do live up to the name of their ancestors and Gharana. At such a tender age they recreate the great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan hits with unmatchable beauty…and the best part is their names .. two of them are “Pervez”, great irony right!..

Though calling their effort a rendition is not much correct as they pretty much sing what NFAK sang, their inspirations, aspirations and bravery is still incomparable…. They are exactly the result of what Nusrat always wanted… He must be very happy seeing them from heaven.

The Biggest Celebrity Fans of NFAK — Malkit Singh

Malkit Singh Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Malkit Singh – The Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Fan

We all know and love Malkit Singh for  the songs “Gur Nalo Ishq Mita”, “Tootak Tootak Tootiyan”, “Kurri Garam Jayee”, “Dekh li vilyait”, as well as “Chal Hun,” and “Jind Mahi” from the blockbuster Bend It Like Beckham film soundtrack.

Malkit Sing was obsessed with NFAK from late 80’s but could never get a chance to see the man himself. He kept asking people around him so make it possible as soon as possible, and the big day came as a surprise. It was a Sunday afternoon in early 1990 when he got a call from Mohammad Ayyub from Oriental star Agency for a meeting. When Malkit reached there , he was surprised, it was NFAK sitting there waiting for him…. What happened next..

Malkit was over-whelmed with emotions ” It was like Eklavya meeting his great guru, his musical god.” He touched NFAk’s feet and couldn’t dare to sit on chair (on same lever with NFAK), so he sat dawn near NFAK legs … saying the obvious ” I am you biggest fan” , NFAK replied back “I am your fan too , I loved your song Kuri Kad Ke Kalja, you took some awesome places” .. Malkit was speechless , such a great personality and so down to earth. He even went on to ask NFAK to accept him in his Chorus (he wanted to sit and clap behind NFAK) …

When NFAK died, Malkit left his concert in middle (how could he sing), he went to Airport and carried NFAK’s body from Stretcher to his shoulder … he followed his emotional and traditional obligations…

 

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Live At Barbican Centre London 1993 Full Concert DVD

Barbican Centre, London

Those who attended this Concert at Barbican, London 19 years back still argue that is was Nusrat’s best.

I personally remember this recording because of the awesome Audio that actually produces a Concert Effect right in your Bedroom….. This concert was also the first live performance of “Dosto Ki Shaikayat karu mai” and a very different “Allah Hoo” & ” Akhiyan Udeek Diya” . The end piece ” Mast Kalandar ” simply leaves you pleading for more…

So sit back, Relax & dont forget to switch off the lights to get complete concert effect..
