PHIL SWEENEY from “The Independent” calls Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan the best and largest tenor (the highest male singing voice) and recommend him over Luciano, Placido and Jose (most Popular Opera Voices of 90’s). Author goes on to describe his collaborations and innovative experiments which Though we know pretty well that “the best tenor” tag will never be enough to sum up the huge NFAK ( In each and every possible translation of this statement). Read this article for a great take on the “New Nusrat with his Experiments & Fusion”
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan annoys purists, but he is also dragging Qawwali into the 21st century.
This is a guest post by our dear friend Mr Asim Hussain, Doft forget to check his website at http:nusratfatehalikhan.cu.cc
Touching Moments :- (1) Nusrat Saab discusses about his walid, and they all listen to his qawwali. (Some catching moments were lost due to camera focusing, Camera slowly focuses on Nusrat saabs while he is listening to his dad. And this changes/ hides the expression that might have caught on if nusrat saab’s was unaware of camera focusing.)
(2) Nusrat saab explaining Khayal, Dhrupad (Dhurpad as he calls) and sargam gayaki to the Brook, And brook goes oh yeah its like do, le, ri…() . Then nusrat saab trying to explain that some sur can be sthayi and some can be improvised (like komal, ati komal) by singing (this is what i interpreted)..
(3) When Nusrat saab, Rahat’s dad and rahat are doing riyaz. And rahat is making mistake.
(4) I love Dildar Hussain. He accompanies Nusrat saab in almost every concert.
