Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan


If you've spent your entire life listening to Conspiracy-dominated "Top 40" radio, then you have no idea what you're missing! There's a whole world of rhythm, feeling, and emotion expressed through music out there, but the vast majority of this music never reaches the ears of the American radio audience because that music doesn't sell millions of records. Your so-called "alternative" and "contemporary" music stations are just like all the rest: they play the same twelve songs a thousand times a day, instead of daring to take chances with artists who play for the feeling rather than to make money. This is where world music comes in, and the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in particular. Nusrat was one of the foremost practitioners of qawwali, the Islamic music of spirit and celebration. His joy and exultation comes through with his music, no matter what language you speak. Even if you don't know his words, you can't help but move to his rhythms, and your spirit will soar. Give world music a try and take a chance or two, and expand your musical horizons.
