This is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in his full glory...
...with his regular accompanists of family members and friends, giving free rein to his truly exceptional vocal expression on the ghazal and qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufi. R2 (Rock n Reel) Magazine (UK)
The music exemplifies perfectly what qawwali music is all about.This is utterly sublime music that has been expertly crafted by the inspirational musicianship of Nusrat's intimate group and headed by the maestro himself. In qawwali music Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has no equal (in the modern era at least). An equivalent musician of such exalted stature might be Grand Maître Franco from the Congo, or Nigeria's Ransome Fela Kuti and that is truly some company to be compared with.UK Vibe
...after a decade or more of imitators, it is absolutely delightful......to hear the real thing again - the maestro at the height of his powers...Songlines Magazine (UK)
...the elevation in spirit intended by this mystical and inspirational music needs no translating.Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was the man who brought the Sufi devotional music Qawwali to the masses thanks to extraordinary voice that transcended cultural barriers with its beauty and power. recordcollectormag.com (UK)
The artistry of his accompanying Party is faultless......a perfect balance of tabla drums, harmonium melodies, handclaps and ensemble singing. But this is simply the frame for the masterpiece itself - the great man's outstanding voice.World Music Central Online (UK)
