Complete list of tracks
Nusratís brand of music is completely inimitable. Powerful vocals soaring above the beat of the tablas and dholaks in the background, his kind of devotional music tends to heighten oneís state of spiritual awareness. A most potent power is unleashed as the listener is drawn into a trance as he sways and moves to the products of Nusratís God given gifts-His voice, His tune.
Although accompanied by his band of loyal performers its more his voice than music that has brought him praise from unexpected quarters. Peter Gabriel a long time friend and admirer after working with him on the soundtrack of Martin Scorceseís Last Temptation of Christ felt that there is ďmore intensity from Nusratís voice than any other singer aliveĒ. Itís this intensity and consistency that has earned him lifetime achievement awards in France, Japan and Pakistan.
His international acclaim keeps growing even after his death. The reason behind this is that Pakistanís most famous sufi qawwal has from time to time managed to infuse sounds of dance with the classical form of qawwali. Such diversity and experimentation has caught the eye of numerous renowned figures worldwide. The artist had collaborated with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Eddie Veddor, Bally Sagoo, Jawed Akhtar, and Massive Attack, to name a few. Now through EMI itís your turn to acquaint yourself with the some of the best music the maestro had produced.
