This Rough Guide brings us a collection of the world's most revered Qawwali singer's greatest tracks. Known as Shahen-Sha,'the brightest of stars', Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has been sorely missed since his death in 1997. This album is a tribute and introduction to one of world music's most well loved and extraordinary figures. He continues to be idolised in his home country of Pakistan, across the Asian diaspora and succeeded in taking his music to a huge Western audience. This album is the fourth in the series charting the careers of world music's seminal artists and is the essential introduction to this great man's work.
'A worthy introduction to one of the greatest voices of the 20th century.' Songlines
