Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was and is still very much considered to be one of the greatest Qawwals singer of qawwali music in the world; not only recognized as a legend in his native Pakistan he also took his musical messages of peace, love and spirituality to the international stage, earning him the title of Pakistan's premier ambassador of Qawwali music. Dubbed by many as the 'Elvis of the East' and the 'Bob Marley of Pakistan' these titles are not without foundation; he has sold more albums than Elvis and reached as many hearts and souls and crossed as many cultural and spiritual boarders as Bob Marley with his unique mix of poetic eastern spiritual and western musical themes. This inspiring tribute to a legend of our time has been created by highly regarded London based producer and composer Gaudi, himself no stranger to crossing boundaries and forging links using the music of the world. Included in his impressive discography is the soundtrack for Hanif Kureishi's hit stage-play "My Beautiful Laundrette" a soundtrack richly woven with the cultural traditions of Pakistani music. The overall essence of the album blends elements of Reggae - the international music of peace and love with dub, electronica and traditional instrumentation and modern production techniques creating a sound that is in turns, up-lifting, haunting, moving and warming. The task of creating a work that will carry the voice of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to new audiences around the world as well as his huge existing fan base, has been achieved without a doubt in this timeless collection of songs.
