When you think about a genre of music many names come to a person's mind. For instance, when someone thinks about pop names like faakhir, haroon, adnan sami, and sonu nigam come to their mind. But there is only one name when someone thinks about qawwali: NUSRAT FATEH ALI KHAN. He is undoubtly the greatest qawwal to set foot on this earth. His voice goes deep inside a person and pull something out right from the heart. It's been more than 12 years since he passed away but till this day you can still hear people blasting his music and praising his talent. There have also been some songs of his that have been remastered and are out for the public. One of my favorites these days is Tere Bin Dil Na Lage from the indian film traffic signal [video on below]. Legends live forever but there can never be a greater legend than Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Himself.
Khan comes from a legendary Qawwal family who an unbroken tradition of qawwali for over 6 centuries.
