Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
Released 28 July 2017
The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is today acknowledged as the great master of Qawwali who popularised this beautiful and inspirational music beyond Muslim peoples to a worldwide audience and into a whole new musical territory. Mustt Mustt shows Nusrat’s willingness to experiment with his music – to strive for new ideas and to listen to new styles – and to create more contemporary albums that could sit alongside the traditional collection.
Available for the first time on vinyl since its original release in 1990. Also comes with a 16bit CD quality digital download card.
You don’t have to understand the foreign tongues to appreciate the ecstatic quality of Nusrat’s voice, as he chops up words and phrases in long, flowing linest.
As a bonus, the reissue includes Massive Attack’s famous trip-hop remix of the title track, which became the first record sung in Urdu to make the British charts.
