Some Facts
Considered one of the greatest singers ever recorded. He possessed a six-octave vocal range and could perform at a high-level of intensity for several hours.
Brother of Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan and uncle of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
His family have been musicans and singers of Qawwali (Islamic devotional music) for six centuries. Nusrat's father, himself a singer, died in 1964 when Nusrat was about 16. His father had wanted his son to become a doctor because Qawwali is a very challenging style to learn. Ten days after his father's death, Nusrat had a dream where his father came to him and told him to sing, touching his throat. Nusrat woke up singing, and gave his first public performance at his father's funeral ceremony forty days later.
Holds the world's record (verified by the Guinness Book of World Records) for the biggest recording output by a Qawwali artist (a total of 125 albums of recorded music).
