In remembrance of the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who would have turned 71 years old yesterday, we compiled a list of qawaali’s we enjoy even today.
Here’s a playlist that will change your life – we aren’t kidding. Jeff Buckley once said NFAK’s music saved him from depression. We love how music and people have the power to save us without them even knowing it. He also referred to him as his Elvis and sampled his music with vocals at his own concerts.
Here are our 7 favourite qawaali’s by the legend:
Tumhe Dillagi Bhool Jaanay Pareygi
Halka Halka Suroor
Mere Rashke Qamar
Tere Bin Nahi Lagda
Saanson Ki Maala
