The Drum, the UK’s Premier Intercultural Arts Centre based in Aston, are inviting you to an incredible night of devotional music and appreciation, as they celebrate the timeless works and musical legacy of Qawwali master Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan at The Annual Ustad Fateh Ali Khan Tribute Concert on Friday 19th September at 7pm. 

  

This year marks the seventeenth anniversary of the death of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, revered as one of the all-time greatest masters of Sufi devotional music Qawwali. Popularly known as “Shahenshah-e-Qawwali” – “The King of Kings of Qawwali” – Khan was beloved for his sensational passion, intensely powerful, charismatic performances, and extraordinary vocal range, often performing uninterrupted for over ten hours.

 

Releasing scores of albums, touring extensively across Europe, India, Japan, Pakistan, and the U.S.A, and collaborating with dozens of Eastern and Western artists, Khan is widely credited with popularising Qawwali music among international audiences, and is also regarded as one of the first “world music” artists.

 

His disciple Ansar Khalid spent years training at the feet of this great teacher, and every year brings together a breath-taking variety of local and national artists to pay tribute to the late great Ustad. This year Ansar will perform alongside an extraordinary ensemble of musicians to recreate some of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s unforgettable Qawwali sound, along with his own original compositions infused with his master’s skill and passion. For any fan of Qawwali, or sheer musical beauty, this is a night not to be missed.
