Dear Nusrat Lovers,
Nusrat: A voice from heaven is one of finest tributes to the most beautiful voice of this century. An amazing attempt by an italian film-maker Giuseppe Asaro to reflect on the life of King of Qawwali Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. In this documentary you will see many rare behind the scene glimpses into Nusrat’s life.
“It just seemed like, the music would start and something would open in him and this beautiful sound would come out … its just fantastic.” – Rick Rubin, President of American Recordings.
“There is an element in Qawwali, I think part of the goal is to induce ecstasy in people, as it is in Gospel Music. I think they are very similar actually. And I think in order to do that there needs a high degree of passion.” – Michael Brook
You will see interviews with musicians and pop icons who have worked with khan saab. This film also demonstrates Nusrat’s leading role as an ambassador of world music by including segments of concert footage, from shows for college students in Berkeley, California, to a gathering of Sufis in Pakistan.
