Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Michael BrookReal World
Released: 26th July 2019
For the first time on vinyl this is a reissue of 1996’s legendary Grammy-nominated album Night Song. The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is today acknowledged as the greatest master of the mystical music of Qawwali and on Night Song he works in collaboration with Canadian producer/guitarist/soundtrack composer Michael Brook (U2, Brian Eno). On this accessible and inspirational album Brook brings ear fluttering sub-bass, fraying guitar tones, rich Hammond Organ and harmonium to Nusrat’s
extraordinary, ecstatic vocals.
This is truly one of the classic statements crossing musical boundaries, described by Billboard as ‘A work of great beauty…an album for the ages, defying genre and solidifying Khan’s stature as one of the world’s pre-eminent singers.’
