Tribute to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
If you are tired with the number of English rock and jazz gigs in the city and are looking for some traditional South Asian music, head down to blueFROG this Sunday where the qawwali duo of Rizwan and Muazzam are holding a tribute concert for their uncle, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. They will be accompanied by five other singers and will perform in the traditional style by sitting on the floor rather than on chairs. The group is known for their stage performance and the intensity with which they present this Sufi form of music. Coming from a family of traditional singers, the duo of Rizwan and Mauzzam first showcased their skills at the WOMAD festival in UK in 1998 and were most recently a part of the TV series Coke Studio Pakistan.
