Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the Pakistani singer who introduced many Westerners to Sufi devotional songs, has become almost synonymous with Pakistani music, especially since his death in 1997. As we hear, he could be nothing less than mesmerizing in long, spectacular stretches of nonverbal vocalizing. We also hear selections by Tarafs de Haidouks from Romania (pictured) and Tarika from Madagascar, among others.
