For this New Sounds, there's new music from Gaudi & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Near the 10th anniversary of the death of the great Pakistani singer, Anglo-Italian producer Gaudi takes early vocal tracks by Nusrat and marries them to contemporary dance beats not too far removed from the traditional dance beats of Pakistani qawwali music. Also, Nusrat's collaborations with Michael Brook, Eddie Vedder, and Peter Gabriel. Plus, music from the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Qawwali Party itself.

Thank you both. Marja, it almost seems unfair of me, accepting plaudits for a show full of Nusrat's music, as he is the one who did all the real work. But thanks anyway!

Pam, I'm not sure how many of Nusrat's texts are available, but that's an interesting suggestion. I'll look around for next time...

John--From a long-time listener:
You could take your shows on Kahn to the next level by getting his songs translated and putting the the translations on this page.

BTW, the new webpage looks great! Congrats.
