Hear some Sufi devotional music, known as Qawwali, which is mostly Pakastani & usually sung by men. Listen to the late great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Party in the WNYC studio from 1993.

Hear an hour of Sufi devotional music, mostly Pakastani and usually sung by men, known as Qawwali for this New Sounds program.   Listen to this ecstatic prayer music performed live by the late great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Party in the WNYC studio, from a November 1993 appearance.  Then there’s an arrangement of Nusrat’s “Allah Hoo” by the Brooklyn Qawwali Party, using jazz band instrumentation, recorded live from the 2009 Globalfest.
