Live at WOMAD 1985

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Live at WOMAD 1985 is a remarkable record of a magical event that changed the perception of Sufi music to a wider audience and set Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on a path to international recognition of his genius. The recording of this landmark concert, unheard for 34 years, has been carefully restored from the original analogue tapes. The power and beauty of Nusrat’s voice comes rushing back through the years and lifts us up to the ecstatic heights of Sufi expression.
