Sufi singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is largely responsible for the fusion ‘world music’ as we know it. He took his musical heritage and collaborated with countless musicians and toured extensively, and was solely responsible for making the world familiar with the magic of the mystical Qawwali tunes.
On his birth anniversary, here are five songs that may not have been mega hits, but are definitely favourites with his fans.
1. Tum ek gorakh dhanda ho
2. Saanware tere bin jiya jaaye na
3. Wohi khuda hai nizam hasti
4. Jaaney kab hongey kam, iss duniya ke gham
5. Unki gali mein aana jaana aadat si ho gayi hai
