Waterloo Records

At turns heavy and hulkingly powerful, yet agile and pointedly precise, the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's vocal not only embodies the tradition of the Sufi qawwali but it is the emotive essence of singing itself. Chain of Light is an album of previously unheard recordings of the singer and his qawwal party made at Real World Studios in 1990, whilst he was at the height of his vocal capabilities. Carefully restored from the original analogue tapes, this 'lost album' of traditional qawwals includes a pristine recording of the much-loved classic "Ya Allah Ya Rehman", as well the only known performance of "Ya Gaus Ya Meeran". Khan's legacy has enraptured millions across the globe with his magnificent and haunting voice. In his lifetime he collaborated with many Western musicians, including Peter Gabriel, Eddie Vedder and Michael Brook. His vocals appeared on soundtracks to films directed by Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone, Shekhar Kapur and Tim Robbins.
