Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan selected his nephew, Rahat, to lead his party (band) after his death. Qawwali (Sufi mystical poetry sung to a driving tabla beat) often uses vocables--meaningless syllables and howls of joy--to imply the ecstasy of communion with Allah. Rahat doesn't yet have his uncle's high range, but he is a powerful vocalist, and under his direction the party has added subtle Western touches to the music. "Allah Jallay Shan" kicks off Rahat's international debut with Rahmat Ali playing a melody on the harmonium that contains a slight reggae syncopation. "Ali Dum Dum" is introduced by a flurry of pop/rock arpeggios on harmonium, before moving into an impressive, extended wordless improvisation from Rahat. "Khaban Wich Meray Toon Na Aa" closes the disc with a strong, keening vocal by Rahat and a tabla backbeat that wouldn't be out of place on a George Clinton album. --j. poet

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fateh Ali Khan spirit lives on June 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I received this CD from a friend of my sister as a gift after (coincidentally) seeing it in the store and not having enough money to buy it. I listened to the CD and was captivated. I have listened to quite a lot of Nusrat, and I finally was able to determine whose voice was whose once I heard Rahat soloing. Rahat's range is very impressive, just as was his uncle's and is his father's. I'm really getting tired, however, of people comparing Rahat to his late uncle and saying things like 'oh he lacks this and that skill that Nusrat had...maybe in the future he'll get up to Nusrat's level' - let's face it - no one wants to admit it but it's apparent - due to reasons he most likely could not help, Nusrat had a HOARSE and SCRATCHY voice - i still love his music and he was a very skilled musician, but the 'Voice from Heaven'? No disrespect to Ustad Nusrat, but let's just be real!! Rahat may not be as charismatic with his alaap but at least he doesn't sound like he gargled with pumice soap! This guy's got a hot future ahead of him and I am itching for the release of his next album. Wonderful music, especially Ali Dum Dum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful singing! In tradition of Nusrat... September 23, 2005
By dm
Format:Audio CD
I picked this up by mistake actually, thinking it was a younger Nusrat recording.

When I got home and saw it was his "successor" and that the album was produced by Rick Rubin, I was dubious.

The first seconds of the first track took away these apprehensions, though. Rahat has a beautiful voice, and all tracks are in the traditional style, not bastardized for a Western audience.

It's not really fair to try to compare Rahat to Nusrat, is it? Rahat has a strong and unique voice in his own right, and I enjoy this CD very much. I just wish there was more of his music available.

Rahat has a voice only a successor of Nusrat can have. His voice is completely different from Nusrat yet he can create that magic that only the best qawwals can create - the feeling of "wajd" or ecstasy.

Buy him, its worth every cent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rahat can sing! August 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I saw Rahat Khan in Chicago at one of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's final shows. Nusrat was very, very late arriving, and Rahat took centerstage (with a rendition of Mera Piya Gar Aya) to placate the audience which had started to hiss and boo. And what a turnaround. He won rapturous applause for an electrifying performance. Only 17 at the time, Rahat stole the rest of show too, outsinging the others (even the ailing Nusrat) with his soloes. It was clear that he would be the one who would claim Nusrat's mantle. It is good to finally see a solo release by Rahat, though the lack of sound clips here makes a buying decision difficult. The one track I've heard (Khaban Wich Meray Toon Na Aa) was great and indicates that this release is in the traditional (rather than fusion) vein.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad August 14, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Solid Qawwali, not the greatest but given some time I think Rahat can begin to fill his late Uncle's position. Rahat has talent but lacks the improvising skill to both be a soloist and carry along the entire song. The presence of Farukh Fateh Ali Khan on the CD is very nice and reminnds one of this singers great lineage. His distinctive voice can either make or break the album for you, but watch out for future realeases he'll definitely be back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Brilliance June 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am a very big fan of Rahat, and this album tells me why! The first track, Allah Jallay Shan, is beautifully sung. Number two and three are alright. However, track four rounds of the album in such a way that you must keep listenning to it. The quality of the cd is very very superb, and the lyrics are just like nusrat's, heart-gripping, and for those of you who are in love but are not together with that person, number 4 lyrics are as thought rahat came into your heart and told you how you felt.
Thanks
