Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (1948 – 1997) was a world renowned Pakistani singer of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis. Considered one of the greatest singers ever recorded, he possessed an extraordinary range of vocal abilities and could perform at a high level of intensity for several hours. Extending the 600-year old Qawwali tradition of his family, Khan is widely credited with introducing Qawwali music to international audiences. He is popularly known as "Shahenshah-e-Qawwali", meaning "The King of Kings of Qawwali". He released movie scores and albums in Europe, India, Japan, Pakistan, and the USA and also engaged in collaborations and experiments with Western musicians, becoming a well-known world music artist. He toured extensively, performing in over 40 countries. In 1995 he received the UNESCO Music Prize.
