Mann Ki Lagan - Paap (2004)

Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (b. 1974) is a Pakistani musician, primarily a singer of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis. He is the nephew of the late Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. In addition to Qawwali, he also performs ghazals and other light music. He has toured extensively and performed for Indian and Pakistani audiences around the world.

Traditionally, Qawwali has been a family business. Rahat's family has an unbroken tradition of performing Qawwali for more than 600 years. Rahat took over the family Qawwali party after Nusrat's death in 1997. (Nusrat had formally nominated Rahat as his successor during his lifetime).

I love "Sufi style" songs and you have done a wonderful job. Voice and feelings are remarkable! Liked the last Aalap and Sargam a lot.

Very nice rendition. Not an easy song to sing, but you have sung extremely well specially alaap and sargam at the end. Also liked your own subtle variations which makes this rendition more pleasing and likable. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
