An ardent traditionalist and interpreter of Soufi music.
Nusrat has without doubt produced the best contemporary interpretation of Qawwali, the religious chanting song emanating from the belief and amoreuse ardour of the 'Soufi's".
Following his performances at the theatre De La Ville in Paris during the early nineties and his enthusiastic promotion by his French record label, Orcas Radio France, Nusrat's popularity spread throughout Europe. Performances at the Womad and Real World Festivals resulted in musical collaborations with 'Avante Garde" western musicians, inspired by his interpretation of Qawwali, including Peter Gabriel, Bjork, Mick Saint-Claire and Jeff Buckley.
He then ventured to Hollywood, working with Oliver Stone in 'Natural Born Killers' and Tim Robbins's Dead Man Walking.
