From the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, April 6, in recognition of the various uprisings in North Africa, Middle East and Eastern Asia, we will focus on the man known as “The King of Kings of Qawwali,” Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
“Khan was best known and loved for his passionate, strident tenor, which wavered and soared like a liberated bird leading an ascending flock into the sky at dusk. At times bittersweet, at times caressing, Khan’s voice could induce ecstasy in even non-Muslim listeners, and frequently did.”
