The Voice From Heaven Tour 2013

Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan


Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

USTAD RAHAT FATEH ALI KHAN returns to De Montfort Hall for one night only in what promises to be the most intimate concert in The Voice From Heaven Tour 2013.

The late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was one of the greatest singers ever, in any genre. Even if you didn't understand what the legendary qawwali vocalist was saying, the fire and fervor were clear. His nephew, RAHAT FATEH ALI KHAN, is proof that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

There is the same clear, ringing voice with that slight bit of gravel rasping at its edge, just like Nusrat. And RAHAT shines at classic qawwali, the Sufi devotional music made famous by his uncle, even as he has achieved additional fame for his lighter, almost easy-listening compositions that merge the vocal styles of a traditional qawwali, set to an atmospheric, almost new age-y background.

He has also brought the house down in India's thriving, immensely popular Bollywood industry, lending his voice to dozens of projects.

His Leicester appearance is one you shouldn't let pass by. It won't be a traditional qawwali concert, so fans of RAHAT'S uncle shouldn't go expecting that. What you will get is the voice. And sometimes, a voice is so good that it doesn't matter what it does, you just want to hear it.

Part of the centenary celebration season of Bollywood and De Montfort Hall – book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!

I feel that this music is my duty, to go
and give the message of Sufism.
My future is that one day I will fulfill the
desire of Nusrat to give this message
to the world.
- Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
