WEB DESK: Seems like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan still has the music industry highly influenced even after his demise. The Qawwali Maestro Nusrat Sahab was recently called a genius by none other than two time Oscar winning music composer A.R. Rehman.
During an award show in Japan, the musician could not stop gushing over the greatness of the late Qawwal and called him a unique genius.
“Nusrat sahab was a unique genius,” he said of the legendary qawwal. “When I look at him as a whole package, he is untouchable even now. I grew up with some of his music, which was really unique and that certainly happens once in a lifetime,” he stated.
Talking about diversity in the music, A.R. Rehman said its is all about balance.
“It’s all about how much you know and how much you want to control,” he said. “Sometimes if you have just one forte then you can’t collaborate with so many different people since you need variety for that to happen . At times, you have to do with one focal point or one vision and that too helps. So you can’t say it’s either a good thing or a bad thing, you have to look at the product at the end,” he said.
