Autobiography: general

Regarded as 'Pavarotti of the East' and 'Shahenshah-e-Qawwali', Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was the man with the magical voice. With over 300 albums to his credit which have sold in millions, his all-consuming mission was to spread the message of the Sufi poets and mystics. A man of deep simplicity and someone truly of his times, Nusrat made Sufi music a global favourite.

This book is a personal account of the great qawwal's life as observed by Pierre - Alain Baud who was overcome with emotion when he heard Nusrat during his very first concerts in France in 1985. A charming account, it is replete with anecdotes from Baud's travels with the artiste to various shows across the world and in Pakistan until his untimely death in 1997
