Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – an amazing voice!!!

‘Laagi Tum Se Munn Ki Lagan’ (لاگی تم سے من کی لگن), ‘Bol Halkay Halkay’ (بول ہلکے ہلکے), ‘Oh Re Piya’ (او رے پیا), and ‘Jiya Dharrak Dharrak’ (جیا دھڑک دھڑک) are the songs that make people move their feet and swing their heads. These beautifully composed melodies have the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, nephew of the Music King, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Rahat Fateh Ali - the amazing artist

Rahat Fateh Ali - the amazing artist

Rahat was born in Faisalabad, Pakistan in 1974. His music trainer was none other than Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Rahat sang many qawalies with his uncle. He got recognition during Nusrat’s lifetime, however after his death Rahat has gone a far ahead. He is trying his best to prove himself as Nusrat’s next kin in the field of music. Bollywood film directors soon recognised this diamond and now he has been singing for their movies.

Rahat has a genuine voice of his own and he sings the songs using vibrato which has been very instrumental in his success. He has a very good command on tone and pitch. Besides, he can sing equally good at high and low notes. He is dedicated to promote qawali, which is the Muslims’ special kind of music. We wish him a very good future in the highly competitive music world and hope that he will prove himself as second Nusrat Fateh Ali khan.

  1. Yes, Rahat Fateh Ali khan has great voice and I am really Fan of his classical signing.
    I have been seeing / listening to him during the times of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab’s Qawali Performances.

    May Allah bless him and let his voice reach reach to all the corners of the wold like his uncle NFAK.
