Remembering Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan by Rizwan & Muazzam at RiverRock Casino Resort


TORCH bearers of the Qawwali tradition for over five centuries, the famed Pakistani duo of brothers RIZWAN & MUAZZAM remembered their legendary uncle NUSRAT FATEH ALI KHAN on Saturday, November 24th, 2018 at the iconic RIVE ROCK CASINO RESORT for what promises to be an evening of SUFI QAWWALI. 
Grand children of legendary qawwali singer USTAD MUBARAK ALI KHAN , who taught Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & their father MUJAHID MUBARAK ALI KHAN , Muazzam & Rizwan learned the art of qawwali from their father till his untimely death in 1996 & thereafter from their uncle Nusrat Sahab and needless to say that they too followed their family tradition.
Rizwan & Muazzam, along with their brothers & other family members, started their qawwali foray by performing at WOMAD RIVERMEAD FESTIVAL at Reading, England in 1998 & since have performed all over the world as they're the star performers at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival in 2006 .
