Rahat Ali Khan

Live at KPFA


  • Rahat Ali Khan
  • Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan
  • Ustad Tari Khan

Recorded in 1996 at the studios of KPFA FM 94.1 in Berkeley, CA.

This recording consists of an insightful and wonderful interview by Kutay Derin Kugay with the band. Especially considering this is Rahat Ali Khan's first performance in the Bay Area as Lead Vocalist. They also perform for the first time "Ali Dum Dum", an original song compsed by Rahat Ali Khan himself. The segment aired before a full concert at the famous Great American Music Hall.

The songs are amazing and clean, showcasing the range of their talents. This release is divided by not only song, but interview as well; to give the listener a change to better understand qawwali music and these gifted musicians. Rahat Ali Khan and Family Live at KPFA, is definitely one for the collectors of this family's rich qawwali history.
