BADAR ALI KHAN
Lost In Qawwali III
| Flowing with infectious
rhythm, hypnotic percussion, mesmerizing repetition and spine-tingling
vocal improvization, Qawwali music has thrilled listeners since
the 10th Century. One family - the Khans of Pakistan - has dominated
this vibrant musical form with an unbroken line of truly great
male vocalists. As Qawwali music rides an unprecedented wave
of worldwide popularity, the star vocalist of the next generation,
the voice that will carry Qawwali music to a whole new level,
has emerged to claim the musical baton of his storied family.
Born in 1968, Badar Ali Khan has already released 22 albums in his native Pakistan. Most recently, working with producer/arranger/composer Suresh "Baba" Varma, Badar has leaped to the forefront of his art, becoming a Qawwali superstar with Baba Records' multimillion-selling album, Good Karma 1. Blending the traditional with the contemporary, the ethereal with erotic, Badar Ali Khan has succeeded in transforming this ancient artform into something totally modern, incredibly potent and powerfully intoxicating for today's young audiences.
