Connecting with the immaterial sphere: Asif Ali Khan is considered the legitimate heir to the legendary Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

The ensembles of the over 800 year old Islamic Sufi tradition are composed of singers, tabla and dholak percussionists and harmonium players. The elaborate chains of melodies together with the collective clapping of the ritual performance are designed to put the audience in contact with the divine sphere.
