Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is “Lost in His Work” has called revered Qawwali music icon Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan “the Bob Marley of Pakistan” and “the Elvis of the East.” Both of those nicknames actually underestimate Khan’s power and — though this is not a technical music term — overall awesomeness.

Nasrat Fateh Ali Khan became known well beyond Pakistan in the ’80s and ’90s through his compilations with Peter Gabriel and his contributions to the film soundtracks of “Last Temptation of Christ,” “Dead Man Walking,” “Natural Born Killers” and “Jackass: The Movie.”  (Kidding about that last one.  Just want to see if you’re  paying attention.)  See this rocking video of Khan performing the Pakistani Sufi classic “Mustt Mustt  (Lost in His Work).”
