- The great voice of Qawwali
It is hardly possible to mention Faiz Ali Faiz without drawing parallels to his role model, the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Faiz Ali Faiz comes from a family of seven generations of qawwali singers and began his professional career as a 16-year-old. He distinguished himself early on with his virtuoso, rich and expansive vocal abilities and rumor has it that Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan himself named him his heir on his deathbed. In addition to continuing the strong qawwali tradition, Faiz Ali Faiz has made a name for himself with various collaborations across different musical traditions.
