Kronos Quartet with Homayun Sakhi, Alim & Fargana Qasimov; Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Starting with a wonderful collaboration in the Smithsonian Institute's Music of Central Asia series between the Kronos Quartet and Afghan and Azerbaijan musicians with the Homayun Sakhi Trio and the Alim Qasimov Ensemble. The first piece was composed by Homayun Sakhi for the quartet, rubab, and percussion; the other pieces were arranged by longtime Kronos colleague Jacob Garchik who helped arrange the Qasimov's songs for the quartet. The result is gloriously beautiful and passionate music. The latter half of the show we hear a live recording from Lahore of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Party, a lengthy Qawwali performance of Be Khud Kiye Dete Hai. Rahat is the nephew of the great Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan; Rahat started performing in Nusrat's party in 1985 and toured the UK with them at the age of 11. He became one of the two main soloists in the party after Nusrat himself. Nusrat nurtered him to be his musical heir. He will be making a rare appearance in Ottawa with his ensemble this Monday at Algonguin College.

I am heartbroken. I will not be able to go see Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Please, go see him! If you do go to the concert, please let me know your thoughts!
