Anastasia Tsioulcas, NPR, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's Voice Offers A Sonic Refuge

" … a brand-new issue of Khan captured at his vocal prime, recorded when he was just at the precipice of becoming an international phenomenon: a midnight set recorded in 1985 at England's WOMAD festival, which was co-founded by Peter Gabriel five years earlier to showcase international music and dance talent. It was the performance that was hailed as Khan's first real introduction to non-South Asian audiences." And you can stream the album using the link above, until the album is released on 26 July. It sounds great.
