This heritage of being a singer was passed down through his uncle, Late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, a superstar and a legendary singer and music composer of Sufi music who is still remembered for his work all over the world.
Sufi music is now a movement that aims to fight the radical Islamist ideology that is taking place in regions of the country and other nations.
For Ustad Rahat, music is more than simply recreation; it’s a communication sung to audiences to bring peace of soul and mind.
It also promotes brotherhood, and love, just as his forefathers have done back in the ear of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. Music is about so much more than simply nationalism.
There are several qualities of music that are appealing to ears. He uses his voice to persuade others to lay down their guns and weapons and begin the road of peace.
Ustad Rahat – His Personality
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who has been in the music industry for almost a decade, makes no apologies for his status as a mega star. This is obvious when he invites me inside his office, which he refers to as ‘RFAK World.’
He is mostly dressed in kurta shalwar and has an extremely humble tone towards others. He is down-to-earth, decent, downright modest, and has a sense of empathy for others. His voice, like his vocal style, is crisp and somewhat sweet whenever he sings.
Rahat has previously worked with Eddie Vedder of the American rock band Pearl Jam. He collaborated on the music of Dead Man Walking, a 1995 English blockbuster.
He also collaborated with American musician James Horner on the music of Shekhar Kapoor’s film named The Four Feathers. In 2006, he contributed to some other massive smash music, Mel Gibson’s epic Apocalypto.
RFAK also feels that Lollywood is now on the rise, which really is beneficial for the film business. In terms of carrying on his father’s musical heritage, his 12-year-old son, Shahzaman Ali Khan, shares his father’s love of music and aspires to pursue it as a profession.
