About Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
Having emerged out of a family that possesses a strong influence in the South Asian musical tradition, this international superstar and Bollywood soundtrack favourite has carved out a prosperous career singing Qawwali music.
Grandson of legendary Fateh Ali Khan, this humble performer was selected at birth by his uncle to be tutored in the traditional genre of music. He began his formal training at just 7 years old before becoming a significant member of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Qawwali group.
During the 90s he developed a career as a playback singer in Bollywood films but it was as a solo singer that he made his name in the Western world. The singer quickly became a pioneer of his genre in the west and a major influence globally, captivating audiences in Europe & USA.
Today, he is one of the biggest stars in Asia, has recorded more than 50 music albums, has toured the world, and performed in some of the biggest events like Nobel Peace Prize, London Film Festival and UK Asian Music Awards .
Following the success of his sell-out 2014 world tour, this performer is giving Doha a dose of his fabled live show.
