Hadiqa recalls composing ghazal for Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Pakistani leading female singer Hadiqa Kiani shared the honour of collaborating with Qawwali Maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan back in 1997.

Taking to Twitter, she shared a throwback picture and wrote: “I wanted to share something very close to me, an accomplishment I don’t often talk about. In 1997, I had the honor of composing & singing my 1st ghazal for the legendary Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The ghazal and the album it was featured is now very difficult to find (pt.1).”

She added: “A friend sent me a screenshot from Spotify and told me it’s available there. So, if you want to hear how this university student from Rawalpindi sounded in 1997, take a listen on Spotify,” she added, posting a screenshot of the album on Spotify.

“It is still such an honour to have had my ghazal selected by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan for this album, an honour I will never forget. Rest in peace,” she added, closing off her mini tribute to the iconic NFAK who was/still is perhaps one of the most recognisable musical talents from Pakistan.
