Gaudi & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
London based producer and artist, Gaudi, has reinterpreted the music of Pakistan's Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in a new CD entitled Dub Qawwali. The title comes from the style of music Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan performed, Qawwali, and the dub style Gaudi used to reinterpret his music.
Here's how the Six Degrees Records website describes this unique collaboration:
"Gaudi has taken an entirely new approach to re-interpreting the work of this great artist. He has created a collection of new compositions in which the original vocals are seamlessly fused with a full spectrum of dub & reggae styles and musical themes & flavors from other cultures, genres and environments. A universal theme of peace and love, very much evident in both Khan's work and at the heart of reggae music, is the unifying element."
The CD is slated for release this coming Tuesday, July 31st, on Six Degrees Records. Gaudi is also working on a solo release for 2008.
