October 13 is the birthday of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, but he’s not the only musical Khan out there. This show will feature music from him, and also from other artists such as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (Nusrat’s nephew), Amjad Ali Khan, Sultan Khan, Shafqat Ali Khan, Badar Ali Khan, Surjit Khan, even the Ali Khan Band. Khan do!

This week’s show starts with a celebration of the lives and music of Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti and Qawwali king Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, whose birthdays are this week. Without them, the face of “world music” would be far different. Though one is known for his vocal prowess in singing devotional Sufi music and the other for feisty anti-establishment poly-rhythmic funk-jazz, both are huge figures. Listen in to see how they sound side by side. Plus new releases from other parts of the planet in the second hour of the show.

Now… this week’s show fell right between the birthdays of two global music giants, so we ping-ponged with their music in the first hour, then added in some other great artists in the second hour of the show. Qawwlafrobeat, anyone?

Is there musical common ground — or at least complementary sounds — in the music of these two very different nations? Can qawwali and fado co-exist? Listen and find out. Also in hour 2, some fantastic new releases that seem determined to complicate my almost-finished Best of 2010 list.
