Hailed as "the master of Sufi devotional music" and performing to sold out concerts across the globe, it should be no surprise that this month's Illuminated Artiste is the phenomenal Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

Music runs in the veins of Ustad Ji. Not only is he the nephew of the legendary Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, but he is also the son of Ustad Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan and the grandson of the legendary qawali singer, Fateh Ali Khan. Ustad Ji's brother and cousin are singers as well, and perform with him at his shows. Being born in such a musical household meant it was no surprise that he held a talent for singing. Now, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is not only known for qawali, but also ghazals and other light music. He has even become a well-known name in Bollywood and Lollywood!

Fun fact: Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan started training at the age of 3 and had his first stage performance at the age of 9.

Ustad Ji was trained by his uncle in the classical and qawali musical fields and was touring with his world famous group by the age of fifteen. It was not long before he was performing solo songs at these concerts and in the 90s, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was singing in Lollywood, and in 2004, he had his Bollywood debut with "Mann Ki Lagan" in Paap. His voice took everyone by storm and now there is not a single Bollywood fan who would not know at least one of his songs. His music has reached across the seas, and his concerts bring the audience to its feet. Blessed with a soulful and stirring voice, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is a natural born performer and the world knows it.

BollyCurry proudly presents some of Ustad Ji's most played tracks in recent times.
