A shocking news for everyone! The singing legend Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s lost tape recordings which were captured just before his death were found in a storage in Oakland, California.
The recordings are owned by Australian-Pakistani singer-songwriter Mahmood Khan who worked with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in 1996. Mehmood Khan developed and wrote the songs while he worked on his solo album during a time when Nusrat was battling kidney disease which eventually took his life in 1998.
According to Mehmood Khan, these rare recording tapes with an estimated auction value of over 5 million dollars are in perfect condition and have enough material which can produce a new Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan album.
“My dream project would be to work with Doug Emery, Julio Hernandez, Dan Warner and Lee Levin (members of the Barry Gibb Band) on this production. Maybe Barry Gibb will lend a vocal or two, you never know; if he does it will be the greatest fusion of Pop and World music ever produced,” said Mahmood Khan.
According to rumours, we also heard that his last album may soon be out but we are just waiting for the official news from Mehmood Khan.
