"Aankh Uthi Mohabbat Ne Angrai"

"after all these years, still mind blowing. No one can sing like ustaad-ji"

Above is a comment at YouTube about this qawwali, sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Co. Although it was posted at YouTube in December 2010 the video was probably made in the 1980s or early 1990s.  (Nusrat died in 1997.)

I might have posted the video before -- I've posted so many of Nusrat's performances I can't remember for sure -- but it's a great way to concentrate the mind on things that transcend the chaos currently reported in the news media. 

In death he has more life than all today's popular singers combined.
