Good find. Sounds a lot like his uncle.

I was turned on to Nusrat when I heard him on a Peter Gabriel album (Passion Sources), have since found more of his work. Quite a voice, pity he had to leave the world so soon.

Nusrat was a most interesting person. His family (and a large one at that) is part of the Sufi sect, a flavor of Islam that revels in music. Quite a contrast from the Taliban who said music was evil (unless you were a Taliban leader, they had killer sound systems in their cars). He caught a lot of flack for close contacts with western society (taught some classes in the US), and recording a westernized album (Mustt Mustt, quite listenable) but the critique didn't deter him, as he believed that music was a way to bring cultures together.

Off of that same Peter Gabriel album that introduced me to Nusrat, I also came across a beautiful piece by a Senegalese singer with a magical voice, Baaba Maal. Here's a rather hypnotic song of his, has a slightly latin flavor to it.
