This month marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, perhaps the world's finest Qawwali artist, even after his untimely death.

Qawwals are the devotional songs of Sufism and Nusrat that came from a family that's been performing Qawwals for more than 600 years.

Nusrat became the world's most popular Qawwali artist, whose work moved everyone form Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Peter Garbiel.

This week, we celebrate the music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Also, another installment of “From the Stage” with Esta, hailed as Israel's most original instrumental band.
