Virinder Kalra - When Nusrat came to Slough
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was undoubtedly one of the most popular Qawaali singers of South Asia and thus in 1989, Nusrat performed at Slough Gurdwara singing texts from the Sikh tradition.
Virinder Kalra joins the bookclub in conversation with Pritpal Singh to explore the ways in which Nusrat’s Qawaali engaged with other spiritual music texts. He will look at how the space of diaspora enabled interactions across religious boundaries and created the conditions to re-imagine a nineteenth-century Punjab in which the role of musicians was not delimited by their religious identity.
