Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a Pakistani musician and qawwal. Easily the most eminent and important qawwal of all-time, he is known as "Shahenshah-E-Qawwali" or "King of Qawwali".

He was born on October 13, 1948 in Lyallpur (present Faisalabad), Pakistan in a family of qawwals. His father, Fateh Ali Khan, was himself a qawwal but wanted Nusrat to take up a more "respectable" profession. Seeing young Nusrat's talent and interest, he relented and started teaching him music. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan started learning the tabla and progressed to Hindustani vocal training. His training was interrupted by his father's demise in 1964, after which his uncles, Mubarak Ali Khan and Salamat Ali Khan, took him under their wings and completed his training. The 16 year-old Nusrat did his first public performance soon after his father's death.
