Paying tribute to one of the world’s greatest vocalists, Brooklyn Qawwali Party formed to honor the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, reworking his thunderous songs for an eclectic, eleven-piece orchestra. BQP has five horns, guitar, bass, harmonium, and three percussionists that meld into one buoyant, jazzy rhythm.
BQP founder/percussionist Brook Martinez had heard Nusrat’s music on occasion, but it wasn’t until watching his Live at Meany performance that a flame was kindled. While at the World Music Institute he noticed that more Nusrat records sold from their office than any other album. Having tied together the bonds between faith and devotional-based practices with folk musics in his own jazz education, Martinez was taken by the force of Nusrat’s soulful determination.
This is the essential quality BQP has sought to transcribe in their own takes of his music, and by the sounds of their live shows, as well as their self-titled debut recording, they are succeeding.
