Ustad Dildar Hussain Khan is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and a current master of Qawwali music.

Ustad Dildar Hussain Khan is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and a current master of Qawwali music, the ancient Sufi style that Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan popularized worldwide in the 20th century.

Sur Sangeet presents a modern acoustic version of Qawwali that blends tradition with Punjabi folk and jazz elements. The mesmerizing music is characterized by a call and response interaction between the lead vocalists and the chorus. The vocalists are accompanied by skilled harmonium and tabla as well as handclap percussion. In fact, the tabla, which is modified, has a leading role and is performed by Dildar. Tracks 3 and 6 are absorbing solo tabla performances.
