Today we remember and honour one of the world's greatest artists, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. We hear from a new recording by Dildar Hussain Khan, Nusrat's principal tabla player for several decades. Today he has his own Qawwali party with his sons as vocalists and solos by his son Abraar Khan.

Their new album "Sur Sangeet" features traditional Qawwali repertoire with a few very unusual and cool additions including the piano on several tracks.

We will also hear some pieces from Nusrat's extensive repertoire including a phenomenal live performance of his classic "Haq Ali Maula".

After 18 years, you are still sorely missed...

Just learned today, the phenomenal Senegalese percussionist Doudou N'diaye Rose has died. We will hear the Earth move by this master's drums.
