Shad Bashay Ishq Khush Sauday Mast - Graeme Revell & Roger Mason feat. Nusrat Fateh Ali

One of those rare compositions that wont just stop growing on you. Rumi's ecstatic poetry blended with subtle notes and the intoxicating voice of Nusrat Fateh Ali.

The first time I heard this track, it reminded me of Passion by Peter Gabriel feat. Nusrat Fateh Ali and Baaba Maal. But having said that the similarities cease to continue as the track progresses and reaches a crescendo. 

Dont Go Back To Sleep (reprise) is truly original in its sound taking you back to the times when everything around us was not as pacy as it is today. 

A rare album, Vision II - Spirit of Rumi by Australian Composer and Keyboardist Graeme Revell along with Roger Mason was produced in 1997. Nusrat Fateh Ali features as a Guest Artist on the album and has rendered three songs including this one. Other artists featured on this album include an Israeli vocalist Noa and singer Lori Carson.
