A concert is to be held at prestigious General Assembly hall in United Nations on 23rd March to commemorate Pakistan’s National Day. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan will be performing at this concert.
Rahat, who hails from a Qawwal family of Pakistan, is probably an ideal candidate to perform during a night of Sufi music. The concert will use Sufi music to preach peace and harmony at the world stage. Rahat Fateh will be performing for an hour and a half singing his global hits and mixing them up with traditional Sufi folk music that hails from Pakistan.
Various top diplomats, UN officials and media executives will be attending this concert. It’s a perfect place for Pakistanis to give their message of peace to the world. There could have been nothing better than using traditional and folk Sufi music to spread this message.
The concert is already being promoted as you could see the news all over social media and TV. The posters of the concert are already hanging outside the General Assembly hall and the UN building. This could be a chance for Pakistan to change the image and tell the world that they are peace-loving nation who just got hit by terrorism.
Rahat Fateh Ali is a leading exponent of Sufi music. He combines traditional Qawali music with modern synths. The sound that results from this combination is unique, harmonic and peaceful. It has become Rahat’s trademark and not it’s time for him to entertain global audience with his peaceful music.
Rahat, already an international artists, has performed at Nobel Peace Prize Awards Ceremony along with various other prestigious performances. This will be another chance for Rahat to represent Pakistani’s rich culture through his music.
