In Pakistan, Qawwali music is an integral part of the country's cultural heritage. One of the most notably famous qawwals is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Qawwali is a form of devotional music that has its roots particularly in Pakistan and India. The word 'Qawwali' is derived from the Arabic word 'qaul' which means 'to speak'. Qawwali is usually performed by a group of musicians, known as qawwals, who use their voice and instruments to create a powerful and spiritual atmosphere that is both uplifting and emotional. Qawwali is believed to have originated in the 13th century in Sufi shrines, and is performed and listened to all over the world today.

One of the distinctive features of Qawwali is the use of 'call-and-response' singing, where the lead singer (known as the 'ustad') sings a phrase and the other qawwals (known as 'chorus') repeat it. This creates a harmonious and unified sound that is both powerful and moving. The lyrics of Qawwali are often in Urdu and Persian, and they typically revolve around the themes of love, devotion, and spirituality.

Born in 1948 in Faisalabad, Pakistan, Nusrat F. A. Khan belonged to a family of musicians, where his father, Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, was also a famous Qawwali singer. His voice touched the hearts of many that led him to world recognition and an icon for the people of Pakistan. He is considered undoubtedly a legend in Qawwali and Pakistan.

The tee is a mock world tour inspired tee.
