Who knew the voice once considered "Unmusical" will be known as the "VOICE FROM HEAVEN

You know why he had to leave us? maybe because God himself wanted to keep listening to him… Maybe now a days he sings only to Gods in heaven.

Filmed in Pakistan, India, Canada and United States of America, A Voice From Heaven is a tribute to one of the most beautiful voices in the century: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the king of Qawwali. The story interweaves excellent Nusrat performance footage and a rare behind the scene glimpse into Nusrat's life. Interviews conducted with the many friends, artists and producers with whom Nusrat has collaborated with, including Rick Rubin, Michael Brook, Bally Sagoo and the Asian Dub Foundation, tell the story of a man and his music of peace and spiritual love.

Italian-born documentary filmmaker Giuseppe Asaro directs this tribute to master qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who died on 16th August 1997. The film demonstrates Nusrat's leading role as an ambassador of world music by including segments of concert footage, from shows for college students in Berkeley, California, to a gathering of Sufis in Pakistan. A Voice from Heaven was screened at the L.A/AFI film festival.
