Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – Shahen-Shah (1988)

Wikipedia says:
Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music popular in South Asia, particularly in areas with a historically strong Muslim presence in Pakistan and parts of North India. It's a vibrant musical tradition that stretches back more than 700 years. Often listeners, and even artists themselves, are transported to a state of wajad, a trance-like state where they feel at one with God, generally considered to be the height of spiritual ecstasy in Sufism, and the ultimate goal of the practice.
