Ustad Rahat Fatah Ali Khan will perform his Tribute Tour in Sydney on August 19, in honor of his uncle Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Rahat was chosen by his uncle at birth for tutoring in the art and traditions of Qawwali music.

Rahat performed from the age of nine in public, and at age 15, he was made an integral part of the famous Quawwali group touring the world.
In the 90s, Rahat debuted as a playback singer in Bollywood. Rahat and his uncle Nusrat also collaborated with Eddie Vedder, of Pearl Jam, for the 1995 soundtrack of Dead Man Walking. In 2002, he worked on the soundtrack of The Four Feathers with American composer James Horner and guested with The Derek Trucks Band on the song Maki Madni for Trucks' album, Joyful Noise. In 2011, his vocals were featured on the soundtrack of Mel Gibson's Apocalypto.
