Gabriel plans Nusrat tribute
from VH1

Peter Gabriel has announced that he will produce a tribute album featuring electronic dance remixes of the music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who died from cardiac arrest on August 16.

Gabriel stated in Billboard Online, "My two main singing inspirations, Nusrat and Otis Redding, have been supreme examples of how far and deep a voice can go in finding, touching, and moving a soul. It was always a thrill to work together."

Khan, who was best known for his style of Sufi devotional music, is not a stranger to the world of remixes. His music reached western dance floors when it was sampled by British band Massive Attack and producer Bally Sagoo.

The tribute album will be released in October, on an as-yet-undetermined label.
