Pakistani devotional singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is making an incredibly rare Orlando appearance next week, courtesy of the Association of Pakistani Americans of Central Florida!

The singer, nephew (and successor) of the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and a master of the Qawwali musical tradition, has toured the world and provided playback vocals to many a Bollywood film (as well as Dead Man Walking and Apocalypto, it should be said). This is a unique opportunity to say the least.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan plays the APPNA Summer Convention at the Rosen Shingle Creek on Friday, July 7 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $90. Worth it.
