Islam’s mystic Sufi sect is responsible for some of the world’s most beautiful and sensual devotional music. In the ’90s, the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan mesmerized his native Pakistanis and Western rock stars alike with heart-rending qawwalis — devotional poems set to snaky Middle Eastern and Indian melodies. Indian prodigy Ranjeet Rajwada performs in a similar Sufi tradition, ghazal. This week, get mesmerized by the young, butter-voiced native of Rajasthan.
