Seems to me that "six-octave range" is an exaggeration. He was a tenor who used a set of techniques to reach beyond the two octaves most mortals can reach. As an example, in the video for "Must Nazron Se Allah Bachaye" it is clearly seen that the highest notes are sung by another party member.
I was referring to these two statements: "kindly do some research before disputing this" and "Please note that it is actually disrespectful to enter claims that belong in the supernatural e. Vocal Range of six octaves is not something impossible at all and has been attained by people on several occasions. The current record holder is Tim Storms who has attained 10 octave range check it out Five octaves as mentioned by elpincha is his range in inaudible frequency,below middle C Tim Storms is not alone I would like to point that elpincha had been very direct and disrespectful without any proper citation.
And of course, the ten octaves claim cannot be taken seriously. As pointed out in the previous section, Tim Storms has a vocal range of 10 octaves, and this is certified by Guinness.
Perhaps it is you and your personal opinion, unsupported by anything else who should not be taken seriously? Please do not restore it unless you Sir Pathétik - Avant Que Tu Moublies support your claims.
To a person who has studied a little music, it is rather embarrassing to read this exchange and see the 6-octave claim continues to stay in Wikipedia.
I know that the user elpincha did some "original research" and so is not supposed to change Wikipedia because of that, but perhaps that original research would convince some of you who doubt elpincha's findings to check with your own ears. If you would simply would write down the Who Is The Beloved - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Visions Of Allah and higher notes he sings while you listen to his music you would see why 6 octaves is not true. Simply because a thousand newspapers repeat something ridiculous does not make it true.
Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a great musician! He does not need anybody to claim that he could sing 6 octaves. That is not even an important thing about a true musician.
But certainly he does not need false claims and it is not respectful to him for us to perpetuate them. Comparing this deep artist -- whose music is beloved by millions -- to a handful of physical oddballs -- whose "music" is known only to the machines recording their "music" for the Guinness record book as elpincha wrote: "somebody who Bröllopsresan - Radioskugga - Ljusglimtar Ur Radioskugga more of a physical phenomenon than an artist" -- is not relevant and is disrespectful to NFAK.
Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan SANG -- he did not make rumbling low notes like an Who Is The Beloved - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Visions Of Allah nor did he squeak nor sing high high notes above the range of an operatic coloratura soprano; he sang beautiful music.
I will not edit the page but will leave it to those of you who are dedicated to NFAK and to this page -- but I Hymn To The Ancients - Demoncy - Joined In Darkness you to use your own ears and check if you hear him singing anything below C3 or above C6 and that is only a four octave range.
These guys may be making a movie, but where did they get this "fact" from? A person can technically have such a wide vocal range, but you achieve that by making "rumbling low notes like an elephant" and "high high notes above the range of an operatic coloratura soprano", and Nusrat certainly didn't do that. I'm not sure that the article is improved by adding this dubious, apparently incorrect claim just because some support can be found for it somewhere on the internet.
Considered One of the greatest singers ever recorded Could perform at high Intensity for several hours Six-Octave Vocal length Any of them can be a trusted source as per Wikipedia Rules. A very strong source can be Ustad Ghulam Haider Khan, who explains in one of his articles for Friday Times where he talks about NFAK's voice technically telling that " He lacked the bass notes but still trained his vocal range to more that that of keys of Harmonium"note that Harmonium can maximum be played to 6-octaves.
This source has been added. I have retained the the source for now because it directly references what has been said, all 3 points NFAK's vocal range was definitely one the best in world, even National geographic described it as "Superhuman vocal abilities".
Please see upper section on vocal length. The article was moved to page named "Pervez Fateh Ali Khan"I have moved it back to the original title. Pervez was Nusrat's name Give, Baby, Give - Cab Calloway - Jive Formation Please! for a few years after his birth, and then he was named "Nusrat" by his father which remained forever.
However I have retained the change of "Nusrat" By "Khan" because its more Who Is The Beloved - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Visions Of Allah. While it seems clear Gwen Stefani - Love.Angel.Music.Baby. NFAK was a key Who Is The Beloved - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Visions Of Allah in bringing Sufi music to us lot, it is perhaps not certain that he was the one and only person who did so.
For example Brian Jones helped to bring Moroccan music to the west back in Perhaps we should make it clear that we are speaking about Qawwali music specifically? This is a pretty pointless quibble. Also, there was a detailed discussion on this topic last year on talk page. Please suggest a different version of introductory lines that justifies the subject if possible.
