Yeh Dil Paagal, Dil Mera
Kyun Bhuj Gaya Awaargi
It was a night that was timeless, unforgettable, hypnotic with a touch of pure poetry emoting in the hearts of all present. Ghulam Ali was ably supported by Arshad Ali on tabla and Muhammad Bashir Khan on the Banjo. There were about 350 people in the hall and they listened with rapt pleasure to the haunting melodies that Ghulam Ali sang to the audience. Some swayed, others clapped and some others echoed Wah! Wah! in true appreciation.
And what a show it was. Extremely modest and apologizing for the slight delay in the program for no fault of his, since he was there on time, he started the evening with a soulful rendition of Ahmed Faraz’s Ghazal, Teri Baaten Hee Sunaane Aye Hain. This was followed by Bhid Mein Ik Ajnabee Ka Saamna Accha Laga.
My favorite was Agha Bismil’s Mehfil Mein Baar Baar Kisi Par Nazar Gayi, Hamne Bacchayi Laakh Baar, Magar Udhar Gayi which sent many into raptures.
The sounds of ‘The Unforgettable’ began resonating all around, as if the melodies were already pouring. The real treat of the evening was to come at the conclusion of the first session.
From the popular ‘ghazal’ Chupke Chupke, Kal Chaudhivi Ki Raat Thi and Dil Mein Ik Lahar Si Utthi to the evergreen ‘nazm’, Ghulam Ali revived those absorbing rhythms and voice modulations that make his music so magical. He ended the night’s performance with the lilting and melodious Hangama To Nahi, Daka To Nahi Dala, Chori To Nahi Ki. It was an enticing and enchanting performance by a man who has been rightly called the King of Ghazals.
