Whats the big “DEAL”?

    Thanks Ronin.
    yeah…that was an overall analysis of Pakistani music and obviously influenced by the popularity of Pakistani music in India. I’ll surely try those artists you suggested. And yea, I had forgotten to include the classical singers and artists from Pakistan who are not popular in mainstream media. One of them, though from contemporary classicals, is “Shafaqat Ali Khan”, a very good and talented artist. If you havent listened to him, you must try. He is my favorite though.

    Well, sound is what we all cherish and music let us live in peace and tranquility. It surely knows no borders. Cheers!

    “Shafaqat Ali Khan” is my favorite too. Once he performed in Delhi along with Rahat-Fateh- Ali-Khan and Rabbi Shergill. He clearly stood out. Rabbi Shergill was nowhere near both these performers but “Shafaqat Ali Khan” was the best.
    I don’t know what the above comment had to do with Benair Bhutto or Mussharaf but I couldn’t stop myself from joining @bayard on this.

    Bayard actually replied to a comment that I made on his post about Pakistani Music. And yes it has nothing to do with the present political situation.

    But anywaz welcome to RONIN. Its nice to know that you to listen to Pakistani singers. Both Shafqat and Rahat have a classical singing background. Rahat is th nephew of the great Nusrat Fateh Ali and Shafqat is the son of Amanat Ali Khan who is regarded as the Kishore of Ghazal Singing in Pakistan. Shafqat is a mainstream pop singer here. He claimed his popularity in Pakistan ages before he went to India and sang ‘ Mitwa’

    Thank you Pr3rna and Bayard for your comments.

    … so is it ‘a deal’, and who’s ‘dealing’? hehe

    Ronin and Pr3rna, just wanted to clarify something. The Shafqat Ali Khan I was talking about is not the son of Amaanat Ali Khan. He is the son of famed Pakistani singer Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, who was the uncle and one of the first teachers of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the best-known exponent of Pakistani Qawaali singing. He is basically a classical vocalist, however featured in some new-age albums. One of them, which was a bit popular in india, was “Aawara Sur” composed by Bappi Lahiri. This album was released in 1994 on Plus Records, I guess. I really doubt that Shafaqat of Mitwa and Shafaqat of Aawara sur are same. See these links:-

    The Shafaqat Amanat Ali Khan, who sung Mitwa and one song in Krrish, is also a good singer and is looking for some cool opportunities in Bollywood.

    My personal favorite is the earlier one! :))

    @ Iditis

    Its a deal alright 🙂 and the other question can be answered better by our RAILWAY MINISTER :p

    @ Bayard


    I completely misunderstood u back there, but I find Shafqat Amanat better because he is willing to take classical music to the next level unlike other classical musicians.

    The Shafqat Ali Khan I am talking about is the lone exponent of Sham Chaurasi Gharana now. He is a classical singer. I guess Bayard is talking about the same genius.
