An NCPA Presentation

Essentially a form of romantic poetry, a ghazal conveys emotions like no other form can. The format of ghazal lends itself to being composed to music and presented as a ‘song’. Due to its potential to evoke myriad shades of human emotions, the genre is immensely popular with artistes and audiences alike. Endowed with a mellifluous voice, Ghansham Vaswani chose the language of ghazals to express his creativity, despite being trained in classical music. He was privileged to be mentored and presented by the legendary singer Jagjit Singh. Vaswani has sung and composed ghazals for independent albums, TV serials and films. Besides having command over the idiom of ghazal, he is also known for singing bhajans and Sindhi contemporary music. His presentation will include some evergreen ghazals penned by great poets such as Ghalib, Faiz, Shahariyar, Nida Fasli and others; and immortalised by legendary singers such as Begum Akhtar, Talat Mahmood, Mehdi Hasan and Jagjit Singh.
