An evening of Sufi music by Javed Ali
The core idea of love, longing and union with the beloved, as espoused in Sufi songs has an evergreen appeal to people from all walks of life, transcending man-made boundaries of region, religion, caste and creed. Today, besides the traditional repertoire, a large number of songs are inspired by or based on elements of Sufi music. These compositions show marked influence of contemporary idioms and expressions and are widely popular with the masses.
Javed Ali trained with his father Hamid Hussain, a well-known qawwali singer, and Ghulam Ali, the legendary ghazal maestro. In the short span of his career, he has had the privilege of working with eminent music directors and has performed for numerous films in several languages. Besides film music, Ali is proficient in singing ghazals.
Ali’s presentation will include a bouquet of Sufiana compositions from the traditional repertoire and Bollywood Sufi music.
