The Emperor Of Qawwali & Prodigy Of Ghazals

Have you ever tried any of NFAK Ghazals… When it came to Ghazals NFAK thunderous voice used to become honey-soft , Sargam Improvisations used to become murkiyan ( A murki is cluster of notes that sounds like a short, subtle taan ), Repetitions of Phrases by Ensemble was replaced by NFAK’s solo repetitions full of Adayagi( Elite way of Expressing) and intense hand movements were now just limited to eyes and facial expressions… ( Though NFAK sometimes induced Sargams in Ghazals too… Cross-blending as he always did..)

My most Favorite NFAK Ghazal is ” Mai Khayal Hoo Kisi Aur Ka ” followed by “Kehna Galat Galat” (yes it’s a Ghazal)

Missives From Allah – One of the best Ghazal Albums of NFAK

So Here is A few shortlisted ghazals

Mai Khayal Hoon

Kehna Galat Galat

More will follow in Coming posts..
