Aamad [“The Arrival”] – Tauseef Akhtar

Tauseef - Aamad

 

Welcome to “new age” ghazals, courtesy Tauseef Akhtar. With Tauseef’s musical roots occurring in classical singing by the likes of Pandit Govind Prasad ‘Jaipurwale’, Ustad Dilshad Khan Saheb, and the extraordinary Begum Parveen Sultana, among others, Tauseef Akhtar’s vocals could not have got better training. And, it shows, on his eight-track album, ‘Aamad’, an Urdu word for “arrival”. It is led by “Woh Chiman Se”, a melodic lullaby that highlights Tauseef’s mellifluous singing, similar to the late, great ghazal singer Jagjitji. Similarly, the balance seven tracks too – intermittently supported by the vocals of Vidhi Sharma and Sunil Kumar Sajal – are supported by modern instrumentation provided by Tauseef, who also has composed the tracks, making “Aamad” an ideal vehicle for ghazals being transported to a wide-ranging audience that captures both, mature listeners and the millennials.
