Since my childhood I was exposed to all genres of music. It is only later on that I was introduced to Sufism while recording for my launch album “Ishqa Ishqa” with Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar Sahab. Serendipity Arts Festival has given me an opportunity to present this bouquet of different flowers, each imparting its own fragrance… I shall be singing original ghazals, thumri, Amir Khusrau’s sufiyana kalaam, persian kalaam of Sarmast sufi saint poet besides Nusrat Fateh Ali Sahab’s popular songs and few of my popular songs from movies like Barfi; Dedh Ishqiya; Ye Jawani Hai Deewani. I promise you all an evening of brotherhood of love, of celebration and divine ecstasy—a journey of my soul to your soul.
