Ghazal & Sufi with Sheeba Khan

sheeba khan

On Sunday evening I had the pleasure of attending a light classical music concert of ghazals and Sufi music in Gurgaon (near Delhi).  The singer, Sheeba Khan is a classically trained disciple of Jawaad Ali Khan and Mazhar Ali Khan.

Her delightful husky voice reciting the most exquisite Urdu poetry and Sufi dedications was a sublime experience.  The informal atmosphere led her to take requests from a gushing and appreciative audience.  Sheeba is one of India’s most acclaimed ghazal singers and she especially proved this during her a capella moments.

Look out for her concerts I thoroughly recommend them.
