(Boney Bindra) I was four when I first encountered the voice of Allah himself, he was singing through a Quwwal on TV and people were literally showering money upon him.
His voice, his love for music, his knowledge for music and his passion for the art is unmatchable.
Not a single one of us have heard Tansen, the famous singer from the palace of Akabar-The Great, but Nusrat surely would have make him make for his money.
Such was the brilliance of this Ustad, but, indeed he was a real Ustad.
Today is 13th October, the birth anniversary of this modern classic, let’s then have a dip in Nusrat’s river of honey, his top ten songs;
1.) Mere Rashke Qamar
2.) Tumhe Dillagi Bhul Jani Padegi
3.) Hai Kahan Ka Irada, Tumhara Sanam
4.) Sochta Hoon Ke Wo Kitne Masoom The
5.) Ye Jo Halka Halka Suroor Hai
6.) Sweet Pain (Ni Sayiyon Assan)
7.) Akhiyan Nu Chain Na Awe
8.) Dam Mast Qalander
9.) Jhoole Jhoole Lal
10.) Akhiyan Udeek Diyan
Bonus Tracks, Because, Why Not?
1.) Laal Meri Pat Rakhiyo
2.) Tum Ikk Gorakh Dhandha Ho (Personal Favorite)
