Singer Javed Ali, who has sung tracks like “Jashn-e-bahaaran”, “Arziyan”, “Kun faya kun” and “Tu hi haqeeqat”, is happy with the growth of sufi songs in Bollywood…reports Asian Lite News
“Bollywood music’s boundaries are increasing day by day. In the past there was ghazal-numa geet, then came qawalis which were conceptualised as per the situation,” Ali said in a statement to IANS.
“Nowadays, situational sufi songs are being specially created which is very good. I hope that the trend continues in the long run,” added the singer, who paid tribute to the ghazal maestros with a musical evening at the Rotary Club Fundraiser at the National Centre for the Performing Arts here on Sunday.
He says he loves performing live.
“I perform live in different genres of music like Bollywood, sufi, retro, ghazal… I enjoy performing live and I feel very excited whenever I perform in different genres. It feels great to be a part of the fundraiser for Rotary Club of Mumbai and it’s an honour to come back after two years and perform for this set of audience.”
