Ghazal and bhajan workshop is being conducted at the ongoing 21 day ‘Sankritik Virasat Prashikshan Shivir’ at the City Palace. Ustad Ahmad Hussain and Ustad Mohd. Hussain are facilitators of the workshop. 15 children are learning ghazal and bhajan and their styles by both the teachers.
During the workshop, shayar Naseem Rifat’s ghazal ‘Kya Tumne Bhi Pyar Kiya Hai Sach Bolo, Dil Pe Kiska Naam Likha Hai Sach Bolo, Chehra Kuch Kahta Hai Tum Kuch Kahte Ho, Tumse Kitni Baar Kaha Hai Sach Bolo’ is being practised by the students. This ghazal is based on raag ‘Bhairavi’. Children are also being trained for Durga Stuti ‘Asur Haradi Dusht Dalani Singh Vahini Durge Maa’ based on raag ‘Sohani’.
It is to be noted that Ustad Ahmad Hussain inherited this talent from his father. He started his career from Akash Vani, Jaipur in 1959 as a child artist. Today, they have composed 80 commercial albums. The famous song ‘Aaya Tere Dar Pe Deewana’ from the bollywood movie ‘Veer Zara’ was sung by them.
