An evening of Ghazals, Sham-e-Ghazal by Ustad Sabir Habeeb Khan, was organised at the University of Hyderabad (UoH) under the Campus Concert Series on 5 November 2015.
Ustad Sabir Habeeb Khan, disciple of Ghazal legend Ustad Ghulam Ali mesmerized the audience with soul-stirring rendition. Ustad Dr. Sanjay Kingi, desciple of Ustad Shahid Pervez, a physician by profession and a musician by passion ably accompanied on Sitar and was able to engage the audience fully with the soulful music. The accompanying artiste on Tabla was Ustad Sardar Khan, disciple of Ustad Shabbir Nisar, who could adequately catch people’s imagination during the concert. All three artistes have been performing for the last three decades in India as well as abroad.
Compositions presented during the Sham-e-Ghazal like Kal Chaudahvi Ki Raat Thi, Hum Aaaye Hain Tere Shahar Me Ajanabi Ki Tarah, Bhar Do Jholi etc. successfully sensitised soft human elements of joy, affection, brotherhood among the audience comprising of the UoH campus fraternity and outside guests who were seen joyfully enjoying the concert.
