Description

Music that flows from the heart, reaches the hearts of one and all. So is this album, very thoughtfully titled ‘Dil’, as it stirs the heart of the listener, just like it stirred of Ustad Shujaat Husain Khan when he created this exquisite piece. It begins with Raga Gujri Todi. Shujaat's father Ustad Vilayat Khan used to play this raga at home, in private, adding to the regular notes of the raga, Ma komal. During those times Ustadji asked his son Shujaat to write a composition in this raga. In this album, Ustad Shujaat Husain Khan presents the personal version of Raga Gujri Todi for the first time - ‘karam karte hi jaiye, sarkar madine aiye; allah ki tujhpe rehmat ho,to naam Ali ka gaiye’. Ustad Vilayat Khan never presented this raga in concert or recording, which makes this album all the more special for music lovers. The next heartwarming gem in this album is the lullaby ‘Ek Prakar’ in Raga Todi with Pa added in the jhala part, making it an amazingly enchanting collection.
