    Anyone has heard the band 'Indian Ocean' - Right now I am listening to their song 'Arey ruk Ja re Bande'. Its pretty good. Good Lyrics and great vocals.

    Pratyush, I did see that, but I wasn't sure if you had actually listened to it.

    This probably doesn't fit anywhere near the songs that have been discussed here but i thought i would add this as i thought it was pretty good although i didn't understand a single word.

    Jeff Buckley's rendition of 'Yeh Jo Halka Halka Saroor' is also very good, incidently.
    (and yeah, THAT 'Sharabi'. It's nice to see people's jaw drop after seeing the videos of some of his live performances; the dude lived what he sang)

    I became a fan of Nusrat for the first time at the age of seven, after listening to his contributions to the soundtrack of the iconical PTV drama series, 'Dhuaan' (Smoke).
    I've heard that one, very nice.

    The only music I really enjoy from the subcontient are Gazals. Unfortunately, most of the urdu ones go right over my head, but all suggestions are welcome (I already own all the albums for Jagjit Singh, Fateh Ali Khan, Udhas, etc).

    Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a Qawwalli singer, I dont think he has ever sung Ghazals (I could be wrong though).

    Jagjit Singh is obviously one of the best Ghazal singers with a great voice. If you find the urdu poetry too heavy try some of his lighter stuff, which he has done a lot compared to others. Some of those albums are 'Face to Face', 'Love is Blind', 'Hope', 'Mirage', 'Marasim', 'Unique' , 'Insight', 'milestone' etc. You can also try his ghazals from Indian movies like 'Arth', 'Saath Saath'.

    Yea, I mix the two and like both. In terms of heavyness, it's mostly a lack of understanding of 'high' Urdu. When two Pakistani guys speak Urdu, it's just like Hindi. But when they sing it in Gazals, I have no idea what the hell they are saying.

    I doubt you have all 125 albums by NFAK, but as Sanz said he was a qawwal by trade. I'm not a big fan of ghazals tbh, but I did grow up listening to Mehdi Hasan, Ghulam Ali, Abida Parveen, Iqbal Bano, Munni Begum and Noor Jehan (not her movie song crap).

    Yeah he's done ghazals, plenty of them. In fact some of his more famous "qawwalis" were really ghazals IMO.

    What you are referring to SS, is Urdu Adab. Not many of the general population can understand every word of it.

    Haha, I hear you man. But even when you talk to pakistanis (in hindi/urdu), often they use words that you dont understand the meaning of. At least that has been my expereience.

    That said, I think that is the beauty of Ghazals, apart from the music the sound of the word is so beautiful that even if you dont understand the actual meaning you still want to hear it. Btw what is that ghazal in the link..Cant access youtube.
