Sufiscore, a YouTube channel featuring mellifluous melodies, released a beautiful ghazal, “Jashn E Gham,” a label that creates original music in different genres and showcases them with an absolute visual treat.
The poetic lyrics by A M Turaz and musical composition by Salim Sulaiman in Pratibha Singh Baghel‘s voice depict the depths of emotions listeners can relate to through an individual perspective; it evokes a gush of emotions. The human condition associated with sadness, misery, depression, and loneliness is exquisitely told through the ghazal via its unique competition & heart-touching lyrics. It is beautifully arranged and produced by violin virtuoso and maestro producer Deepak Pandit along with music producer Gaurav Vaswani which is brought to life by the enchanting voice of Pratibha Singh Baghel.
Directed by Rajeev Goswami, Jashn E Gham features sitar genius Purbayan Chatterjee who Naveen Kumar joins on flute, and Prashant Sonagra on tabla with keys and synths by Gaurav Vaswani. Raj Pandit recorded Pratibha’s vocals, and it’s been mixed in stereo and for Dolby ATMOS by K Sethuraman.
Salim Merchant is among India’s most respected composers. He and Sulaiman have composed several records incorporating cinematic, folk, electronica, and Sufi influences into their music. “Jashn-E-Gham is a piece of my heart. Me & Sulaiman truly enjoyed composing this song for Pratibha & Sufiscore. My friend A M Turaz has written exactly what I was looking for. It’s wonderfully arranged & produced by a very talented Deepak Pandit. It’s co-produced by Gaurav Vaswani. The video has been directed & choreographed by the very gifted Rajeev Goswami.
I am looking forward to this eagerly. And hoping that it will touch everyone’s heart.”
Recognized by A.R.Rahman himself as a generational voice, Pratibha Singh Baghel’s mesmerizing voice never fails to captivate audiences and proves her to be an iconic figure in the music industry. “Jashn-E-Gham is a dynamic contemporary ghazal that will take its place in the industry. As we all know, the Duo Salim- Sulaiman are known for their haunting, beautiful melodies. Now the surprise is that the maestro Deepak Pandit who we all know as a great violinist/music composer & Music Arranger has produced & arranged this song alongside renowned music producer Gaurav Vaswani. Renowned writer A M Turaz Ji writes this ghazal. The video was directed by Rajeev Goswami, a known choreographer, and director. It’s a special connection again as Salim-Sulaiman, I & Rajeev Goswami come back together for this song after Umrao Jaan Ada The Musical. Hoping this would surely touch your hearts, and you will give it all your love like always”
Deepak Pandit, known as one of the best violinists in the country, his favorite album is ‘Samvedha,’ where he composed music, and Jagjitji lent his vocal to Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s poem “Jashn E Gham means celebrating the past, celebrating the moments lived together. The lyrics of the ghazal are unique; that’s its biggest attraction. Salim- Sulaiman composed the song beautifully. According to the composition, music is arranged and orchestrated. Pratibha Ji has done an outstanding job; she is a great artist. I want to thank Sufiscore for promoting good and original content. I want to congratulate the technical team and the core team for doing such a terrific job. An M Turaz Ji has written the ghazal very well. Rajiv Goswami Ji is great in direction.”
A M Turaz, a music director, music composer, writer, lyricist, and poet from India, “The lyrics of the song will nurture all those with a broken heart. Everyone has done an outstanding job which reflects in the song. Keeping our fingers crossed.”
