Gham-e-Ashiqui – new song by Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali

A tale of love that was lost. The reminiscence of the beloved, the expression of pain and agony of a lover.

Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and composer Kamran Akhtar came across the soul of this song in the poetry of the great Poetess Parveen Shakir (Late). Her poetry has warmed up many hearts and twinkled tears in multifarious eyes. She is probably the most sought after female romantic poetry writers of her times. Her work has kept her alive in the hearts of reader for three decades. Kamran Akhtar, the composer and organizer of this song, felt a strong connection with the poetry and couldn’t resist asking Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to consider singing this due to his quality of putting embodiment and utterance to the lyrics he chorus. Khan sensed the melodic of the songs along with it composition is easy to grasp & apprehensive for the masses – yet it portrays a cavernous and intense sense of realistic and zealous love.

Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan said,” I give credence that this song shall touch the hearts of the listeners and has the ability to fill out to listeners, bringing back nostalgia from younger days when they were hopelessly in love”.

Producer Salman Ahmed was steadfast after listening to the poetry and composition to produce and release this song as a single. His belief in the soulful voice of Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and his ability to pick the right song, like he did at the time of Zaroori tha, has brought this treat to persuade the auditory sensations of the millions of fans of khan across the Universe. “In these times of isolation and unbearable consequences – it’s an aspiration to bring great music and feed soulful singing to the world. Lift spirits and inspire people” said Salman Ahmed – the Producer.
