"Breaking from the usual themes, this month the theme is melodies and ghazals. What is a Ghazal anyway? Apparently Ghazal in short, is a collection of Shers which follow the rules of 'Matla', 'Maqta', 'Beher', 'Kaafiyaa' and 'Radif'. And melodies in this context is music pleasing to the ear and the soul. The antithesis of Sheila ki Jawani and Fevicol Se.
Since it is difficult to sing a Ghazal on a Karaoke track, we will have accompaniment on Tabla by Shonali Srivastava and on harmonium by Prasun Kumar Jha, a big thanks to both of them! Live accompaniment will only be between 9-10pm and pre-screened, so please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to perform with live music.
Melodies do not have particular singers or an era. Any song soothing to the listener is welcome.
