Ghazal is a poetic form consisting of rhyming couplets. Mehdi Hassan and Ghulam Ali are considered as two of the most famous ghazal singers of all times. This compilation “Ghazal- For the First Time Together-VOL-1” is a rare recording of ghazals sung by the two maestros on the same stage. This is Mehdi Hassan & Ghulam Ali Live First time.

Ghazal is an ancient form of music originating in the 6th century Arabic verses. Ghazals came to South Asia through the Sufi mystics and the new Islamic Sultanate. Initially the poetry which was Urdu shayeri and the language used in Ghazals were of a very high standard and demanded an erudite listenership. But gradually it evolved into more popular formats to attain mass listenership. Gradually these urdu songs often shifted from the classical background it was based from.
