Faiz sung in Adeel Burki’s voice


A private function at Faiz Ghar brought smiles to faces in the audience as Adeel burki’s golden voice sang Ghazals of Faiz. The Adab Saraee Literary Forum organized the program to celebrate the Faiz centennial. The program titled “Aao Sur Mein Fazi Ki Baatein Karein” was held at the Faiz Ghar, with a small private gathering but open to all. Adeel Burki was a student of Ustad Israr Ahmad Sahib and Muhammad Sadiq, who taught him to play instruments and to sing raags. He has sung Ghalib, Josh Malihabadi, Faiz Ahmad Faiz, Aatish, Perveen Shakir, Faraz and Wasih Shah among others.
His renditions of ‘Sheikh Sahib Say Rasam-o-Rah Na Kee Shukar Hai Zindagi Tabah Na Ki’ and ‘Zindagi Say Yehi Gillah Hai Mujhe, Tu Bahut Dair Say Milla Hay Mujhe’ by Faraz are remembered by many people, but here at the Faiz centennial, he sang several Faiz ghazals that were thouroughly enjoyed by the audience. Burki was once also offered a chance to sing with Lata Mangeshkar for the film ‘In Do Naino Kay Beech’ by Gulshan Kumar. However the film remained unannounced due to the tragic death of Gulshan Kumar.
