Talat Aziz releases first ghazal single online


MUMBAI: Ghazal singer Talat Aziz has released his latest single ‘Wo Sham’ on the digital platform.

The nostalgic themed track is about unfulfilled love where the lover is reminiscing some romantic moments and yearning for his lost love. Aziz has composed the track himself.  The music has been programmed by Raju Shankar and supervised by Jeetu Shankar who have worked with Talat Aziz for more than two and a half decades. This ghazal has been written by aspiring poet Gul Rukh Khan who hails from a Nawabi family and has keen interest and love for Urdu, says a release.

The song is currently available on Artist Aloud, Hungama, iTunes India and iTunes International.

The music has been arranged and programmed in a contemporary style yet retains the ethos and flavour of the poetry.

Says Aziz, “The romantic soulful ghazal aptly embodies unrequited love. In melody what strikes a chord are expressions of bitter-sweet love, ‘Wo Shaam’ is the best expression of such wistful emotion. I personally feel that all songs which have a yearning, be it film or any genre specially the ghazal which itself means speaking to your beloved have a very long life.”

Our take –

Talat Aziz has a soulful voice that renders itself beautifully to a ghazal. But this particular offering, that runs on for the better part of ten minutes, has nothing original to offer. The lyrics in particular are more on the humdrum side, and the music nothing to hum about. If you are in a mellow mood, ‘Wo Sham’ can help you shed a few quiet tears on unrequited love, but the mood dissipates as soon as the track trickles to an end.

Here’s where you can listen to the track-
