Qawwali – a style and format of writing and music composition that has nearly vanished from Hindi films.

A gift for you fans who keep his name, and name of his co-creators of songs (the singers, composers, musicians, directors, story writers, actors, producers… of his films) ALIVE, by hearing and sharing his songs (and songs of some other as good or even better lyricists) via social media and music platforms etc. – a chronological list of his qawwalis, curated by me:

Thanks also to the songs’ co-creators – music composers, singers, directors, musicians, sound recordists, story writers, producers, cinematographers, actors….. it is always team work, no one is an island.
