Qwaalis

For Qawwali lovers and music lovers, a style and format of writing and music composition that has nearly vanished from Hindi films. Someone should write a feature on qawwalis by all lyricists. Maybe Ganesh V can do justice to such a feature as he has a old soul with a contemporary heart.


Gift for you lovely fans who keep his name and that of his co-creators (singers composers directors, story writers, actors, producers…) ALIVE by hearing and sharing his songs (and songs of other as good or better lyricists too):

List of Anand Bakshi’s QAWWALI’s I have curated a list of from 1958 to 1972. Let me know of of his qawwalis post 1972, post them below so I can add them to my list. Thank you. These are all written by him, authencticated by me from his song recording dates.
