Saturday night at Earth Cafe Lounge in Jubliee Hills was abuzz, with music connoisseurs across the city gathering for a delightful experience of soulful Sufi renditions by Mir Mujeeb Khan. Hosted by Irshad Ali and Syed Ahmed Hussain Hamid, the event was well received and thoroughly enthralled the audience. A scrumptious dinner served to be the cherry on top.
Music has been a passion for Mir Mujeeb Khan from childhood, introduced the host of the evening. A corporate employee now, he still holds music close to heart and is the lead vocalist of the band in his office.
The ensemble included Mir Mujeeb Khan at the vocals, Hussain Khan on tabla, Sunil on harmonium, Anup Kamble on keyboard and Sanjay on digital percussion. Sunil opened the concert with a beautiful performance of Hosh walon ko khabar kya, a classic by the iconic Indian Ghazal musician Jagjit Singh, followed by other popular numbers.
Mir Mujeeb Khan took over the stage next, and charmed the audience with a lovely rendition of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Koi to hai jo nizam e hasti chala raha hai, followed by Kailash Kher’s Heere moti main na chaahoo and Teri deewani, among others.
