Bashir, who recently toured Doha for a couple of sufi oriented events, was welcomed by the Classical Music Listeners. His two back to back performances in Doha Cinema and the Diplomatic Club simply amazed Doha’s audience. In an interview there, Bashir talked about his performance and musical ventures.
About his performance and audience the prominent Sufi singer and lyricist said: “It was very encouraging to see people in Qatar enjoying Sufi music as much as I enjoyed singing it for them”. For the very first time, he also said something about leaving his band.
Javed Bashir on his departure from Mekaal Hasan Band:
“The differences between me and the band grew too strong, and it became increasingly difficult for us to work together. The way Mekaal and I work is very different, and I think it was in my best interest to leave the group” Bashir said.
As now he has gone solo, and recently launched a complete album ‘Sub Rung’ with Times of India, Bashir is now looking for playback singing for Bollywood. Reportedly, he has recorded three(3) songs with renown Indian/bollywood music composers – Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, Vishal Shekhar and Monty Sharma.
As a student of legendary Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan and Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Will Javed Bashir also be able to do some blast in Bollywood ? Can he become a strong contender of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan? Well, it would be so early to claim something but we believe if his couple of songs hit the charts, he has all the potential to become the next apple of eyes for bollywood music producers.
