Black Sapphire and Rock On Music brings to you, for the very first time, Shafqat Amanat Ali, live in concert with top musicians from Pakistan.
Shafqat Amanat Ali – the rockstar Ustad is the biggest singing sensation to hit the subcontinent in recent times. The singer, writer, composer is the son of the legendary Pakistani singer Ustad Amanat Ali Khan, making him a part of the nine generation old Patiala Gharana.
He has been a student of the classical music tradition of India and Pakistan since age four. He was inspired towards music by his father, his uncle Ustad Fateh Ali Khan sahib as well as Roshanara Begum, to name a few.
Shafqat’ s voice represents a unique blend of classical gayaki and contemporary panache. The soul in his powerful voice has the rare ability, which can carry the listener to the peaks of ecstasy and the depths of pain within moments. This very versatility makes him a vocalist par excellence. As the soulful voice traverses a gamut of emotions, the sheer perfection of his gayaki leaves the listener spellbound.
Shafqat will be supported by Mistu Bardhan from India.
This concert is presented by Ria Financial services. It’s a Black Sapphire and Rock On Music Production.
