‘Hum banjaare haiń, hum banjaaroń ko, ghar ke darwazoń se.. deewaroń se Kya lena..’- Rahat sabab.

Sharing a bunch of pictures from my solo gig in Bombay last weekend. What a wonderful melodious audience. And such patience and reception towards urdu poetry and prose. This was so moving, I can’t stop doing this anymore.

Finally found my voice after a decade or so in the poetry of poets like Jaun Elia as I embark on a journey of recording my solo music this year. Sharing a little intimate piece from it. This one’s called ‘Hum kaun thae’. #debutalbum #solomusic #sameerrahat #duniyadaari #jaunelia #ahmedfaraz #faizahmedfaiz #rahatindori #urdublues #folkrock #urdupoetry #urdu
I used to often wonder, how did I get into music when it doesn’t really run in the family until I found this picture. Here I am blabbering some random notes and testing her patience, not knowing that I’m absorbing so much music during these sessions. ‘Aapke baare mai likhne ki koshishe kar sakta hun, bas na-kaam koshishe.’ Itne saare sabra ke liye shukriya Maa.

I’ll be spinning this beautiful masterpiece by @andrewlloydwebber and Tim Rice on the Record store day tomorrow. I picked up this record from a charity shop in Brighton last year. Lucky to have stumbled upon this rare gem. What will you be listening to?? #recordstoreday #recordstoreday2018

Maa reciting one of my favourite poems by her specially for me before I leave for Bombay again. Her poetry is mostly straightforward yet so profound. It’s unbelievable how true these words sound to everyone and they can relate to them in their own way. “Zindagi se bahut dooriyañ hai, zinda rehna bhi majbooriyañ haiñ”
