It was a rare sight, as we got to listen to Ghulam Ali .
 In the cacophony going on they came as breath of fresh air.
The two ghazzals churned out by the duo were

ye dil ye pagal dil mera (raag bhairavi all over)
hungama hai kyu barpa (raag darbari)
It was interesting to see Ghulam sahab going for lower scale than the song is in, do not know if it was because of his age or Ranjit singing together.

Ghulam sahab is still the king of ghazals as he demonstrated his pakad over several facets of classical singing in hardly a 5 minute performance.

Ranjit was fine but paled out in comparison ...(no offence meant please)

Ghulam Ali is very humble , once in the house of Ustaad Zakir Hussain's house in London while celebrating new year eve, Mehandi Hassan (who was drunk) came across Ghulam Ali and directly challenged him over pakad of sur taal etc. Ghulam sahab bowed out saying he is nothing compared to Mehandi ..! We know the truth of course..!

This story is mentioned in Journey with thousand strings.

All the best to Ranjit, hope he will keep art of ghazal singing alive.

would like to share this ..
I can't sing for Bollywood movies: Ghulam Ali
"Ghazal singing is not easy. You have to train a lot in the way you pronounce Urdu words and ensure that you hit the right notes while singing. It takes time and today's singers are not paying complete attention to it," Ghulam Ali said.
The era of '90s was the best time for ghazals as the genre was at its peak with singers like Jagjit Singh, but later the popularity started dwindling. And I can feel the genre is once again gaining its feet. People are actually coming to hear wherever I perform - whether in India or abroad," he added

Ranjeet of course has a long way to go plus his voice change has been a major hindrance. He was best during the earlier competition stages. Hope to see more of him.
Gulam Sahab is a maestro.

Was nice to see a dream being fulfilled. I liked Ranjit the way he expressed his dream coming true. That art is so much necessary to succeed in this industry and he has that inbuilt in him.

I thought the open stadium was not the best of atmosphere for gazal gayaki. It would have been better if they had invited Ghulam Ali before and both performed in the regular studios. But overall, I enjoyed their singing.
