He experienced Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, for the first time, when he was in his early youngsters. When elder Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan had come to Kabul the capital of Afghanistan and, on the way back to India, Ghulam Ali’s DAD requested the Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan to take his son as a student.
But Ustad urged that since he was hardly in town, regular training wouldn’t be possible. But after requests again n again from Ali’s DAD, Bade Ghulam Ali Khan asked the young Ghulam Ali to sing something. It was difficult to have the courage to sing before him. Young Ghulam Ali mustered the great courage to sing the Thumri “Saiyyan Bolo Tanik Mose”. In the end, Ustad hugged him and made him his student.
Pakistani Ghazal Singer Ghulam Ali began singing for Radio Pakistan from Lahore in 1960. He is known for blending Gharana-Gaayaki into ghazal and this gives his singing the proficiency to touch people’s hearts and soul. He attractively sings Punjabi songs as well. Most of his Punjabi songs have been very popular.
Aye Husn e Beparwah Tujhe Shabnam Kahun Shola Kahun
Apni Tasveer Ko Aankhon Se
Arz-e-gham say bhi faida tu nahin
Saqi Sharab La
Barsan Lagi Sawan Bundiya Raja
Bechain bahut phirna ghabraye hue rehna
Chhup Chhupa Ke Piyo
Dard-e-dil dard aashna jaane
Dil Buk Buk Ahro
Dil dhadakne ka sabab yaad aaya
Gajalu Ti Thula Thula Aankha
Hum To Kitnon Ko Mahzabeen Kehte Hain
