Join The Second Floor (T2F) for an evening of rare and popular ghazals with singer and composer, Sagheer Ahmed Mir.
Sagheer Ahmed Mir first learned music from Ustad Chand Khan of the Jaipur gharana. He also learned from Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan and Ustad Allaudin Khan. His training was in classical vocals and with time, he was drawn towards rendering semi-classical forms such as thumri, dadra, and ghazals and also started to include folk songs and geets into his repertoire.
Sagheer has been performing on radio, television, and in live shows for the last fifteen years, which also include performances in India. He is an ardent follower of the ghazal maestro, the late Ustad Mehdi Hasan, who has greatly influenced his vocal rendition and style.
Sagheer Ahmed Mir will be accompanied on the tabla by Yousuf Kerai and on sitar by the young prodigy, Shehroze Hussain.
