CNYDesi presents the legend Sajjad Ali live in concert in San Jose!
Sajjad Ali has 2.5M+ fans across the globe. A legendary Pakistani pop icon, he was born in 1966, hailing from Pakistan, belonging to the Kasur Patiala Gharana of classical musicians. He is the son of the well-known film actor/cricketer Shafqat Hussain Aka Sajan.
His skills are not just limited to singing; he is a great poet, actor, and film producer and director as well.
Some of his popular songs include “Ravi”, “Babia”, “Sohni Lag Di”, “Cinderella”, “Tum Naraz Ho” and many more.
Musician A.R. Rahman has described Sajjad as the original crossover. “From the realm of the classical, he metamorphosed into one of the brightest lights of Pakistani pop. Always striking the right note, and never missing a beat, even the most hardened purist has to give Sajjad his due. This man can breathe life in a Ghazal even as he puts the V back into verve. He is one of the very few singers in Pakistan who seems a complete singer. As far as skill is concerned, I feel nobody compares to Sajjad Ali. He is simply too good at everything he chooses to create.”
