Ayaz Ismail was in a Sufi space while composing 'Ghulam-E-Ali'.
Music composer Ayaz Ismail and singer Nakash Aziz have teamed up for the new song "Ghulam-E-Ali". Ismail says the song combines modern as well as ethnic sounds.
"It has elements of Trap and EDM combined with Indian percussion and ethnic instruments like the Mandolin. When I was drafting it, I had visioned various singers and then came in Nakash Aziz," said Ismail.
"When I was making the track, I was in a Sufi space, there was this direct connection with God, and upon his blessings, I was able to finish this track. 'Ghulam-E-Ali' is certainly different from what I have done before," he added.
The song has been penned by Kunaal Vermaa and Amin Vailgy.
"Kunaal has done a wonderful job writing this track, the way he works and portrays a story within a song. This time it was Sufi 'kalaam' and I thought he wrote it beautifully," adds Ayaaz.
"'Ghulam-E-Ali' captures the essence of current times, showcases happiness, and brings out the positivity within us, and asks to pray for well-being. Your direct connection to God," he says about the song, which released on Ismail's official YouTube channel recently.
