Review

The ghazal as a musical form first became popular in the early 20th century in the Indian subcontinent. As a poetic form, the ghazal has Middle Eastern origins dating back to pre-Islamic times, and its subjects typically deal with themes of illicit and unattainable love. Universal Music continues to mine the treasure troves of Indian and Pakistani ghazals with their Essential world music series. Essential: Ghazals 2, Vol. 3 features 12 tracks by classic ghazal singers like Pankaj Udhas, Chandan Dass, and Rajendra Mehta. With tracks ranging from the 1970s to the 2000s, this is a great introduction to the genre that will also please ghazal enthusiasts. ~ Timothy Monger
