Isn’t music the soul of life? Have you ever wondered how some songs make a permanent space in your memories, reminding you of something sweet, something painful you have once endured? No wonder, everyone who has ever loved someone has its own set of songs which hold special place in their heart as they feel those have been made for themselves alone.
To add to this special list of numbers, here is upcoming musician Ishaan Nigam’s latest release on You Tube “Qaafirana, Shayrana.” This independent artist has been churning some heart tugging numbers for a while and his latest has been riding the charts day by day. Who knows it might end up becoming soul music for many.
Hailing from a small town Bahraich in Uttar Pradesh, Nigam is a singer, youtuber and a live performer and is currently based in New Delhi. He started singing at the tender age of 10. He took up his passion more seriously during his college days when he earned laurels in many inter-college levels and national level singing competitions.
In 2015, Nigam was the one amongst the top 20 musicians from India who were selected by UTV Bindass and Disney India to be the part of KMMC, the renowned music institute founded by Dr. A.R. Rahman. At the prestigious institute, this talented singer made his own mark and, along with 20 other musicians, re-composed and performed the song of “Yeh Hai Aashiqui” for UTV Bindass.
In 2018, Nigam made his debut in Tollywood Music Industry and sung a devotional song Kotah Panta Patha Panta composed by Josyabathla Sarma. The song was telecast-ed on SVBC TTD channel for the program Annamayya Pataku Pattaabhishekam which was conducted by legendary music director Shri MM Keervani and Shri K Raghavendra Rao.
Music is not only Nigam’s passion but a part of his whole life. He is Sangeet Praveen in Hindustani Classical Music and is a disciple of Shri Ghulam Hasan Khan (Rampur-Sahaswan Gharana).
Prior to Qaafirana Shayrana, Nigam has released multiple independent original songs on his YouTube channel “Ishaan Nigam” and has been working on more independent songs which are set for further release on his channel.
Check more of his songs right here and let’s together give this amazing talent the much-deserved push. May his soulful music fill the present air of mundane and hopelessness with calm and faith.
