From the Archives: Ghulam Ali

Ghulam Ali

We go back in time to the early days of the Washerman’s Dog blog (before the advent of Harmonium) when we shared this all Punjabi folk album from the great Ghulam Ali.

The album was released in 1981 at a time when Ghulam Ali was not yet a massively popular artist in India. He was beloved by critics and a small audience of music ‘aficionados’ but was still not a name that rolled off the lips of the average music-listening public.  And the selection of songs included on this record reflect a rather ‘conservative’ and safe approach: songs based on traditional Punjabi folk-epics and one of its greatest mystical poets, Waris Shah.
