Ghulam Ali to Perform in Kerala in January

GHULAM Ali, ghazal legend from Pakistan, whose concerts in Maharashtra and Delhi were cancelled recently, will perform in Kerala twice in January. The 75-year-old singer is scheduled to perform in the state capital on January 15 and in Kozhikode on January 17 at the invitation of social organisation 'Swaralaya'.

An office bearer of Swaralaya said that the singer had confirmed his participation. The organisation would also honour Ali during the function.  The singer could not be reached for comments. Two of Ali's scheduled concerts in Mumbai and Pune in October were cancelled following protests from Shiv Sena while he backed out from his Delhi programme last month citing personal reasons. The Shiv Sena had held that while tension remained at the Indo-Pak border, such a concert could not be allowed.
