Gayiye Ganapati Jag Vandan & Tum Bin Mori Kaun Khabar Le songs by Ustad Ahmed Hussain and Ustad Mohammad Hussain

I love, very much love, Hindustani, ghazal and qawwali vocal devotional songs whether the worship is of Hindu tradition or of Islam tradition. Such songs cast a spell on me!

I had heard and thoroughly enjoyed Gayiye Ganapati Jag Vandan song audio over the past few years. Today I got to see a video rendering of it! What an awesome treasure house youtube has become!

Ganpati Vandana Ahmad Hussain_Mohammad Hussain, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdl4TwnIt-Y, 11 min 6 secs (the song gets over after around 10 mins after which there is audio silence for most of the remainder of the video).

I love this song which seems to be a Meera bhajan: Only audio with still pic (audio quality is not all that great in some parts; listeners should please tolerate it) : Tum bin mori kaun khabar le govardhan giridhari, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfWz_05929o, 5 min 39 secs

About the singers from their wiki page, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahmed_and_Mohammed_Hussain :

Ahmed Hussain and Mohammed Hussain are ghazal singers from Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan state in India. Ahmed and Mohammed Hussain are two brothers who sing classical ghazals. Born in Rajasthan as sons of the famous ghazal and thumri singer Ustad Afzal Hussain, the duo touches genres like Indian classical music and bhajan as well as ghazal. They started their singing career in 1958 as classical and thumri artists. Their first album Guldasta was released in 1980 and was successful. Since then they have released about 50 albums.

Ravi: Truly blessed is the land of Bharat (India) to have such talented singers from the Islamic tradition like the Ustads Ahmed and Mohammad Hussain, even today in this early 21st century, singing songs in praise of God in the Hindu tradition, and giving joy to Hindus like me as well as people of other faiths.
