Ehsaan Ahmed Bharti Ghunghroowale, as the name itself suggests, represents the rich tradition of a composite culture that is on a fading course. Not only does his name reflect the richness of this culture through his unfathomably large repertoire of poetry that flows out of him effortlessly in his qawwali sessions, he inspires others with what we have forgotten, the underlying similarity of all faiths. With equal command over Persian, Sanskrit, Urdu, Hindi and Pali, he delivered a mind-boggling alliterative composition in a tempo that kept changing in volume and rhythm, both, adding to the dramatic effect of the qawwali presentation. But that was just a sample of Ehsaan's extraordinary talents that earned him a place in the Guinnese Book of World Records in 1995. Ehsaan hails from a family of traditional Sufi qawwals of Meerut who used to sing only spiritual compositions. When the decline of this form began Ehsaan started working on a novel way for survival. For seven years he practiced a unique voice art in a closed room by putting his head inside a pitcher (ghada) to create a sound of ghunghroos. Today, he takes his listeners to a realm of disbelief by translating the most difficult musical composition into the sound of ghunghroos that he creates only through his vocal chords. He can sing the same song in 84 different ways. Well, yes, so can you and us. The difference is, he trained for it. Ehsaan Bharati is an audiences' man with his filmi qawwalis. He can make his crowds dance to his numbers. But the uniqueness of this qawwal is he can adjust and re-adjust his vocal chords to produce the sound of ghungroo and pajeb in as many as 84 different styles. Due to this wonderful art, he has won many hearts in India and other countries. He has travelled to many places in the country and abroad. In addition to the filmi qawwalis, he also performs muqabla qawwalis and sufiana qawwalis.
