There’s something effortless and natural about Nabeel Shaukat Ali’s performances as he gracefully swims between classical notes, western elements and everything in between. His journey from the time he entertained live audience over the years with his melodies, to the early days of being tutored by Ustad Ghulam Ali, he has managed to explore his skills as a varied vocalist, a songwriter as well as a composer.
The first singer (and the only so-far) in his family, Shaukat started proving his yearning to be a performer from a rather early age. As luck backed him up, his track record with singing competitions always remained consistent, ever since he first gained international attention with his award for the ‘Best Child Artist’ at a contest held in 1997 in Dubai. And more recently bagged the winning trophy at an Indo-Pak musical series, Sur Kshetra that brought along unprecedented amount of fame for the Lahore born.
Shaukat will flaunt his melodic debut this year on Coke Studio, Season 8, in an effort to continue pursuing his dreams, and with plans to release an album before year-end.
