Nazeel was gifted from early childhood in being able to put words into harmony. His talent was first noticed by his mother who inspired him at a very young age to memorise and recite classical Bengali poetry and songs. He learned many of these from his maternal uncle, a prominent Bengali singer-songwriter and poet.
Nazeel has put his voice to good use by learning the art of reciting the Quran from several masters. His lyrical gift is borne as much out of his life experiences as his love for languages. His travels have enabled him to draw liberally from vocal and harmonic traditions in India and the Middle East in particular, and bring them home to his place of birth in the north-west of England. Beyond the studio, Nazeel divides his time between studying languages and history, and several projects, one of which involves working with a dedicated group of individuals who have been helping young people discover their talents.
Nazeel has spent time in a rich milieu of distinguished poets, scholars and composers from across three continents, including Ustadh Ijaz Rahmani and Shaykh Ayman Swaid. This is his first album, and he has poured his flair and passion into its simmering crucible.
Nazeel is currently working on his first album. The first single from this album should be released in the first quarter of 2006, it is entitled 'Dunya'.
