Roadblocks come across in every journey, but how one takes up the challenge to cross them is the real deal. Pursuing his parents for permitting him to walk the road of music as his career, Tariq Faiz learned the art of classical music and went around creating magic with his expertise in composing and vocalizing the art of words.

With immense dedication, he penned down the lyrics of ‘Khoon Jism Me Bahey’, an intriguing song on menstruation, sung by Rasika Borkur and Krutika Borkar, which was done as a project for an NGO, free of cost. The song is one of its kind and was formally introduced by the notable Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis. 

Being an MBBS understudy, his parents always wanted him to choose a stable career option and were not in complete support of his music choices. It was only later when former Guardian Minister, Dr. Ranjeet Patil Sir presented him with an award for his commendable skills, Tariq’s parents understood that he had made the right choice and hence were proud of the singer.

Having shared the stage with Rahat Indori Sahab and Kumar Vishwas, Tariq believes to be fortunate enough that life presented him with such opportunities and he didn’t let them go. He says, “I do not come from a background where music is considered a prominent profession. I have had my fair share of troubles with it earlier, but now it gets better with each passing day. Ramiz Faiz, my friend, and brother is a master of tabla and a great composer, because of whom I was always motivated to stay on this musical path. I rehearsed roughly 8-10 hours a day due to his ongoing assistance and hence I stand here today.”

He further got training in classical music from Ustadji Dr. Niraj Lande, a great Indian Classical Vocalist from Patiala Gharana as well as from Dagar Gharana, Disciple of Legendary Ustad Sayiduddeen Dagar Sahab. His brother Aftab Qadri also played a huge role in giving him opportunities to host stage concerts all across the country.

The man proved that with constant work in the field, one can attain what they dream of and nothing at the end stands between you and success. Certainly, hearing Tariq Faiz’s compositions is itself like hearing a gem.
