Ahmed and Mohammed Hussain are two singing brothers, members of famous musical family from Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan, a state in India. They specialize in classical ghazals, beautiful songs of love and loss with ancient roots in Arabic poetry, as well as bhajan, or prayer songs. Together the brothers have released some 50 albums, starting with their first successful record in 1980; their music has been featured in some popular Indian films, too. As a “brother duo,” the Hussains are unique in the world of ghazals, and their sons have continued the family’s singing tradition.
