Early Career

Ali Haider

Ali Haider

His first album was Jane Jan Sun which included the title songs of jawaniyan, and Dhoop Kinare sung along with Nayyara Noor. This album was released by EMI and is obsolete in market; however, it may be found in some collections. The 2nd album he released was titled “Chahat”, the music of which was given by Bunny and had a song with Sadaf Munir (now Sadaf Iqbal). That album was purchased by HMV India. Two of the most popular songs from the album were “Chahat” and “Ajnabi”.With the moderate success of his second album, he released his third album, titled Qarar, which was much better than his previous two albums. It consisted of songs such as Qarar (the title song), Shehnahee and Jadu Kiya, which went on to become top hits. Amir khan, Bunny and Ali Haider himself, composed the music of this album. As Haider improved so did his music, his fourth album, Sandesa produced the hit songs Purani Jeans and Sandesa, which went to the top of the charts and remained at the top for a number of weeks.[2] album  released by EMI and is - obsolete in market

Hit Albums

His next album, Pakola Album did moderately well with songs such as Zaalim Nazron Say and Laila making it into the charts. His sixth album, Dastaan is known to be the best album Haider has produced since his career started. It shot straight to number one and brought him great popularity at that time. In this album he produced a variety of music genres that suited pretty much anyone. The songs responsible for his popularity were Walawai, Papa Mummi and Ranjha Heer.After some time, Haider released the album “The Best of Ali Haider”, which pretty much summoned up that he is ending his music career. The album included all his major hits and favorite songs he had produced in the past. Some of the songs included in this collection were Purani Jeans, Walawai, Qarar and Sandesa.After a gap of three years Haider released two more albums Mahi and Saaiyan, which along with some new tracks also included the remix versions of his classic hits, Purani Jeans and Qarar.The two experiments that he did in the course of his career were his debut film, Chalo Ishq Laraein, and his first trance album, Jadu. Jadu was released before its time. At that time, trance music was relatively new in UK, it wasn’t there in India and it wasn’t in Pakistan at all. No one had done trance music in Urdu and it was a big jump from ‘Saiyaan’ and ‘Mahi’, plus the video was very bold too.So with a very mediocre response from Jadu, the grapevine got that he was at the crossroad of his musical career, but he proved everyone wrong one more time by giving his hit single Chandni Raatein, which was an instant hit among the masses. Even his next album, Tera Naam Liya Tou was a huge success in Pakistan and especially UK, and made it to the number one spot on BBC Asia. His whole tour was a hit because of its title track.[3] whole tour was a hit because of -   its title track

For personal reasons Haider took a hiatus from music in 2009 and became a Sanah khuwan. During this time he did not use music at any level to express himself and rather released various religious albums in the course of the next three years, and conveyed his then state of mind only through reading and reciting, which helped him realize his spiritual side.

Returned To Music

But after taking a three years gap from music he returned with his album “Kee Jana Main Kuan”, which was released in the year 2012 by EMI music India. It was like his come back music album focusing on the sayings and poetry of Sufi saints like Baba Bulley shah and Sultan Bahu to name a few.And hoping to revive the dying pop genre again, he once more started composing songs, which have meaning, love and compassion and released his last album in early 2013 titled, “Bachpan Ki Badami Yadein”. In true form this album was his come back album, his return to his first love, which is music. Each and every song in this album is very distinctive and narrative (a true Ali Haider style) in nature. He dedicated this album to both his daughters who he considers the sole reason for his return to music.[5] He dedicated this album to both -   his daughters
