ziz has composed ghazals for TV serial Noorjehan written by prolific Nida Fazli , the songs set in the 15th century Mughal period ambience. While the influences range from the Middle Eastern and Afghani to Kashmiri and Rajasthani, the styles cover ghazals, qawwalis, bhajans , north Indian and simple ballads.

alat Aziz as a composer always believes in complete creative freedom, it is this that makes superlative results possible. Talat had once for a qawwali song auditioned several good singers who just could not fulfill his vision. He wanted to feel the genuine, spiritual qawwali. In search of the right singers he travelled all the way to Sambhal, a remote village near Moradabad. There he discovered an anonymous pair of singers. They had natural talent without any technical expertise at the mike. Talat worked on them and eventually got fabulous results. This anonymous pair was Sarfaraz Chisty and Nizam.


 

alat always says, "I am a ruthless composer, I sing only those songs which do not suit someone else better." Singers including Sonu Nigam, Jaspinder Narula & Sadhana Sargam, all of whom sound different under Talat's baton. Talat gives full credits to his singers for fulfilling the needs of the song.
