Mohammed Rafi (Source: wikipedia.org)

Mohammad Rafi (December 24, 1924 – July 31, 1980) was an Indian recording artist who is considered by many to be one of the greatest Indian playback singers of the Hindi film industry. In his lifetime, he was awarded theNational Film Award, Best National Singer Award and six Filmfare Awards. In 1967, he was honoured with thePadma Shri award by the Government of India. In 2000, the Stardust magazine named him the “Best Singer of the Millenium.” His singing career spanned about 35 years. Rafi is noted for his ability to sing songs of different moods and varieties: They ranged from classical numbers to patriotic songs, sad lamentations to highly romantic numbers, qawwalis to ghazals and bhajans. He is best known for romantic and duet songs and, as a playback singer, his ability to mould his voice to the persona of the actor lip-synching the song.

Rafi is primarily noted for his songs in Hindi-Urdu, over which he had a strong command. He sang in other Indian languages including AssameseKonkaniBhojpuriOriyaPunjabiBengaliMarathiSindhiKannadaGujarati,Telugu, Maghi, and Maithili. He also recorded a few songs in EnglishPersianSpanish and Dutch. From available figures, Rafi sang 4,516 Hindi film songs, 112 non-Hindi film songs, and 328 private (non-film) songs from 1945 to 1980. (Source: Wikipedia.org)

Vishwaas Ki Goonj – The Echo Of Faith (with English subtitles)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on February 18, 2011

This is a BAN Films Production video…

—In a world increasingly being dominated by extremist and radical ideologies, faith is being used to propagate hatred and divide people.

Vishwaas Ki Goonj – The Echo Of Faith‘ brings to us the universal message of all religions and conveys mankind’s ability to practice and uphold the notion of ‘oneness of beings’.

Ustad Meraj Ahmed Nizami Qawwal belongs to the community of the Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah, birthplace of qawwali and tomb of its founders.

He owns the kalifa of the lineage of the Qawwal Bacche, sons of the original qawwal singers trained by Amir Khusro. His family continued the tradition over 700 years and 30 generations.

Ustad Meraj Ahmad Nizami started his training in classical music as a child, under the rigorous tutelage of his father, Ustad Yaqub Ali Khan (Piarey Khan Sahib). Today, he is in charge of the Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya Dargah in Delhi and has been performing at the Dargah of Sufi Hazrat Inayat Khan every week for the past 40 years.

Ustad Meraj Nizami’s memory is as legendary as his knowledge of languages and poetry. He knows over a thousand qawwali’s and many more poems by heart in many languages: Arabic, Persian, Hindi, Urdu, etc. He masters various genres of classical music, such as Dhrupad, Khayal, Tarana, Thumri and Dadra, which he blends beautifully during his performances of Qawwali. His style of singing is at once tender, direct and pure.
