Mehadi Hassan The great gazal and classical singer.

 

Career

The struggle ended when Mehdi Hassan was given the opportunity to sing on Radio Pakistan in 1957, primarily as a thumri singer, which earned him recognition within the musical fraternity. At the time, Ustad Barkat Ali Khan, Begum Akhtar and Mukhtar Begum were considered the stalwarts of ghazal gayaki.
He also had a passion for Urdu poetry and began to experiment by singing ghazals on a part-time basis. He cites radio officers Z.A. Bukhari and Rafiq Anwar as additional influences in his progression as a ghazal singer.

  1. The power, majesty and diaspora in Mehdi Saab's voice made his music transcend languages and barriers across South Asia. When the most respected artiste of South Asia, Lata Ji, says God resides in his voice, the world of music in South Asia and Ghazals everywhere will never be the same after June 13, 2012. Heavens Bless you Mehdi Saab- Salaam and Namashkar from Bangladesh.
