About The Artist

The highest watermark of Ustad Mehdi Hassan’s achievements is to have mastered both ghazal and classical music and then fuse them in such a way as to bring this complex amalgam within the easy reach of all. Mehdi Hassan’s chief characteristic, and also his uniqueness, lies in his command over all of the highly technical ragas and skilful employment of sur (melody): this adds –a new dimension to ghazal singing, hitherto almost impossible to achieve. But then, one has to acknowledge the contribution his rich and melodious voice has made to achieve this level of supremacy.

Although these compositions are indebted to a classical base, Mehdi Hassan lays more accelerating and conscious emphasis on works, for he never seems to forget that it is the ghazal itself that has to keep the pace with Ragas. It is this pioneering and also perfect accouterment of sound and sense that carry even the most disinterested listener to a height where sheer ecstasy reigns supreme.

Ustad Mehdi Hassan is Pakistan’s supreme specialist in the art of Ghazals –words and thoughts woven into poetry and music. An outstanding vocalist Mehdi Hassan has captured the imagination of listeners worldwide. He was born in Luna in Rajasthan and was tutored by his father Ustad Azim Khan who was at the Court of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Mehdi Hassan was taught in the various styles of vocal music including Dhrupad, Khayal, Thumri and Dadra from the age of eight. In 1952 he sang classical music on Radio Karachi and in 1955 he launched himself in to the musical rendition of ghazal, an art which has become his main forte. His chief characteristic is his relaxed and assured style of presenting each of his ghazal. He has tremendous command over all of the highly technical ragas and skillful employment of melody. He selects each raga according to the mood of a ghazal.
