Abida Parveen - Biography

She is considered one of the most prominent contemporary exponents of the great ghazal and kafi musical styles from the Indian subcontinent. Rooted in the intense encounter between sensitivity and spirituality that is Sufism. She never ceases to sing her fiery love for the Divine. The earliest memories of her childhood are all linked to her passion for music and her desire to sing. Born in 1954 in Larkana, Sindh into a family tat maintains close associations with the shrines of Sufi saints. She was imparted her initial training in the art of music from her father, Ustad Ghulam Haider, and later from Ustad Salamat Ali Khan of Sham Chorasia gharana. Her father, whom she refers to as reverently as Baba Sain, was also a singer and had his own small music school where he taught only male pupils. He was devoted to the Sufi poets and that is from where Abida gets her devotional inspiration. For her the Sufi poets of Sindh and Punjab are the ones who speak of the inner truths of the self and in their poetry, where she finds solace and peace. As she was growing up, Abida attended her father’s music school and that was where her foundation in music was laid.

Hyderabad Radio first introduced her in 1977. She is today the most popular and well-known folk and ghazal singer of Pakistan who breathed a new life into ghazal and semi-classical music. She holds an audience of thousands spellbound. Her appearance is a complete reverse of many other stage performers. She begins each number as solemnly as the previous one as the evening progresses, sinking deeper and deeper into her kafi’s and Sufiana kalam of the mystic poets. She is a woman of very few words and asks to be judged only by her music. This folk phenomenon, called Abida Parveen, is deeply religious and profoundly humble.

Abida Parveen is the finest singer of ghazal, geet and sindhi, seraiki and punjabi kafees. “While khayal and thumri became a part of her childhood training, her effective rendering of folk and traditional music with great sophistication and without losing the basic characteristics of the regional music of sindh has made her a versatile singer.”

Her command of kafi of sufi poets such as Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, Hazrat Lal Shabaz Qalandar, Hazrat Sacchal Sarmast from sindh, and Hazrat Baba Bulhe Shah, Hazrat Khawja Farid Ganje Shakar, Hazrat Sultan Bahu, Hazrat Mian Muhammad Buksh, Hazrat Ghulam Farid, Hazrat Pir Mehr Ali Shah and Hazrat Shah Hussain from pujab embellishes her versatility. Apart from sufis of Pakistan, Parveen also sings mystic poetry of the Asian Indian subcontinent, which include sufis such as Hazra Amir Khusrau, Hazrat Nizamudin Auliya, Hazrat Kutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki, Hazrat Moinuddin Chishti and Hazrat Moulana Jalaluddin Roomi from Turkey.
Professor G.M. Mekhri of Sind University has rightly said that, “Abida Parveen is the spiritual daughter of Great Sufi Saint Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai. She is the truly blessed voice.” Abida has recorded all the poetry of Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, an 18th century poet and composer who blended folk music and classical raga in a style known as kafi from his book called “Shah jo Risalo” according to their respective “Raags” which were also laid down by him.

She has performed almost in all parts of the world and performed before international audiences and placed the name of the country high up I the field of music. Abida Parveen performed in Chicago in 1988. Her fist performance was based on classical and semi-classical art, the second was comprised of ghazals of prominent poets and the third rested on folk singing and different varieties of sindhi music. Her performance was recorded by the renowned organization Hazrat Amir Khusrau Society of Art and Culture, which issued a long play recording of her renderings. After that, she performed in July of 1989 for three hours in a Wembly conference in London and was recorded by the BBC for a one hour telecast.

Recently, Abida with her magical voice created a mystical environment in the Fez Festival held in Fez, Morocco in June, where she entranced an audience of 10,000. She performed at Royal Festival Hall in London on September 15, 2001 and captured the hearts of listeners.

Human Resources Manager - Funny!

One day while walking down the street a highly successful Human Resources Manager was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul arrived up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself. "Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've never once had a Human Resources Manager make it this far and we're not really sure what to do with you." "No problem, just let me in," said the woman. "Well, I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity in." "Actually, I think I've made up my mind, I prefer to stay in Heaven", said the woman "Sorry, we have rules..." And with that St. Peter put the executive in an elevator and it went down-down-down to hell. The doors opened and she found herself stepping out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club and standing in front of her were all her friends - fellow executives that she had worked with and they were well dressed in evening gowns and cheering for her. They ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times.. They played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner. She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy (kind of cute) and she had a great time telling jokes and dancing. She was having such a good time that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody shook her hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator. The elevator went up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly Gates and found St. Peter waiting for her. "Now it's time to spend a day in heaven," he said. So she spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She had great time and before she knew it her 24 hours were up and St. Peter came and got her. "So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven. Now you must choose your eternity, " The woman paused for a second and then replied, "Well, I never thought I'd say this, I mean, Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a better time in Hell." So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went down-down-down back to Hell. When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks. The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her. "I don't understand," stammered the woman, "yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we danced and had a great time. Now all there is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable." The Devil looked at her smiled and told..... . . . . .. . . . **. ** "Yesterday we were recruiting you, today you're an EMPLOYEE"*

Junaid may cut an album soon

Reds and whites dominated the screen this Friday on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. The theme was “Pyaar, Ishq aur Mohabat” and no one seemed to mind the fact that it was the elimination Friday. Last week’s controversial episode seemed to have taken a back seat, had Aditya not mentioned that last week’s votes would be added to this week’s total. This is something that has happened for the first time on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. Add to this: apna voting lights had disappeared. So no red, yellow, green lights any more. There was a big globe-of-fortune instead, that shuffled and finalised the performer who would remain in the team. Trust us, the lights may have changed, but the pain of losing a member always remains – especially since each of them is a talent ka nuclear bomb.

After Poonam and Mauli’s performance, when Amanat sang his bit and won a huge applaud from the judges, Ismailji commented “Baal ka boojh kuch kam hua toh achaa gayaa” (Now that you have cropped your hair and taken a big load off your head,you are singing well.) You should have seen the look on his face. Embarrassed red! Confession time: Our dear Aneek has a girl friend. He made an open confession about it but dare he slip her name. Initially when Himeshji asked him whether there was any chakkar in his life, he flatly refused. But later, he not only confessed it, but also wanted Himeshji’s blessings. Blessing he did get, not just from Himeshji, but also from Bappi Da, who sang a song for him.

The whole atmosphere was amazingly light when Raja stepped in. But when Vishal made a statement that in comparison to Aneek, Raja had now become the number 2, and that he needed to compete strongly against Aneek, Ismailji lost his cool. Vishal clarified that what he meant was the ongoing “better performer” battle that Aneek and Raja, very sportingly maintain. Ismailji, unmoved, said that “these two are not the only members in the team and the others are equally important. Kya gussa hai boss.

Poor Junaid! Since the last three weeks, he was down with a throat infection. But that did not show a bit in his performance. What a performer! As someone rightly said “the show must on” and we could not have found a better example in the episode. When it was declared that he was eliminated from the show, one could not help but remember how many applauds had Junaid won for his voice, right from veteran music composer Rakesh Roshan who said that “Junaid’s voice reminded him of Mohamed Rafi” to Sajid Khan who said “If your voice was on a CD, I’d sure buy that album.” Well fans need not be too disappointed for duo Vishal Shekhar have decided to cut an album with Junaid’s voice. Fans, be on the look out.

Joke of the day.

One day, a Chinese walked into a bar in America late one night and he sawSteven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushed over tohim, and asked for his autograph.

Instead, Spielberg gave him a slap and said, "You Chinese peoplebombed our Pearl Harbor, get outta here".

The astonished Chinese man replied, "It was not the Chinesewho bombed your Pearl Harbor, it was theJapanese"."Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you"re all the same," repliedSpielberg.

In return, the Chinese gave Spielberg a slap and said, "Yousank the Titanic, my forefathers were on that ship". Shocked, Spielberg replied, "It was the iceberg that sank the Ship, notme".

The Chinese replied, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you"reall the same".
