Tohfa-e-shab-e-Sunday: Mehdi Hassan

Mehdi Hassan

Mehdi Hassan

The weekend is coming to a close.  The working week will be full once more and in all likelihood, I will not be able to pay much attention to this humble blog until next weekend.

 

As I type, I’m smiling with sublime pleasure to the Persian poem of Amir Khusrau, Mara Dosh Goyi. Mehdi Hassan is a treasure I’ve been slow to truly appreciate. Only in recent years have I begun to understand (and love) his artistry.  I wish had words to commend him to you who don’t yet know him (very few readers I’m sure).

 

So, as a special Sunday evening treat, I post the remaining 4 volumes of his Urdu film songs, which I hope you will prize as much as I do.
