In Fond Rememberance: Mohammad Rafi

Two Mohammads

Two Mohammads

Thirty five years ago today one of the greatest and most loved voices in the world of singing was taken from us.  Mohammad Rafi will always be valued as a singer and human being of sublime qualities.

Type  ‘remembering Mohammad Rafi’ into Google and you’ll find a large number of recollections of India’s greatest playback singer.    Here on this link you’ll find the album pictured below. It is a memorial issue released soon after his passing in 1980. And in the typically earnest and reverential tone employed by ‘Actors with Gravitas’ you will be treated to a spoken biography of his life (in chaste Urdu) interspersed with some of Rafi’s Greatest Hits.

Enjoy!
