ANDALEEB M. WASIF


インドはハイデラバードで1928年に生まれた独学の歌手にしてハルモニウム奏者、アンダリーブ・ワシフの復刻アルバム〜20世紀前半ウルドゥ語詩人の言葉を、ヴィーナ、タブラを伴ったハルモニウム弾き語りで聞かせる制作年不明のアルバム復刻LPです(60年代後半頃でしょうか?)。
結局、“ガザル” ですが、そこからハミ出すような歌のあり方も楽しめます。60年代ボリウッド側からプレイバック・ソングの要請もあったようですが、アンダリーブ・ワシフは受けなかったそうです。名家の出身ということで、きっと暮らしには困っていなかったんでしょうね。その意味でも、好きなことを好きなように演じたアルバムなのかも知れません。

Andaleeb Wasif was born in a well-known family of Hyderabad, India. A self-taught singer and harmonium player, he began performing as a youth – impressing The Nizam, His Exalted Highness (HEH) Mir Osman Ali Khan and continued developing his style through his young adulthood.
While studying architecture in Bombay (Mumbai) at Sir J.J. School of Arts, his natural talent of music and performances grew in acclaim and he won a number of prominent competitions including The Golden Voice of Bombay, The K.L. Saigal and The Lata Mangeshkar awards. He was recognized and honored by numerous film stars and singers of 1960s Bollywood along with film directors like Anil Biswas. Though he was sought after, he never pursued a career making music for the silver screen. Several famous voices of Bollywood were at one time students of Andaleeb, who was respected as a vocal teacher of ghazals.
Most of the ghazals Andaleeb is best known for, were written by poets such as Sahir Ludhyanwi, Akbar Hyderabadi, Faiz Ahmad Faiz, and Farig Bukahri all of whom he knew personally.
Andaleeb’s renditions are spiritual, mystical, enigmatic and filled with pathos, and are always timeless and ethereal.
