Press Release from The Rafi Foundation on Mohd Rafi Sahab’s 89th Birth Anniversary

Baar Baar Yeh Din Aaye

The Rafi Foundation will celebrate the 89th Birth Anniversary of Singing Legend Mohammad Rafi with a Musical Show on Tuesday, Dec 24 at the Fine Art Auditorium, Chembur.

Life time awards to Anandjibhai of Kalayanji Anandji Musical Duo & to Udit Narayan along with an array of Mohammad Rafi ‘s evergreen numbers will be presented at the musical evening.

There will be over 15,000 musical sittings & events around the world by Rafi Sahab’s lovers during the week, said Binu Nair founder of the Rafi Foundation in Mumbai.

Every year innumerable People visit ……. the Rafi Mansion located at Bandra and to Mohammad Rafi’s burial place in Santacruz during the months of Dec & July to pay homage to one of the most popular singer of our times.

It’s thirty three years since Mohd Rafi, arguably India’s greatest and most Versatile playback singer left for his heavenly abode leaving behind thousands of sweet melodies – which made him a legend during his life time. Rafi died on July 31 when he was 55 years old and left a void which no singer after him has been able to fill.

According to research, Mohd Rafi could sing in 14 different styles . If he has sung about 160 songs for Yahoo Shammi Kapoor, he has also sang nearly the same number for comedian – Johny Walker.

Every music aficionado know the power of Mohammad Rafi ‘s rendition. His “Mein Zindagi ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya” was an inspiration for every “ zindadil “ young man faced with challenges in life & his ” Oh duniya ke Rakhwale” could even make the Gods weep.

Mohammad Rafi attained immense popularity and became a household name with the song “Suno Suno e duniya walo, Bapu ki ye amar Kahani” recorded during the week of Mahatma Gandhiji’s asassination.

The song dedicated to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru “Meri Awaz Suno” & “Kar Chale Hum Fida” from Haquekat remain popular numbers – repeatedly heard in live musicals.

The power of his voice & the pleasure his fans derive from his songs prompted a group of music lovers led by Binu Nair to form a group called the Rafi Foundation which is a broad platform for Mohammad Rafi lovers.

Following Rafi Sahebs footsteps of helping the needy and deprived, The Rafi Foundation donated wheel chairs to a charitable group in Mumbai for the Physically Challenged recently in Mumbai.
