Re: The Pancham-Rafi Effect 3172007

LOL...Objection sustained.

At least SDB was related by blood :)

I am waiting and hoping this thread becomes a full-blown discussion 
on Pancham-Rafi partnership. If this gets into discussing Rafi and 
his fantastic partnership with Naushad and SJ - Loin will growl.

Anyways...here's my attempt towards steering this thread towards 
Pancham:

In my experience with Pancham's works and use of Rafi, KK, Lata and 
Asha - I almost feel that Rafi and Lata were treated at par by 
Pancham - with respect - for specific songs.

When it came to KK and Asha - Pancham was more experimental in using 
their talents to different situations, genres and actors.

In the earlier days, we find Pancham attempting to make Rafi and Lata 
sing the same style numbers as he composed with KK and Asha. For 
instance there is Teesri Manzil, Pyar Ka Mausam, Waris, Abhilasha, 
Ehsan, Puraskar, Raaton Ka Raaja, Caravan, Dil Ka Raaja, etc.

Then post 1974 we find Rafi and Lata singing more of the similar type 
for songs - not much variations, the romantic numbers, the soulful 
background numbers, the bhajans or songs picturised on actors more 
suited for their voice.

There are certain exceptions - for instance the album SHAAN is a 
total turnaround - Rafi all over...from 'Naam Abdul' to 'Yamma

Rules and Guidelines for the Pancham Group
==========================================

Please take some time to go through these tips, guidelines, and rules that we go by on our group. Many of them
are universal in nature and apply to most Internet forums. Internalize them now and you will thank us
later. 

1. The group is meant to discuss Pancham and his music. If you want to post or discuss something that is not
focussed on Pancham, find a relevant group. Or, you can use our sister yahoogroup 'Panchamfans'.  

2. Currently the group permits postings in either English or Hindi languages in either Roman or Devanagari
(Unicode) scripts. If you want to post material in any other language, please provide a Hindi or English
translation or summary of the text.

3. The most important rule of netiquette is "Think before you post". If what you intend to post will not make a
positive contribution to the group and be of interest to several readers, don't post it! Personal
messages to one or two individuals should not be posted to the group, use private e-mail instead. 

4. Read the group postings for a while before you post anything. This helps you to get an understanding of the
culture of the group. 

5. Don't post test messages - wait until you have something to say. 

6. Be careful with humor and sarcasm. Without the voice inflections and body language of personal
communications, it is easy for a remark meant to be funny to be misinterpreted. Subtle humor tends to get
lost, so take steps to make sure that people realize you are trying to be funny. When posting humorous or
sarcastic comments, it is conventional to append a smiley, but don't overuse them.

7. When following up an article, quote the *minimum* necessary to give some context to your reply and be

Aap logo ko yaad hoga ki kareeb 6 mahine pehle maine aap logo ko Pancham da se sambandhit kuchh ghatnye batai

aap logo ko kuchh aur batein batana chata houn.
1. Sub se pehle to main sub se badi baat aap logo ko batana chhounga. Pancham da ka janamdin 27 june ko tha aur
din wednesday ka tha. Dekhiye kya ittefaq ki baat hain ki apne bete rahul ka janamdin bhi wednesday(25
July) ko tha. Apne bete ka janamdin Pancham da ke 28 din baad aata hain.Yani saal mein Pancham da ka janamdin
kisi bhi vaar ko aaye, usi din apne bete ka janamdin bhi aayega.waise yeh bhi ittefaq ki baat hain ki mera
janamdin bhi Pancham da ke janamdin se 84 din (12 weeks,4th April) pehle aata hain. Is ka matlab yeh hain ki
agar saal mein jis vaar ko mera janamdin aayega, usi din Pancham da ka aur apne bete ka bhi janamdin aayega.
Is ittefaq ko aap kya kehenge.
2. Maine SKSKM mein kuchh din pehle Gaulson Bawra ji ka programme suna. Unnohne bataya ki un ka janam 13 April
1938 mein hua. Aap sub to jante hi hain Gulson sahaab ne Pancham da ke sath kitna kaam kiya hain aur dono mein
kitni gehri dosti thi. Kya kismat ki baat hain ki 13 April ko meri bhi shadi hui.
3. Apne ek dost ki mother ka 27 Dec. 2006 ko dehant ho gaya. Mujhe yeh jaankar bada hi achharya hua ki kaise
Pancham da ke janamdin ke thik 6 mahine baad hi us ki maa ka nidhan hua. Halaki weh bhi Kishore da aur Pancham
da ka bahut bada fan hain.
4. Pancham da ko cooking ka bada souk tha . Dekhiye main bhi cooking line mein houn. Main pichhle 10 saal se is
line mein houn. Us samay mujhe pata nahin tha ki Pancham da ko cooking ka souk bhi tha.
Is ke alawa, main Manohari da se phone par baat karne ki 2 ghatnao ki baat karoonga. Maine pehli baar 29 dec
2006 ko dada ko phone kiya. Us samay weh Calcutta jane ki tayari kar rahe the. Maine unneh phone kiya to

Re: Re: The Pancham-Rafi Effect 3172007 - 2 Lata-Rafi duets

Shashi and all,

What do you think about these two songs: -

1. Mohabbat Me Aji Kya (Rafi-Lata): This song, stands as high as any other renowned non-pancham Rafi-Lata
gem. Those days Pancham did not try too much with orchestration, rather concentrated on only melody (like
Tum Meri Zindegi Me from Bombay to Goa), and see the result.
Somewhere there is SDB Gharaana inside this song, though RDB stamps can be found everywhere, look at the
flight of those words 'Chhodo sawaal yeh ab tum jawaab do, Apne bhi pyaar ka thoda hisaab do' then the shift
of mood in 'Pyar tum se karte hain, hum tum pe marte hain'
This is pristine romance man... kahan hai aise masoom lyrics... kahan hai aise tarz, aur kahan aisi aawaazen!

2. Nagma Humaara Gaayega: It is less rare than the previous one, thanks to Universal. Look at the treatment
in shehnayee and Veena (?) in the interludes!! The tune is very unique, with the short taan involved in the
mukhda, as till 'hum de chale ishk ko' no one can predict how the tune will go back to the first note of 'Naghma
Humaara'.. but look how Pancham handled the words 'ek aisa taraana' ! Sheere bliss... while coming back to
the mukhda from the second antara, Lataji has added a short taan, that is a master stroke... kya baat hai!

Add more guys. Need to get back to work now... the less interesting , but essential things of life
Cheers
Shyamu

OTH : [badhkebolbeta] Re: Did You Miss These Ones: Pancham's Paanch

You wont believe Guys.. while I wrote the mail 5 minutes back..
Suddenly a song has started just now on my World Space.... You wont
believe its "Dono ke Dil hain" (the one I mentioned in the post 5 mins
back).. Haven't heard the song for 4-5 years but suddenly just after
sending the mail it came on Radio... also the version they are playing
is a revelation for me..  its not the one Sung by Lata and Jagjeet but
another version by Lata and Suresh, which I have heard for the first
time.. Anybody has any idea on this version..

Re: The Pancham-Rafi Effect 3172007 - 2 Lata-Rafi duets

Two excellent duets Shyamu-bhai, "Mohabbat Mein Aji" is very 
romantic and sweet, the melody is fantastic and so is the 
orchestration with its light touch and fresh fragrance. Lata and 
Rafi are as usual very great in this song.

I have always found "Nagma Hamara" to be very soulful. A beautiful 
classical-based duet, Lata and Rafi take the song to a whole new 
level. The sarod and veena are just too good, and the interludes 
have been crafted nicely.

Coming to Pancham-Rafi, picking up from where Shashi-bhai left off, 
based on my experiences, their hit ratio was very high. They have 
many gems to their credit. Pancham and Rafi have songs in different 
genres; happy, sad/pathos, romantic, fun, classical-based, ghazal-
type melodies, western/pop, qawwali's, devotional numbers, 
philosophical gems. When many talk about this partnership, this 
point often gets overlooked. 

Pancham used Rafi consistently throughout his career. There is a 
phase (73-76) where I feel Pancham should have turned to Rafi more. 
You will find them coming together a lot before and after that 
phase, but in that time they seemed to have reduced their output a 
little. Ofcourse this doesn't take anything away from their 
partnership, which was awesome.

Some also tend to overlook this jugalbandi. The Pancham-KK team was 
excellent, they were made for eachother, and as Rafi was, as one of 
my friends put it, "consistently perfect" with the majority of MD's, 
Pancham wanted to be different and had his favourite in KK. However 
even with this, Rafi was also a regular with Pancham and his second-

Re: The Pancham-Rafi Effect 3172007 - 2 Lata-Rafi duets

I forgot to mention this, but in regards to that phase (73-76), even 
if Pancham-Rafi had reduced their output a little during that time, 
it ALSO doesn't take anything away from Pancham using Rafi 
consistently throughout his career.
