Aziz Mian Qawwal (Urdu: عزیز میاں قوال) (April 17, 1942 ? December 6, 2000) was one of Pakistans most famous Qawwals.
Aziz Mian is responsible for the longest commercially released qawwali, Hashr Ke Roz Yeh Poochhunga, which runs slightly over 115 minutes, and was originally released on two cassettes.
Aziz Mian was born as Abdul Aziz (Urdu: عبد العزیز) on April 17, 1942 in Delhi, British India. The exclamation, Mian (Urdu: میاں), which he often used in his Qawwalis, became part of his stage name. He began to introduce himself as Aziz Mian Mairthi. The word Mairthi refers to Mairath, a town in India, from which he migrated to Pakistan at the age of five in 1947.
At the age of ten, in 1952, he began studying the art of Qawwali under the tutelage of Ustad Abdul Waheed. He received sixteen years of training at the Data Ganj Baksh School of Lahore, Punjab. Aziz Mian obtained M.S. degrees in Arabic, Persian, Urdu literature, and History from the University of Punjab, Lahore
Aziz Mian was one of the more traditional Pakistani Qawwals. His voice was raspy and powerful, yet this was not the sole reason for his success. Aziz Mian was not only a master musician but was also the only prominent Qawwal to write his own lyrics (though, like others, he also performed songs written by other poets).
Aziz Mians first break-in performance was in 1966, when he performed before the Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi. He won 1st prize in Iran and a gold medal from the King of Persia.
In the early days of his career, he was nicknamed Fauji Qawwal (Urdu: فوجی قوال) (meaning Military Qawwal) because most of his early stage-performances were in military barracks for army personnel.
Aziz Mians Qawwalis emphasised on chorus and on the main point of the Qawwali through repetition; very little attention was paid to the musical part of the Qawwali. Aziz Mian had a talent for reciting poetry to the effect that it touched the audiences hearts. He brought passion to his live performances. One of the trademarks of his stage performances was his habit of getting carried away and rising to his knees (from the normal sitting position) while reciting poetry in the middle of a Qawwali, losing contact with the microphone in the process.
Although Aziz Mian mainly sang religious Qawwalis, he had some success in the romantic field. Some of Aziz Mians most famous Qawwalis are Main Sharabi Sharabi, also known as Teri Soorat, Allah Hi Jaane Kaun Bashar Hai, and Ya Nabi also known as Nabi Nabi Ya. For his service in philosophy and music, the Government of Pakistan awarded him the highest honour in such categories, the Pride of Performance, in 1989.
He was fond of discussing religious and Sufi paradoxes in his Qawwalis. He directly addressed Allah (God) and complained about the misery of man (the greatest creation of the Almighty). Most of the poetry in which Aziz Mian addressed Allah was written by Allama Iqbal. He also has performed poetry by a number of contemporary Urdu poets, including Sadiq and Qateel Shifai. Pakistani comedian Umar Sharif has said in one of his stand-up shows about Aziz Mian: Other people have disputes on earth, his disputes are in heaven. He altercates with Allah.
