About Javid Raza :
Javid hails from a very elite family of Hyderabad, India.His father, Mr. Hashmath Raza was the Chief/State Architect of Andhra Pradesh, India. His father’s uncle was the Governor of Maharashtra
Javid had a devout inclination to singing/music from childhood. His inborn talent for singing is a God’s Gift. He was given the title of a “child prodigy” by his Gurus in music. He received formal training in music by Ustad Tasadduq Hussain Sahab. His favorite raagas are “Raag Yemen” and “Raag Darbari”. A few of his favorite numbers are “Zindagi Bhar Nahi Bhoolegi Wo Barsaat Ki Raat” (Raag Yemen) and “O Duniya Ke Rakhwale” (Raag Darbari). His Ustaad always recommended him to join the Hindustani College of Music for theoretical training in music, but his parents wanted him to become a doctor as he excelled in academics especially Science. His schooling was done from the prestigious Hyderabad Public School formerly known as the “Jagirdar College”.
During his college years, he worked part time at AIR – All India Radio
for almost a year, where he met famous maestros, musicians, singers and other artists from all over India.
He was offered a job of a version singer by a head hunter to work with the musical maestros Laxmikant-Pyarelal Ji
. He declined that offer as he was in his final year of his Masters degree. Later, he moved to Dubai
. And then came an offer from the famous Music Director, Ravi Sahab
in his talent hunt for a new voice. Unfortunately, Javid was unable to take this opportunity due to his newly acquired job restrictions.
Javid was always an ardent fan of the “Great Legend – Rafi Sahab”.
Now, Javid resides in Darien, Connecticut, U.S.A.. He works for a reputable European Airline and has a full time job. He performs on the week ends. He juggles his time between work and music, which is his all time most revered hobby.
Music has always been a solace for him. He has traveled all over U.S.A., Canada, Europe, Panama, Caribbean Islands, South America, Middle East, Pakistan and India and given numerous shows with famous Bollywood
and Pakistani artists. He has been bestowed with several trophies and awards as the “Voice of Mohammed Rafi”. But Javid is a very down to earth person who feels that “QUDRAT KO SIRF AIK HI RAFI
DARKAAR HAI’ and nobody can equal legends like Rafi Sahab.
Like all professionals need to learn constantly to update themselves, Javid strongly believes in ongoing learning in the field of music He says, “Bin Guru Gyaan Kahan Se Paoon, Dee Jo Daan, Hari Gunn Gaoon”. He has a natural talent of writing poetry, which he probably inherited from his uncle who is a renowned Shaayar “Akbar Hyderabadi” currently residing in London.
Javid has three CDs to his credit. The first one is titled “TADAP”, the second one is “IBTEDA” and the third one is “Memorable Songs of Rafi”. He gave playback for the movie “Bandhak”, which was produced in USA. He sang a religious couplet/Ashlok for a Television Documentary, “Diya Jyothi” He sang for a TV serial “Mausam”, which was telecast on “Zee TV
These are his redeeming qualities – humble, modest, soft spoken, polite and extremely kind hearted, which coincidentally are identical to his role model, Rafi Sahab. He is very content with what God has bestowed him with.
