Mostafa Anwar Swapan
Mostafa Anwar Swapan, músico, director musical, compositor, poeta, actor, homem de Teatro e cientista analítico, actualmente estudante da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, é originário do Bangladesh, onde nasceu a 02 de Dezembro de 1967. Através do seu esforço musical, tem procurado fazer da música uma viagem espiritual com vista à paz e harmonia, fazendo com que isso ultrapasse toda e qualquer fronteira. Desde muito jovem, através
inúmeros treinos, prtáticas e actuações em palco, tem feito uso da música em diversas línguas: urdu, persa, português, francês e bangla (a sua língua materna). Recentemente, e pela primeira vez na História da Música, tem estado a compor e a apresentar, com muito esforço e devoção, novas versões de música, quer em português, quer em francês. Viajando intensamente durante todo o ano, tendo como objectivos a Música e a Ciência e sempre
adoptando estilos e competências diferentes, tem procurado entreter audiências de todos os continentes através da beleza e profundidade da espiritualidade. Inspirado por tradições milenares com origem no clássico sistema indiano do Raga, tem composto uma variedade de músicas sufi (para além de outras), nomeadamente Kaawaali, Gazal, Thumri, Khayal, assim como músicas mais devocionais, patrióticas, para movimentos, e até mesmo folclore. É, neste momento, o primeiro músico a traduzir música de Kazi Nazrul Islam, o poeta nacional do Bangladesh, para português.

Qawali: Musicais de Spiritualidade
Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music popular in South Asia: in the Punjab and Sindh regions of Pakistan; in Hyderabad, Delhi and other parts of India, especially North India; as well as Dhaka, Chittagong, Sylhet and many parts of Bangladesh. It is part of a musical tradition that stretches back for more than 700 years. The poetry is implicitly understood to be spiritual in its meaning, even though the lyrics can sometimes sound wildly secular, or outright hedonistic. The central themes of Qawwali are love, devotion and longing for The Divine Love The Ultimate Reality.

Originally performed at Sufi shrines or dargahs throughout South Asia, it gained mainstream popularity and International audience in late 20th century. Qawwali music received international exposure through the work of the late Pakistani singers Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Sabri Brothers, and Aziz Mian largely due to several releases on the Real World label, followed by live appearances at WOMAD festivals. Other famous Qawwali singers are Avida Parveen, Amjad Farid Sabri, Fareed Ayyaz; Abu Muhammad, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Badar Maindad, Rizwan & Moazzam Duo, Bahauddin Qutbuddin.

Sufi saint Hazrat Amir Khusro Dehlavi (1253 – 1325) follower of Nizamuddin Chisti belong to the Chisti order of Sufis, during the great Mughal Era is credited with fusing the Persian, Arabic, Turkish, and Indian musical traditions in the late 13th century in India to create Qawwali as we know it today. The word Sama is often still used in Central Asia and Turkey to refer to forms very similar to Qawwali, and in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, the formal name used for a session of Qawwali is Mehfil-e-Sama. Qaul (Arabic: قَوْل) meaning an utterance or sayings is the origin of the word Qawwāl where someone main vocal artist and leader repeats (sings) a Qaul and other fellow vocal artists repeat and accompany him during the performance. Thus Qawwāli is what a Qawwāl sings.

The songs which constitute the Qawwali repertoire are primarily in Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi. There are some in Persian from the Mughal era and a smattering in Saraiki and dialects of north India like Brajbhasha and Awadhi. There is also qawwali in some regional languages but the regional language tradition is relatively obscure. Also, the sound of the regional language Qawwali can be totally different from that of mainstream Qawwali. In Bangladesh in the early 20th Century in 1930’s Kazi Nazrul Islam The National Poet of Bangladesh for the first time composed and recorded Qawwali in Bangla with relatively limited success. Later in the early dawn of this new millennium in 2001 Mostafa Anwar Swapan experimented some Qawwalis in Bangla with a some success keeping the style, form, structure, mood in line with the original tradition introduced by Sufi Saint Hazrat Amir Khusro Dehlavi and later further improved by Great Stalwarts like Sabri Brothers and Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Although Mostafa uses the modern forms of Bangla he uses huge words, phrases from Arabic, Persian, Urdu following his predecessor Kazi Nazrul Islam who remained to be his inspiration and vanguard in the history of music of Qawwali in Bangla.

Interestingly, from 2013 onwards Mostafa Anwar Swapan have been composing Qawwali in French language and then from 2104 in Portuguese language as such he marked the first ever effort of introduction of Qawwali as a new genre of music in the history of Portuguese/French or in European music. During this upcoming event to be hosted by Largo Residencia you may listen some of this new musical efforts in Portuguese language and may turn yourself to be the witness of a developing new musical history in this Iberia Peninsula. Along with his compositions Mostafa will also play some very famous and popular compositions from Hazrat Amir Khusro, Mawlana Jalauddin Rumi Persian Poet in middle age, Sabri Brothers, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Kazi Nazrul Islam.
