Farida Khanum

Farida Khanum is a celebrated ghazal queen of Pakistan. After Begum Akhtar, Farida Khanum’s voice has the most character in the genre. She has undoubtedly created a landmark in ghazal singing.

Farida Khanum was born in Calcutta and grew up in Amritsar. As a child she was trained in classical and light classical music by her sister Muqtar Begum. Afterwards, she received training from Ashiq Ali Khan, a reputed maestro of Patiala gharana.

She migrated to Pakistan in 1947. In 1950, she appeared in her first public concert where she shared the stage with stalwart singers like Zeenat Begum and Iqbal Begum.

Farida Khanum was remarkably influenced by Begum Akhtar, Barkat Ali Khan and Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. This does not go unnoticed in her gayaki by her discerning audiences.

She has created niche for herself in ghazal and thumri gayaki. A tinge of huskiness in her voice, though heavy at times is like a feather that tickles. Her ghazals, in pure form of ragas with an aesthetic appeal and layakari, with total control over breath have always regaled the audiences. Her excellent selection of lyrics for Tabassum and Shakeel adds a lot to her renditions. Unforgettable songs like Aaj Jane Ki Zid Na Karo, and Who Mujhse Huey Hum Qalam are engraved in the minds of the connoisseurs.

Renowned as the most popular woman ghazal singer of Pakistan, Farida Khanum has performed across the globe.

Farida Khanum has a distinctive style of singing. It is an attractive blend of ghazal gayaki and tarannum (recitation), reflecting her training in classical music.

With her combination of glamour and professional excellence, she has been the life and soul of cultural evenings, and a delight for the media ever since she gained prominence.

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
Best web site to shop on line.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
