About the Artiste
<`p> Roshan Ara Begum was hailed as the greatest doyen of Kirana gharana in undivided India. Born in Calcutta in 1917 she moved to Lahore in 1948. However her tryst with Lahore began early in her teens when she visited the city often to participate in musical baithaks organized and held at the affluent residences of Chun Peer in Mohalla Peer Gillaanian at Mochi Gate. During these visits she also broadcast songs from the then All India Radio Station where her name was announced as Bombayali Roshan Ara Begum as she had shifted base to Bombay in the late 1930s to live near Ustad Abdul Karim Khan from whom she took lessons in Hindustani classical music for fifteen years.

By the 1940s her performances had already started creating a buzz as she regaled connoisseurs with her spellbinding renditions.

Her rich voice had a maturity about it that always left the listeners amazed and her vocal dexterity in rendering intricate taan patterns gained her immense respect among listeners and critics alike. She developed a unique style which was a perfect blend of her full throated voice and her training. Her renditions reflected her Ustad’s style be it the elaboration of a raga through alaap or the delivery of taan-s she peaked in her career between 1945 and 1982.

No wonder then that she was proclaimed the greatest exponent of Kirana gharana after the demise of her guru Ustad Abdul Karim Khan and Ustad Abdul Wahid Khan

Post partition Roshan Ara Begum Settled in Lalamusa in Pakistan from where she traveled for performances.

Even as far back as then she flirted with Bollywood and sang for composers as Anil Biswas, Feroze Nizami and Tassaduq Hussain lending her voice for movies such as Pahali Nazar (1945), Jugnu (1947), Qismat (1956), Roopmati Baazbahadur (1960) and Neela Parbat.

(1969) On December 6, 1982 this great legend passed away leaving the world of music reverberating with her voice which is etched in time.

This album is a celebration of the legendary Mallika-e-Mauseeqi Roshanara Begum who has been an outstanding phenomenon in the history of classical music and one of the greatest exponents of the Kirana gharana style of singing form Pakistan.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
