Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan (1902-1968) was an Indian classical singer par excellence who was considered an important representative of the Hindustani music tradition in the early and mid 20th century. He belonged to the Patiala Gharana of Hindustani classical music which was famous for its ghazal, thumri and khayal. This Gharana was exemplified by Bade Ghulam Ali Khan’s quick ascent through the octave in his rendering of Darbari. His voice had a wide range. Spanning three octaves, effortless production, sweetness, flexibility and ease of movement in all tempos. He was awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and the Padma Bhushan in 1962.
