        Biography

        Begum Akhtar came from Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh and studied with "eminent maestros like Ustads Vaheed Khan and Ata Khan of Patiala" according to the skimpy sleeve notes of a 1969 LP for EMI India. She was one of the finest and most spellbinding exponents of ghazal, but extremely under-represented in available recordings. ~ Ken Hunt
