Akhtari Bai Faizabadi, also known as Begum
Akhtar (7 October 1914 – 30 October 1974), was a well known Indian singer of
Ghazal, Dadra, and Thumri genres of Hindustani classical music. She received
the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for vocal music, and was awarded Padma Shri
and later, Padma Bhushan, posthumously by Govt. of India. She was given
the title of Mallika-e-Ghazal (Queen of Ghazals) Her father, Asghar Hussain,
was a young lawyer who fell in love with her mother Mushtari and
made her his second wife. He subsequently disowned her and his
twin daughters Zohra and Bibbi (Akhtar) Akhtar was barely seven when she was
captivated by the music of Chandra Bai, an artist attached to a touring
theatre group. However at her uncle's insistence she was sent to train under
Ustad Imdad Khan, the great sarangi exponent from Patna, and later under Ata
Mohammed Khan of Patiala. Later, she travelled to Calcutta with her mother
and learnt music from classical stalwarts like Mohammad Khan,
Abdul Waheed Khan of Lahore, and finally she became the disciple
of Ustad Jhande Khan. Her first public performance was at the age of fifteen.
The famous poet Sarojini Naidu appreciated her singing during a concert which
was organised in the aid of victims of the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. This
encouraged her to continue singing ghazals with more enthusiasm. She cut her
first disc for the Megaphone Record Company, at that time. A number of
gramophone records were released carrying her ghazals, dadras, thumris, etc.
She was amongst the early female singers to give public concert, and break
away from singing in mehfils or private gatherings, and in time came to be
known as Mallika-e-Ghazal (Queen of Ghazal).
