Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan
is an Indian classical musician in the Hindustani classical music tradition.
He belongs to the Rampur-Sahaswan Gharana and he is the son of Waris Hussain
Khan and grandson of Inayat Hussain Khan of Sahaswan Gharana. Ghulam Mustafa Khan was born on 3 March 1931 in Badayun, Uttar Pradesh. His mother was the daughter of the great Ustad Inayat Hussain Khan and music was the legacy of his family. Inayat Hussain Khan was also the court musician during the reign of king Wajid Ali Shah and also the son-in-law of the pioneer of Gwalior Gharana Haddu Khan. Since both Ghulam Mustafa Khan's parents wanted him to be a singer, his training in music started very young at a time when he could remember the tune but could not understand the words. After his father, he was trained by Ustaad Fida Hussain Khan who was the court singer at the Baroda's royal durbar, and then from Nissar Hussain Khan. The traditional styles of Rampur, Gwalior and Sahaswan gharanas are therefore part of his performance. At the time, every city had a Victoria Garden and it was the custom that on Janmashtami, the first public performance of those interested in music be performed as a debut. Ali Maqsood, the Chairman of the Municipality, organised the Janmashtami function every year and asked Ghulam Mustafa Khan to perform when he was 8 years old. Ghulam Mustafa Khan’s brother, Hafeez Ahmed Khan became a producer for All India Radio.
