Biography

Parveen Sultana (b. 1950) is a Assamese Hindustani classical singer of the Patiala Gharana.

Begum Parween Sultana was influenced early on in Iife by her father late Janab Ihramul Majid, a popular musician trained under Gul Mohammed Khan and Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, and by her Grandfather Janab Mohammed Najeef Khan, a talented Rabab Player. She gave her first classical recital at the age of 12 at the Sadarang Music festival. Later she was under the guidance of renowned maestro Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri in Assam.

She owes her present remarkable style to the talim she has been getting from the internationally known vocalist of the Kirana Gharana, Ustad Dilshad Khan. Originally trained according to the Patiala Gharana, Ustadji’s guidance helped the real essence of other Gharanas flow into her music.

She is a very popular artist on T.V. and AIR and also has the credit and honour of having been invited to participate in many festivals abroad.

She has been awarded many titles including the Gandharva Kalanidhi, Mia Tansen Award, Sangeet Samragni Award and has been the yongest performing artist to receive the Presidential Award of “Padmashree”.

    she's got one of those divine voices. I got to see her in concert when I was little. I had very little idea of what I was listening to at the time, but even then I knew it was something out of this world. IMO, she hasn't had the fame or name she truly deserves.
