Shahida Parveen who died in 13th March 2003 was not even fifty. Her mother Zahida Parveen too must have been in her late forties or early fifties when she died in 1975.

Zahida Parveen was very keen to see her daughter get the best music education and she made her the shagird of Ustad Akhtar Hussain Khan, the father of Ustads Amanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan. She was only being true to a tradition because she herself was the shagird of Ustad Ashiq Ali Khan and thus continued with the tutelage of the Patiala Gharana. After the death of Akhtar Hussain Khan, Shahida Parveen became the shagird of Ustad Chotay Ghulam Ali Khan who was from the Qawwal Bachon Ka Gharana.

If mother and daughter are both musicians the instant response is to draw a comparison between the two. And in this particular case both being vocalists, more or less following the same ang, the critical comparison can be a method of assessment and an identification of a slight difference in style. Zahida Parveen was initiated into music by Baba Taaj Kapoorthalawale saranginawaz and Hussain Buksh Khan saranginawaz from Amritsar before she became the shagird of Ustad Ashiq Ali Khan.

Zahida Parveen was from Amritsar and she rose to prominence early as she had acquired enough proficiency over a number of forms.
