Begum Akhtar The Queen of Ghazal (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Begum Akhtar The Queen of Ghazal (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Description
From The Jacket

Her voice had the seductiveness of mellow wine. When Begum Akhtar sang, she could make her audience sway to every emotion In the lyrics of a ghazal.

Once ghazals and thumris were the music of the court singers. It was Begum Akhtar's great artistry that took the music from the 'kothas' and gave it a place on the concert stage as a light classical music.

This is the captivating story of one of India's legendary musicians. Born in a family of court singers, she transformed herself from Akhtaribai Faizabadi to the revered Begum Akhtar. A singer who captured the heart of a nation by her grace and incomparable singing.

Charitavali is a series of biographies dedicated to the legendary figures of India. The series presents the lives of great kings, freedom fighters, political thinkers, social reformers, pioneers of industry, eminent scientists, philosophers, artists, musicians, dancers and film stars, writers and sports people.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
