Shahida Parveen

Shahida Parveen

Known for her skill on classical genre of music, Shahida Parveen made her mark by singing sufi poetry as well. Mainly trained by her late mother, Zahida Parveen — a noted singer in the 1950s and 60s in her own right — Shahida Parveen also got education in music from Patiala Gharana. She was a disciple of Akhtar Ali Khan, father of Amanat Ali Khan and Hamid Ali Khan.

“Shahida was one of those rare people who started singing after learning the skill,” – Farukh Bashir, PTV.

Education in music had refined her personality to a great extent, meaning thereby that she had absorbed music in its all manifestations and forms. She was one of those singers who did not need on-job-training like many of her contemporaries.

She was also the disciple of well-known classical singer of the sub-continent, Ustad Chhotey Ghulam Ali Khan.
