Greatest Ghazals - Live!
Program #CULT016. Recorded in New Delhi, India on December 08, 1973.
Begum Akhtar recorded at Aiwan-e-Ghalib in Delhi singing her heart and soul out in a 1973 concert less than a year before she died. Excellent tabla and sarangi accompaniment. Musicians are unknown alas. I have finally digitized the tapes that the Kashmiri poet Agha Shahid Ali (1949-2001) gave me years and years ago. He was totally devoted to her music and was always raving about this concert and that I had to listen to it. It was well worth the wait. In her inimitable style she sings ghazals, poems, by master Urdu poets such as Momin, Zauq, Ghalib, Dagh, Faiz, and Shakeel. A memorable performance by an unforgettable musician.Recorded at Aiwan-e-Ghalib by Kashmiri poet and Begum Akhtar afficianado Agha Shahid Ali.
