Barkat Ali Khan
The Kasur-born Barkat Ali Khan (1910-63) was one of the greatest ghazal singers of his time. He possessed a rich and highly cultured voice which he employed with great delicacy to produce haunting melodies whose magic time has not been able to dim. His style was strongly influenced by the Patiala Gharana with its abundance of classical overtones and polyrhythmic nuances. He was equally adept at thumri, dadra and pahari Geet.
