Classical singer Ustad Bare Ghulam Ali remembered

ISLAMABAD, Apr 23 (APP):The legendary classical singer, Ustad Bare Ghulam Ali Khan was remembered on his 51st death anniversary today (Tuesday).

Bade Ghulam Ali Khan was born in Kasur, a small town near Lahore, Pakistan then Punjab province in British India.

Though he started his career by singing a few compositions of his late father Ali Baksh Khan and uncle Kale Khan, Bade Ghulam amalgamated the best of three traditions into his own Patiala-Kasur style: the Behram Khani elements of Dhrupad, the gyrations of Jaipur, and the behlavas (embellishments) of Gwalior.

He died at Basheerbagh Palace in Hyderabad on 23 April 1968 after a prolonged illness which left him partially paralyzed in the last few years of his life.
