I urge you to take 15 minutes to read this piece about a Pakistani classically-trained signer called Farida Khanum, ملکہ غزل (Queen of Ghazal).

Khanum is a legend in Pakistan. The piece covers her recent journey to Kolkata, the city where she was born. Partition forced her family to move to Pakistan when she was 6-years-old.
