A child prodigy, Begum Parveen Sultana received her early training from her father, Ikramul Majid, then from Acharya Chinmoy Lahiri in Calcutta. She then moved to Bombay and came under the guidance of her Guru and Mentor, Ustad Mohammed Dilshad Khan. With him, she has acquired a new dimension to her singing, giving it the required mastery of ragas and voice culture. Many awards and honours have come her way: the youngest artist to receive the 'Padmashri', a coveted award from the Government of India. The press has been unanimous in proclaiming her the 'Queen of Hindustani Music', the 'Poetess of Music' and 'the Ultimate Soprano', applauding her for both her outstanding musicality and breathtaking virtuosity.
