About Kiran Ahluwalia
It took many years for Kiran Ahluwalia to find one of the last living masters of ghazal, a form of sung poetry that dates back to 14th century India. When she met Vithal Rao, her teacher and the last living court musician of the king of Hyderabad, she was exposed to a bygone era, a time before Indian independence when princes and kings employed court musicians to put music to ghazal poetry. In a twist of fate, Kiran is now a bridge to this colorful past and has emerged as one of the most preeminent composers of contemporary ghazals. Read more about Kiran Ahluwalia on Last.fm.
