Roshanara BegumRoshan Ara was the daughter of Chanda Begum who was trained in the Kinara tradition by Abdul Haque, brother of Abdul Karim Khan.

Roshan Ara learnt from her mother and, after becoming an expert vocalist, went with her mother to Bombay to request Abdul Khan to give her advanced training. He only taught her between 1935  and 1936 but that short time was sufficient to polish her singing and to make of her one of the formost vocalist of the country.
Her sapat tans are the clearest and fastest of all present day vocalists and she was a truly God-gifted artist.
Unfortunately for Indian music lovers, she settled in Pakistan after her mariage.
