More About Abida Parveen

She is known as the ‘Soul of Sufi Music‘. No mention of Pakistani music can be complete without mention of the Queen of Sufi music herself. With a handful of albums, compilation appearances, and various world tours, Abida Parveen is regarded as the most successful Sufi female performer.

Born in Larkana Sindh in 1954, Abida Parveen grew into a house where her father, Ustad Ghulam Haider, decided to ignore convention and allowed her to study under him bravely. From the age of 3, she was singing, and attending her father’s school helped her hone her skills.

“Parveen is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, often referred to as ‘the Queen of Sufi mystic singing’. She is the only woman to reach this level of influence in devotional music,” states the publication.
