Album Notes
Akhtar Shoukat was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. He graduated from Ansari High School, and then joined the Polytechnical University of Kabul. In 1987, he moved to India, and in 1990 he immigrated to Canada. He currently resides in the Toronto area. He started learning music with Professor Robeen Chaterji while he was in Kabul for 2 years, prior to moving to India to continue the study of Indian Classical Music. He completed the two-year Indian Classical Music Diploma Program within the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Delhi.

He is considered one of the best known ghazal singers from Afghanistan today. He is not only an accomplished ghazal singer, but an exceptional and seasoned composer as well. His unique compositional pieces featuring a fusion of Farsi ghazals with the aura of Indian classical ragas, has brought a new taste and style to the Farsi ghazal scene in Afghanistan.

Farid Muhtat

on Tribute to Mehdi Hassan
Tribute to Mehdi Hassan is one of the most indispensable Ghazal Albums for admirers of fine Ghazal music and it is dedicated to the Ghazal legend, late Ustad Mehdi Hassan. One can easily discern from this Album that the artist, Akhtar Shoukat’s singing style and vocal capability closely approximates that of the late Ustad Mehdi Hassan. The virtuoso rendition of these classic and rather complicated pieces of Ghazals in this Album is founded on Akhtar Shoukat’s profound knowledge of Indian Classical Music, his dedication to perfection and years of painstaking efforts.
Without doubt Akhtar Shoukat is one of the renowned contemporary artists in the style of late Ustad Mehdi Hassan. For any lover of late Ustad Mehdi Hassan’s music, this Album is a must and highly recommended. By listening to this Album, one can be only optimistic that the immortal spirit of a musical style established by a master can be worked upon and carried forward from generation to generation like the Olympic torch.
