Najma Akhtar born in the UK, also known as Najma, is an English singer of South Asian ancestry. She was born in Chelmsford, England.

Najma has been recognised by her work as a pioneer in using subtle jazz arrangements with the traditional indian vocal ghazal style. Following her unique and distinctive sound, Najma has inspired a new generation of musicians and composers to move into the fusion genre. Along with her fusion of subtle jazz nuances, Najma also performs Indian semi-classical, folk, sufi, bollywood, indian underground, trance, along with the odd English song.

She has also appeared as a performer on stage and in songs and videos of other international famous singers/songwriters, such as the MTV "No Quarter/Unledded" performance with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page on the Led Zeppelin classic Battle of Evermore, jazz vocalist Nina Simone, recording with Basement Jax, guitarist Andy Summers (Police), Jah Wobble, and jazz and rock saxophonist Stan Harrison.

Sorry I have only got this one cassette of her ghazals, bought long time ago before the days of CDs. There are some of her new numbers on youtube but I find that she has gone more towards fusion music and away from ghazals in some of them

more jazzy than ghazaly. biggrin.gif
