A tribute to the late ghazal legend Mehdi Hassan, a timeless inspiration to ghazal singers throughout the world for generations to come.


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.
