The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Other Female Singers and Lata Mangeshkar [2]

Zeenat Begum

Zeenat Begum belonged to what can be loosely termed as Lahore Club in the Hindi Films. She shifted to Bombay in 1944 and was active here till 1951, when she chose to Migrate to Pakistan. Her major active years thus pertain to the very last phase of the Vintage era. Therefore, even as she is considered quite an established playback singer in that period, bulk of her work remains not much heard to the-reared-in-the-golden-era person like me.

Even as I listed down Zeenat Begum’s solo songs for 1947 from HFGK, I was not sure that many of these songs may have a valid YT link. Surprisingly, not only almost all these songs did have a YT link, there are many YT links which do find a mention in HFGK to the credit of Zeenat Begum.

In the end, even as I had already planned her solo songs as part of the solo songs of ‘other; female sigers, her solo songs actually number befitting enough an indepnedant post.
