An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri




Vijay Malla inherited singing from his mother who possessed a very sweet and melodious voice. He used to sing old movie songs at age five. He won a number of prizes and always stood first in cultural programs sponsored by schools, colleges, All India Radio (A.I.R.) and TV Station (Doordarshan Kendra) at Srinagar, Kashmir, India. He learnt classical vocal music from Prem Sangeet Niketan, Kashmir at age 10.

Vijay Malla's talent was appreciated by Ustad Rahat Ali Khan who would teach him some ghazals on his visit to Kashmir. He also learnt classical vocal under the guidance of Pt. Brijkrishen Shair. His ghazal training was given to him by a famous Ghazal singer of Kashmir, Pt. Vishnupuran Dhar.

Vijay Malla started singing very frequently on Radio and Television - his songs became instant hits that are popular even after 25 years. He has performed in almost whole of India, as he has been honored by the academic institute of music and fine arts to be the playback singer of various musical operas in Hyderabad, Mysore, Madras, Bangalore, Trivandrum, Kanyakumari and Delhi.
