Group Description

Conquering Woman

"SHE came. She sang. She conquered. But Sufi singer ZILA KHAN remains true to her heart, despite the accolades showered on her. For Khan, sincerity is the keyword to success as is hard and rigorous practice. "I do riyaz for at least 10 hours a day," said Khan, adding that it is essential for any musician not to loose contact with the true self. "Sufi music" said Khan, "is all about understanding another point of view.""

"At the age of 21 Engelhard was enrolled at Vassar College , but found the atmosphere stifling. "Maybe I'm foolish - maybe I'll be disappointed or disillusioned - but rather that than this horrible passivity~ this demoralizing stagnation," she wrote. With that Engelhard transferred to Columbia University to study art which while stimulating, did not provide the rush she was looking for. She began to study photography as well as watercolour painting, and took horse riding lessons as well, proving herself to be an apt student in all fields. Yet it was not until a trip to Mount Rainier Park in Washington in 1926 that she truly found her calling."
