The harbinger of female playback singing, Amirbai Karnataki was born in Bijapur, Karnataka. Younger sister of actress Gauharbai, she came to Mumbai immediately after completing her matriculation. It was here that a representative of HMV recording company heard her voice and signed her for recording a qawwali, which became a surprise hit. With the help of her sister, she also started a singing-acting career in films like “Vishnu Bhakti” (1934), “Yasmin” (1935) and “Narsi Bhagat” (1940). Her first hit song was “Ab Tere Siwa Kaun Mera” (“Kismet”, 1943), composed by Anil Biswas.
