Nayyara Noor, who is frequently referred to as “Bulbul-e-Pakistan” (the Nightingale of Pakistan), was born in Guwahati, Assam in India,
where she spent her early years before moving with her family to Karachi, the capital of the newly formed Pakistan, a few years later.
She attended the esteemed National College of Arts in Lahore, where her vocal prowess was initially identified,
and by the late 1960s she had made her state television debut.
She had a varied career filled with memorable songs,
but she will be most known for her interpretations of poems by Pakistan’s celebrated revolutionary poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz,
which were included in the 1976 anthology Nayyara Sings Faiz.

Noor received numerous honors during the course of a four-decade career, including the Nigar Award for best playback singer for the movie Gharana in 1973.

She eventually retired from singing in 2012 and spent the rest of her life as a homemaker. She was married to actor Shehryar Zaidi and was the mother of Naad-e-Ali Zaidi and Jaffer Zaidi, both talented musicians and singers in their own right.

The announcement of her death resulted in an outpouring of grief among her fans, who shared their memories and clips of her iconic songs.
