About the author

Aban E. Mistry

Dr. Aban E. Mistry, a Zoroastrian lady by birth, mastered the art of music through sheer dint of dedicated zeal and devotion, which gradually evolved through her juvenile years. The seed began sprouting when she was initiated in the field at the tender age of four years. She received her initial training in vocal music from her maternal aunt, kum. Her skill in the knowledge of musical science was further honed by Bombay’s renowned scholar Pandit Jaisukhlal Shah.
