Naseem Begum (1936–1971) was a popular and well known Pakistani playback singer. She rose to prominence towards the end of the fifties, and by 1964 had managed to win the prestigious Nigar award on five separate occasions. Despite originally being billed as a 'second Noor Jehan', Naseem quickly managed to carve out her own successful position in the music industry.
She had the caliber to sing semi classical compositions, which indeed is a difficult task.
