The Nooran Sisters - Jyoti Nooran and Sultana Nooran - are a Sufi singing duo from Sham Chaurasia gharana of classical music. They are from Jalandhar, India.[1]

Early life

The sisters were trained for 10 years by their father, Ustad Gulshan Mir, who is the son of Bibi Nooran/Swarn Noora, a renowned Sufi singer of the '70s. Music was an integral part of their childhood because of their grandmother, Swarn Noora. According to their father, the family fell on very hard times after Swarn Noora died. It was very difficult to obtain basic necessities, including food.[2] To survive, Mir began giving music lessons which helped his family through the difficult times.

When Sultana was seven and Jyoti were five Mir discovered their talent for singing and contacted Music Director Kuljit Singh. The first song recorded by them was 'Kulli' under his direction. They were playing, and in jest began singing a Bulleh Shah kalam they had heard from their grandmother, Bibi Nooran. They didn't miss any beat and sang professionally with tabla and harmonium. Iqbal Mahal, a Canadian music promoter, discovered the sisters in 2010. He plays a big role in their current success.[3] Then they performed at Baba Murad Shah Dargah, Nakodar, Punjab. Their Song "Allah Hoo" was an instant hit on YouTube. After that more of their songs like "Tera Rab Ton vee Vadh Ke Deedar" and "Mein Keenu Keenu Dassan" played an important role in boosting the duo's popularity.


They performed on the occasion of the 72nd birthday of late Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh at Harpal Tiwana Center of Performing Arts (HTCPA), where the sisters left Patiala, Punjab, India residents spellbound with their talent. They shot to fame with the MTV Talent hunt series in India MTV Sound Trippin, with their song "Tung Tung", and later, with MTV Unplugged series and Coke Studio.

They also performed in the Dhaka International Folk Fest in 2016 and 2017.
