Ghazal artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good ghazal bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top ghazal bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Ghazal groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all ghazal bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest ghazal bands of all time, since the most famous ghazal artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best ghazal music.

You can click on the ghazal band names to see more information about that particular notable ghazal group. If they're near the top of the best ghazal artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top ghazal bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the ghazal band names themselves.

These items, like Mohammed Rafi and Shreya Ghosal include images when available. Dowvote the items you don't like and upvote the ones you do. The order changes depending on votes. Thumbs down the items you don't think should be on this list. Not a fan of Jagjit Singh or Ghulam Ali? Them thumbs them down.

All important, significant and iconic names in ghazal music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new ghazal bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of ghazal, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into ghazal music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good ghazal bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent ghazal bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best ghazal bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest ghazal musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular ghazal bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
