The Wednesday Recital

Rashid H Khan

Rashid H Khan

The immensely gifted Ustad Rashid Khan, one of the leading torch bearers of Hindustani classical vocal music has been eulogized as the future of Indian vocal music. Even though the young Rashid initially showed little or no interest in music, his tutelage under his illustrious granduncle, Ustad Nissar Hussain Khan, changed the course of his life and made Rashid what he is today. Nurtured carefully first at his guru's residence and then at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy, the long and arduous training made Rashid Khan a perfect exponent of the Rampur Sahaswan gharana. Rashid is presented here in performance at a Wednesday recital in May 1989. Accompanying him on the tabla is Chandrabhan Srisundar and on the harmonium, Ajoy Chakrabarty.
