Master Musicians : Bismillah Khan

This week for #MasterMusicians, we bring to you, the Shehnai Maestro, Ustad Bismilah Khan.

When he was born, his grandfather was so delighted that he uttered the words Bismillah and the rest, is history ! It is so heartening to know that Bismillah Khan's place of practice was the Vishwanath temple on the river Ganga under the watchful eyes of the Goddess Saraswati who he had considered his Guru.

Ustadji was famed to have had a humble persona and a rare sense of humor.
