Bismillah Khan is an outstanding and popular contemporary shehnai player. He has attained astonishing mastery over the instrument. He was born into a family of shehnai players and it was natural that he would train in the art of playing shenai.
He was born in a small village called Dumraon in the Shahbad district of Bihar, on November 21, 1916. His early childhood was spent in Varanasi, on the banks of the Ganga, where his uncle was the official shehnai player in the famous Vishwanath temple. His elder brother was also a renowned shehnai player. His father, Paigamber Bax, was a musician for the Dumraon State.

Ustad Vilayat Khan is IMO, the greatest Indian sitar player evolved in 20th Century. He not only conquered the sitar world, but experimented in wide range of ragas that any artist simply don't even dare to meet those high standards. Vilayat Khan has extensively recorded the Indian Classical Music all through his career that spanned nearly 7 decades. So, It's very challenging thing to summarize his career in a box set. However, for this 3 CD box, Saregama label pulled Vilayat Khan's some of very important music recorded between 1955 to 1990. IMO, A Holy Grail for the Indian Classical fans. Enjoy.

Raga Marwa/Raga Bhairavi is a 1995 CD by Ustad Sultan Khan. The CD is simply listed under his instrument, Sarangi, but since he released a few other discs on the India Archive Series label with the same name, I am using the name of the two ragas featured. "Raga Marwa" is divided into four indexed tracks while "Raga Bhairavi" is heard as one track. Khan is joiend by Anuradha Pal on tabla and Mrs. Paro Shah on tanpura.
