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.

The Magnificence Of Stereo is the 1978 album by the late shehnai master Ustad Bismillah Khan. The album features two ragas and two dhuns. "Raga Lalit" is for the morning while "Raga Multani" is an afternoon raga. "Dhun Taal Kaharwa" is described as "light classical" while "Dhun Ghazal" is "a melody in the lighter vein." While Khan is the only musician credited on here, he is joined by two types of Indian drums: tabla and duggi, plus two other shehnai's. This is ripped from vinyl.

World Music / Indian Music / Indian Classical / Indian Raga / Sitar & Sarangi Jugalbandi / Duet

Although Sitar and Sarangi are prominent Indian Classical instruments, they encountered very rarely in Jugalbandi/duet setup. So, this concert album is a rare and great treat for those who have an enthusiastic ears for Indian Classical music. Ustad Rais Khan & Ustad Sultan Khan are not only very esteemed musicians but are noted for an outstanding capability for Jugalbandi performances. In this Live in London concert accompanied by much soughtafter tabla player Pandit Anindo Chatterjee, It captured their great and detailed skills of musicianship which took them to new heights in their fields. The volume 1 is completely devoted to Raga Yaman Kalyan, an evening raga and performed in detailed Alap, Slow and Fast Teentaals. The second volume consists of Ragamala (A Garland Of Various Ragas) based around Raga Khamaj and the concert ends with bewitching Medium Tempo Teentaal in Raga Bhairavi. IMO, An outstanding and a rare Jugalbandi. Highly Recommended.

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.
