I'm surprised that none here have noted the passing of one of Indian classical music's masters; sarod player Ustad Ali Akbar Khan died last weekend.

I first heard Khan-sahib play in about 1967; his music transported me, and sent me searching for more of this fantastic music... which turned out to be a lifelong quest.

This is very sad and upsetting news to me. I had planned to try to go to take some lessons at the Ali Akbar Khan College of Music sometime next year, and had hoped to meet Khansahib there. Sadly, I never saw him perform.

Along with Pandit Ravi Shankar, and the late Vilayat Khan and Pt. Nikhil Banerjee, a Ali Akbar Khansahib was one of the most important Hindustani Classical musicians of the last half of the Twentieth century.

He was responsible for several musical and technical innovations.

The man ubiquitous with the Sarod instrument! Sad to hear of his passing. May his sons add more glory to his name!

Buddhadev Das Gupta and Amjad Ali Khan might dispute the 'ubiquitous' description, but I wouldn't.
