Acclaimed musician and sarod maestro, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, writes an intense personal book on the lives and times of some of the greatest icons of Indian classical music.
He, who knows many stalwarts personally, needs to recall anecdotes and details about their individual musical styles, bringing them lively for the readers. It is a rare writing as nobody could pen o n these wonderful artists’ life and moments better than Ali Khan.
Twelve eminent musicians of the twentieth century are chronicled in the book like Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Amir Khan, Begum Akhtar, Alla Rakha, Kesarbai Kerkar, Kumar Gandharva, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Bhimsen Joshi, Bismillah Khan, Ravi Shankar, Vilayat Khan and Kishan Maharaj.
Amjad Ali Khan presents portraits of these great artists drawn with affection, humour and warmth.
