Rashid Khan : Five Gems

Rashid Khan had truly arrived on the classical music scene when Pandit Bhimsen Joshi heard him at a concert in early 1988. “There is now at least one person in sight who is an assurance for the future of Indian vocal music”, said Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, voicing the concern of connoisseurs of Hindustani vocal music about whether its tradition of excellence would continue.

Rashid Khan, blessed with a deep rich and powerful voice is often hailed as the greatest vocalist alive. His uncanny ability to capture the essence of a raga is unmatched. His taans are so virtuous that one must hear them to believe them.
