Ustad Amir Khan is regarded to be one of the most influential Hindustani Classical vocalists of the 20th century. He was the founder of the Indore Gharana as well. A few prestigious awards he had won for his singing were Sangeet Natak in 1967 and Padma Bhushan in 1971.
Get a glimpse into Ustad Amir Khan’s life and the struggles that he overcame to become the musician you hear about today. His dedication was so much that he once said, “If I don’t sing in the morning or evening, I feel as if there is nothing worth living left in my life”. You can always put in time to music either by practicing on listening. Devotion towards music doesn’t interfere with life, if music is a part of your life.
