Ustad Asad Ali Khan Sahib

Thanks to Gentry The Butcherer for this link

Asad Ali Khan on rudra veena (the detuned brother of the sitar with some giant gourds).
One of the world's great musicians and I would say even a musicologist in his own right. This was a memorable concert he played at Kamani Auditorium in 1998. He was very kind to allow me to record this beautiful rendition.
A pity that there is not much material about him on the web, I am sharing this clip so people can see what is class, and the level of aesthetic excellence achieved by our cultural exponents.
Savour this one too...
