Ustad Allauddin Khan & Ustad Enayat Khan | Hindustani Classical | Raga Vairabi | Raga Behag



Ustad Allauddin Khan and Ustad Enayat Khan compiled under one Hindustani Classical album. It does not get bigger than this in Hindustani Classical or Indian Classical Music. This one is a special compilation of small pieces played by this two stalwarts in various ragas. Both the maestros have played six tracks each. The first six tracks are played by Ustad Enayat Khan.

Ustad Enayat Khan was one of India’s most influential sitar and surbahar players in the history of Hindustani Classical Music in the first decades of the 20th Century. He was the father of Vilayat Khan, one of the top most sitar players in the field of Indian Classical Music of the postwar period. Ustad Enayat Khan belonged to the Imdadkhani Gharana named after his father the legendary Sitar maestro Ustad Imdad Khan. It is also known as the Etawah gharana, after a small town close to Agra where Imdad Khan lived. Ustad Enayat Khan settled with his family in Calcutta, where, though he only lived to 43, he did much pioneering work on the sitar. For example, he standardized its physical dimensions and added the upper resonator gourd, which is very popular with today’s players. Ustad Enayat Khan Sahib brought sitar music out from its narrow connoisseur circles to new mass audiences. He was one of the major spearheads behind popularizing Indian Classical Music among the masses. The other six tracks compiled in this album are played by none other than the legendary Ustad Allauddin Khan Sahib very fondly remembered as Baba Allauddin Khan Saib. Baba Allauddin Khan was a Bengali sarod player and a multi- instrumentalist, composer and one of the most renowned music teachers of the 20th century in Indian classical music. He was the father of sarod maestro Ali Akbar Khan and Annapurna Devi, and the uncle of Raja Hossain Khan, as well as the guru of Ravi Shankar, Nikhil Banerjee, Vasant Rai, Pannalal Ghosh, Bahadur Khan, Sharan Rani, Jyotin Bhattacharya and other influential musicians. During his lifetime, he composed several ragas and laid the foundation of a modern Maihar gharana. He later became the court musician of Brijnath Singh Maharaja of Maihar Estate in Central Province. During his time as a court musician, Khan completely reshaped the Maihar gharana of Indian classical music. The Maihar gharana was established in the 19th Century, but Khan’s contribution was so fundamental that he is often thought to be its creator. These two maestros have laid down some of the very popular Gats of Hindustani Classical Ragas. Some Gats like Vairabi Gat and Behag Gat based on the Ragas Vairabi and Behag are extremely popular amidst the masses. Overall this is a rare classic and a connoisseur’s delight.
