Farewell Ustad Bismillah Khan
Ustad Bismillah Khan, the great and revered shehnai player of India, and one of the most beloved sons of India, passed away yesterday at the age of 90. The sweet melodic strains of his shehnai form part of the consciousness of Indians. You will live on in our hearts and ears, and may you continue to make divine music wherever you are.
