Mashkoor Ali Khan
Ustad Mashkoor Ali Khan comes from a distinguished musical line that includes some of the foremost figures in Indian Classical music. A direct descendant of the family of the great Ustad Abdul Karim Khan and the legendary Sartaj-e-Mousiqui Ustad Abdul Wahid Khan who were luminaries of the Kirana Gharana, Maskhoor Ali Khan is the son of the great Sarangi-nawaz, Padmashree Ustad Shakoor Khan.
Mashkoor Ali, as a true heir of his renowned forefathers and a scholar of music, is credited as having one of the richest collection of bandishes or melodies in the khayal genre of Indian classical music in the country. Initiated and trained by his father for fifteen years, young Mashkoor Ali had secured a place for himself in the world of music even before his father breathed his last breath.
