  1. Dear friends of Sarangi and ICM !

    … its a great pleasure to see you coming back with this new website/wordpress blog. I missed during last months many times the access to sarangi.info.

    Actually I am searching for details about the Sarangi player Ustsad Hussain Baksh. So fare I know he belonged to Amritsar Gharana

    … and the traditoin of Ussain B. is carried on by his grandson Zohaib Hasssan Khan. Same I yet have not found any details about Zohaib H.

    Would thank you for giving me orientation. I am great lover of ICM.

      Ustad Hussain Baksh Amritsari was born at Amritsar in a family of sarangi players.
      He got his early training from his father Ustad Fateh Din and his uncle Ustad
      Sain Ditta.He started public performing at an early age.He became shagirid of Ustad Piran Ditta of Jhlandar. He was inspired by Ustad Shakoor Khan. After partition, the family migrated to Lahore.He was an integral part of all sarangi performances at Lahore.All the well known vocalists were his personal friends and he accompanied all of them. He had well known shagrids like Ustad Pheero Khan, Ustad Abdul Hameed, Nisar Hussain, Murad Ali, Hazara Singh and others. His tradidition is now being carried forward by his grandson–Zohaib Hassan Khan.

  7. It is this bejeweled foundation upon which Sikh gurus composed hymns for liberation of soul and creation of love filled souls.That is why Guru sahibs gave top priority to keertan singing/listening.May God give peace to all raga singers may be vocalists or instrumentalists who by their very very hard work kept the traditions alive.I have used ragas in my web site so that people may relish heavenly fruits.
