With Allaudhin Khan two great sitar maestros, Nikhil Banerje and Ravi Shankar (04/07/1920 – 12/11/2012) had the same teacher… we like to remember Pandit Nikhil Banerjee (10/14/1931 – 01/27/1986) today on 27th January who was one of the greatest Indian maestros of North Indian Classics the world ever has seen/heard.
Nikhil’s pureness and focussing onto the essentials of each raga is why so many music lovers around the globe are remembering and listening his uniquely music.
