Giving us a small lecture demo at my house
One of my favourite singers, Ustad Zafar Ali Khan died last night after a heart attack. A great voice and a wonderful teacher, he gave many young performers years of his experience and loved every minute of it. Among his many students were my daughter Ragni and her friend Zohra. Also, there was Sabina Ansari and Rubeena Kidwai.
I remember hearing him singing, years ago, with his father
- and his voice caught my ears. It was rich and wonderful. Much later, as I followed him singing and composing I saw him get better
by the minute.
Pity that we will not hear him sing again or see his laughing, singing face, his taunts, his humour. RIP, Zafar.
