About the Artiste

Ustad Ghulam Hassan Shagan Khan is probably the most outstanding living exponent of Khayal singing in Gwalior Gharana of Pakistan.

He was born in 1928 in Amritsar but later moved to Lahore. His grandfather was a legendary musician as was his father Ustad Bhai Lal Mohammad. His father wanted him to study but after the sudden death of his elder brother at the age of 22 Ustad Shagan had a big responsibility on his shoulders to carry forward the legacy.

Ustad Shagan’s first and so far the most memorable performance was in Calcutta in 1962 at a music conference where he performed in front of Pandit Omkarnath Thakur, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ustad Allah Rakha, Shankar Prasad and Aminuddin Dagar Kahn Sahib. He sang Darbari raga there and enthralled the audience with his outstanding performances. He has won many awards and gold medals from the Pakistani government including the pride of performance and the Graduates award by the organizers of the cultural association of Pakistan. He has traveled to many countries including Spain, France, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and the UK and has been received with overwhelming response.

Ustad Shagan has dedicated himself to music and trained his sons in classical music in an attempt to keep it alive with the coming generations.

This album is a celebration of the legendary Ustad Ghulam Hassan Shagan Khan who has been an outstanding phenomenon in the history of classical music and one of the greatest exponents of the Gwalior gharana style of singing form Pakistan.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
