About the Artiste Ustad Bismillah Khan

The Shehnai is synonymous with the name Ustad Bismillah Khan. He was single handedly responsible for making the Shehnai a centre stage classical instrument. His ancestors were court musicians thus offering him a musical environment since childhood. Khansaheb had the rare honor of performing at Delhi’s Red fort on the eve of India’s independence in 1947. He also performed at the Red Fort on the eve of India’s first Republic Day ceremony on January 26, 1950. Khansaheb had a brief association with movies. The melodious sound of the Shehnai in the film Goonj Uthi Shehnai is highly memorable even after all these years. Bharat Ratna the highest civilian award was bestowed upon Khansaheb in 2001. Besides many others he has also been honored with the Sangeet Natak Academy and Padma Vibhushan.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
