  • Dear Colonel Sharma,

    Delighted to read your comment and request. I have looked through all my collection of material on Khansaheb but i found no reference to his life in Meerut. There is plenty of material about his prolific career in Miraj. However, I am going to approach two academic authorities in Indian Classical Music, Dr. Prabha Atre and Dr Ranade to see if they can help you out. As soon as I contact them I will have you communicate with them directly as they would be the best reference source. Will be glad to help out Ar.Aalam's production in any I can.

  3. 3. <ul><li>KIRANA GHARANA </li></ul><ul><li>This is the most prolific of the Hindustani Khayal Gharana. The origin of Kirana </li></ul><ul><li>Gharana is controversial. Ustad Abdul Karim Khan (1872 – 1937) is believed to be </li></ul><ul><li>the founder of this Gharana. He was born in Kirana near Kurukshetra and he </li></ul><ul><li>served as a musician at the Baroda and the Mysore Courts. His style of singing </li></ul><ul><li>had a tremendous influence on the music of western India. The emphasis on </li></ul><ul><li>elongating the notes and the importance to their melody and resonance is a </li></ul><ul><li>distinctive feature of this Gharana. The Kirana style of singing has emphasis on </li></ul><ul><li>aalap rather than on bandish as seen in the Gwalior Gharana. The mode of singing </li></ul><ul><li>is sentimental, graceful and full of emotion. Abdul Karim Khan's most important </li></ul><ul><li>disciple was Pt Sawai Gandharva, who made this style of singing famous in </li></ul><ul><li>Karnatak and Maharashtra. There are several fine exponents of this Gharana today, </li></ul><ul><li>including Pt Bhimsen Joshi, Gangubai Hangal, Kishori Amonkar and Prabha Atre. </li></ul>
