Description of "Dr (Baba) Allauddin Khan (1881–1972)"

The essential research and findings of this book lie in an analysis of currently available documentation—in the form of biographies, books, journals, newspaper articles, essays, manuscripts, letters, interviews and websites—on the life of the late North Indian (Hindustani) classical musician, composer, innovator and teacher, Dr (Baba) Allauddin Khan.
The author's intention:
– To compile a substantial report on the origins and formative life experiences of Dr Khan
– To confirm his uniqueness as a musical genius
– To demonstrate his pre-eminent position as the major influence in changing traditional concepts and other important elements of Hindustani classical music
– To proclaim and substantiate that his true musical legacy (music as a form of worship) is not afforded appropriate recognition and has been diluted by musicians and scholars alike.
