The film captures the magic of Ustad Bismillah Khan’s music: the shenai, Bismillah Khan the man himself and his hometown, Benaras.
A sharp, well-researched documentary that takes us on a philosophical journey into the magical world of shehnai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan. With a keen sense of empathy, Goutam Ghose creates an essential account of an iconic musician and the timeless legacy of Hindustani classical music.
