Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan - Sitar II

Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer ragas Abhogi and Chakradhun

Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan regarded as one of the 'Sitar Trinity' of India along with Ravi Shankar and Vilayat Khan and is the youngest of them.

He was born in 1929, in Jawra, Madhya Pradesh, as the son of Jaffer Khan, a versatile vocalist, sitarist and beenkar. He hails from the Beenkar Gharana of
Indore. He has been a distinguished All India Radio Artiste since the early 1940s. Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan is perhaps best known for his innovation,
Jafferkhani Baaj. His music making is full of eclectic yet deeply informed choices. He is a thinking musician but puts across his complex views with a simplicity and feeling which demarcate the articulate performer from the articulate theoretician
