#ThisDayInMusic we are commemorating noted shehnai player Bismillah Khan’s death anniversary.

So join us in observing a few moments of silence as we mourn the loss the world of music suffered with the demise of Bismillah Khan #ThisDayInMusic. Credited with bringing the instrument of shehnai back to mainstream music, Bismillah Khan lived a rich and fulfilling life with a wide range of hits in his repertoire – Most noted of which was the work he did for Rajkumar’s role of Appanna in the Kannada movie Sanaadi Appanna. Such was his love for the instrument that as a token of honor, his favorite shehnai was buried with him.
