Master on Masters (Marathi)

Master on Masters (Marathi)

Amjad Ali Khan
Select Preferred Format

This book (now my favourite), is written so beautifully that when you read it, it feels as if the master himself has called you for a cup of tea at his residence and asks you; Kahaani sunenge ? And then the silsila of “purane kisse” aur “kahaniya” begins. Ustad Amjad Ali Khan’s book is one of those few book which do not try hard to stand out with their writing capabilities and tough vocabulary. Instead it is an effortlessly wonderful casual memoir. Awesome if you want a light read or if you want to explore the nooks and corners of Ustads’ memory lane. –By sagar kapoor on 5 April 2017.

Book contains interactions with other musicians. Music lovers and students can appreciate the content more. Good read even for people with non musical background. –By archanaa on 7 April 2017
