Legendary Indian Classical Musician Ustad Rashid Khan Passes Away at 55

Ustad Rashid Khan Passes Away

Legendary Hindustani classical vocalist Pandit Rashid Khan, one of the brightest stars in the world of Indian classical music, sadly breathed his last on Tuesday at the young age of 55 in Kolkata. He had been courageously battling cancer for some time. His untimely demise has left the music fraternity bereft of an exceptionally gifted musician.

Khan belonged to the prestigious Rampur Sahaswan Gharana, founded by his legendary great-grandfather, Ustad Inayat Hussain Khan. He received his extensive training under the tutelage of his uncle and gharana stalwart, Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan.

Over an acclaimed career spanning more than three decades, Pandit Rashid Khan came to be known for his unparalleled mastery over the intricate techniques of Hindustani classical music. He enthralled audiences globally with his powerful and soulful Gayaki, evoking the purity of the Rampur Sahaswan Gayaki Ang.

Alongside dedicating his life to Indian classical music, Pandit Khan also sang popular Bollywood numbers from time to time. His soulful renditions of chartbuster songs like ‘Aaoge Jab Tum O Saajana’ from Jab We Met and ‘Allah Hi Reham’ from My Name is Khan left an indelible mark.

As the news of Pandit Rashid Khan’s demise spread, condolences started pouring in from all quarters. Expressing his grief, opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari stated, “His passing away leaves a huge void in the world of classical music that can perhaps never be filled again. I pray his soul finds eternal  peace.” Fans and admirers also paid emotional tributes on social media.

The maestro’s mortal remains were taken to his native place in West Bengal for last rites. His untimely death at just 55 has deprived the music world of a true genius. He will be sorely missed by disciples and rasikas alike. Pandit Rashid Khan’s immortal music lives on for posterity.
