• Raag Amiri Todi •

S-rR-g-m-P-dD-n-S


Created by sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan in 1974, inspired by vocalist Amir Khan. As recounted to Indian Express in 2009: “My love and reverence for Khansaheb does not stem only from his music, but for his truly kind and humble nature. When he died [in] 1972, it appeared as if the light had gone out of our lives. The idea [for] Amiri Todi developed in my mind during that period of the intense grief…A mixture of two of my most favourite ragas sung by Khansaheb, Shahana and Bilaskhani Todi“. Recordings prove elusive.
