Bade Gulam Ali Khan - H 886 - 78 RPM

 

Bade Ghulam Ali Khan (2 April 1902 – 25 April 1968) was a Hindustani classical vocalist, from the Patiala gharana.
Khan was born in Kasur, then in the Punjab province in British India; after partition, Kasur became a part of Pakistan.His father was a famous singer, Ali Baksh Khan, in a West Punjabi family of musical heritage.

At the age of five, he started learning Sarangi and vocal from his paternal uncle Kale Khan, who was also a singer and composer of repute, and after his death he picked up a few compositions from his father who had remarried by this time. This tenure lasted for almost three years. It was at this juncture that he improvised the musical instrument Kanun to the present Swarmandal which became his trademark. When he was about 21 years old, he moved to Benaras where he accompanied a courtesan named Hirabai on the Sarangi and started to perform in public.
Though Khan started his career by accompanying female singers on the sarangi, he also used to sing a few compositions of his late Father Ustad Ali Baksh Khan sahib Ustad Kalay Khan sahib of Kasur Gharana.He became popular as a vocalist after his debut concert in Kolkata. Khan amalgamated the best of four traditions: his own Patiala-Kasur style, the Behram Khani elements of Dhrupad, the gyrations of Jaipur, and the behlavas (embellishments) of Gwalior[citation needed]. His voice had a wide range, spanning three octaves, effortless rendition, sweetness, flexibility and ease of movement in all tempo. His raga expositions were brief, contrary to convention, and while he agreed that the beauty of classical music lay in leisurely improvisation, he believed that the audience would not appreciate long alaps, and he had to sing for the masses and change the music to what the audience wanted.
