About the Teacher: In an era where music has been reduced to mere entertainment, Ghulam Hasan Khan is a moving and reassuring example of uncompromising purity. He belongs to the Rampur – Sahaswan Gharana, which owes its allegiance to the legendary Tansen’s tradition. 

He was initiated into music at the tender age of 3 years by his father, Ustad Ghulam Abbas Khan, a classical vocalist of international repute. He continues his training under the worthy guidance of his legendary grandfather Padmashri Ustad Ghulam Sadiq Khan, one of India's finest


Ghulam Hasan Khan gave his first concert at the age of 7 years and has been an active performer both in India and abroad. In 2007, he and his grandfather performed in Rashtrapati Bhawan for a special concert organized by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. 

Gifted with a sonorous and mellifluous voice, he specializes in Khayal Style, highlighting the systematic 'Badhat' of Raga, intricate and graceful fast 'Sapat' gaana of full three octaves. 

Apart from Khayal, he also renders Thumri, Tarana, Ghazal, Geet, Sufi, and Bhajan with ease and dexterity.

Teacher's performance bits for reference


Traditionally, Hindu Hindustani classical music practitioners are referred to as Pandit and Muslim practitioners as Ustad. Religious neutrality has been an essential aspect of Hindustani music since Sufi times; this is why Ustads could sing compositions in praise of Hindu deities and vice versa.
