Ali Akbar Khan 1922 - 2009

"Music is like food. When you need it you don’t have to explain why, because it is basics of life"
Sarod maestro Ali Akbar Khan died on June 18

He once wrote of the sarod, "If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist -- then you may please even God."
