Ali Akbar Khan (1922 - 18 June 2009), born in Brahmanbaria, India (now Bangladesh), began his studies in music at the age of three. He studied vocal music from his father and drums from his uncle, Fakir Aftabuddin. His father also trained him on several other instruments, but decided finally that he must concentrate on the sarod and on vocal. For over twenty years, he trained and practised eighteen hours a day. After that, his father continued to teach him until he was over 100 years old, and left behind such a wealth of material that Khan felt he was still learning new things from it.
