Rajasthan’s tradition of music continues to resonate as the World of Sacred Spirit Festival (WSSF) is ready to host its program for the 9th year at the grand venues Ahhichatragarh Fort in Nagaur from 22nd to 24th February, 2016 and Mehrangarch Fort from 26th to 28th February, 2016.
Daud Khan, was born in Kabul/Afghanistan in 1955. He studied Robab (a traditional lute-instrument of Afghanistan) with Ustad Muhammad Umar, who was the most famous Robab-interpret of the classical style as well as the traditional folklore style in his country.
The knowledge about building as well as playing the Robab has become rare, and only a few artists still keep the tradition of the classical robab-style which was mainly represented by Ustad Muhammad Umar in Kabul. Daud Khan is trying to preserve this authentic style of his master’s school.
In his seminar he doesn’t only teach the basics of classical indian and afghan music, but also the principles of improvisation and composition.
Besides that, Daud Khan has studied the North-Indian instrument Sarod, which is a descendent instrument of the Robab, with the great Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan in India. The ancestors of Amjad Ali Khan had brought the Robab from Afghanistan to India and developped the instrument Sarod from it. http://www.labyrinthmusic.gr/en/seminaria/255-rabab
