Notes

"Dr Mustafa Raza was born in 1958 in Delhi, in a famous family of Vichitraveena players, solo musicians and accompanists of the Patiala gharana's singers. His father and teacher, Ustad Ahmed Raza Khan, beenkar and well kwown khyal musician has taught him indian classical music in the guru shishya parampara (the traditional way of teaching in a gharana). His family is associated with the Moradabad gharana through his grandfather, Ustad Chajju Khan, a court musician who was also the father of Ustad Sabri Khan. His family school, the Patiala gharana, comes from the Delhi gharana. An All India Radio musician with the A grade, he is frequently invited in European concerts and in the most prestigious classical festivals of India. He is the only vichitraveena player originating from a family of beenkars, and his style offers incomparable quality and technical mastery. He shows his ability by playing long alaps, rare rags, and very fast improvisations on this difficult instrument."
