The Ustad has also performed in Germany, Holland, Italy, Belgium and France. He regularly conducted workshops on Dhrupad in France, Italy, Belgium & Bangladesh. In February 2004 he was awarded the 'Lifetime Achievement Award' by the University of Pune.
His tradition is carried on by his two sons Nafeesuddin and Aneesuddin Dagar, and his French disciples Jérôme Cormier and Gilles Monfort.
