Rashid Khan is an Indian classical musician of the Rampur-Sahaswan Gharana, which is a school of Indian classical music. Rashid was born in Northern India. He first received his training from his grand-uncle, Ustaad Nissar Hussain Khan. At. First, Rashid did not have much interest in music. His lessons as a child consisted of intense voice training called ‘Swar Sadhana’. This training would begin at four in the morning, it consisted of singing the same note for hours on end!
This painstaking practice paid off, as today Rashid is able to easily sing Taan and Layakaari and this is very hard to do! Rashid Khan trains many classical musicians at his music school, The Fifth Note Global Centre which was started over twenty years ago. He also continues to perform his music, which is popular across South Asia; India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and the rest of the world.
