उ. अमजद अली खानांचे ख्रिसमसि तुकडे

याला काय म्हणायचे? ख्रिसमस जिंगल्स आणि अमजद अली खान साहेब? नाट्य संगीत स्टेजवर गायला लागले तेव्हा लोकांनी काय गोंधळ केला होता…आणि ही तर कमालच आहे बुवा…मला तर त्या आयोजकांची कशी फजिती झाली असेल याचा विचार करवत नाही… अमजद अली खानांना बोलावले आणि काय…तर इंग्रजी पोएम. बदल पाहिजे, नाविन्याचे वारे पाहिजेत सगळे ठीक आहे हो…पण हे मानवणे खरंच अवघड आहे….

    Shri Sheth : I haven’t seen the video but don’t worry about the organizers. It has been known for 30+ years now that Amjad Ali Khan, a second-rate musician even when he is at his best, is a joker. If the organizers were serious, they would not, certainly should not, have invited him if they were serious about anything whatever.

      अमजद आली खानाचे जसे म्हणत आहात तसे रवीशंकर यांच्या विषयीही बोलणारे लोक आहेत. आणि तसेच जसराजांबद्दल देखिलही. त्यातले मला काही कळत नाही. प्रत्येकजण आपापल्या नजरेने आणि क्षमतेने दुसऱ्याला जोखतो. पण हे जे काही वाजवले आहे ते मात्र विनोदी आहे हेनक्की.

        I know quite a few truly knowledgeable listeners who do not like Ravi Shankar’s sitar, but they are a minority among RS detractors, most of whom bear some personal grudge against him.
        He has his faults but at his best, he is one of our greatest musicians. I am just a lay listener like you who happens to be interested (not necessarily knowledgeable) in music, but my observation FWIW is that he was a plausible candidate for Bharat Ratna. He did mingle with the white crowd to an uncommon extent but some of the accusations against him are fabricated. For example, he claims that he never did ‘jazz’ with the Beatles. And the claim seems correct to me. He did ‘jazz’ with Yehudi Menuhin, and I find the effort laughably elementary; but I can cut some slack that he was quite possibly sincerely trying to create good music. Not only is his music wonderful, few can match his musical imagination.

        Even Jasraj, at his best, is a highly competent musician, far far better than Amjad Ali. Amjad Ali’s music around 1970 is rightly praised for its passion and power but the depth has always been missing from it. There are several competent sarodiyas whom I would rather listen to: Zareen Daruwala, Sharan Rani, Buddhadev Dasgupta, his guru Radhika Mohan Maitra. Ali Akbar Khan was in a class of his own.

    काय फालतूपणा आहे अरे हा? संयोजक मूर्खच म्हटले पाहिजेत.

    It has been known for 30+ years now that Amjad Ali Khan, a second-rate musician even when he is at his best, is a joker. जोकर? सेकंड रेट म्युझिशियन?
    अनाम प्रतिसाद देता येतात म्हणून काहीही लिहाल काय? संयोजकांचा दोष आहे की अमजद अली खॉं यांचा हे सोडा. एका ज्येष्ठ कलाकाराबद्दल असे उद्गार निश्चितच अनुचित आहेत.
