Synopsis

The unique and excep­tional music of Ustad Bis­mil­lah Khan. Rec­og­nized through­out the world as one as the great­est musi­cians of Indian Raga, his fame is due to his astound­ing work with the Shanaï oboe whose sta­tus he tran­cended from that of a com­mon court instru­ment to that of a clas­si­cal solo instru­ment. Along the banks of the Ganges, the myth­i­cal city of Banaras is the set­ting of our film, pro­vid­ing a visual coun­ter­part to the musi­cal cre­ation of the maestro’s genius.
