Pune : For renowned sarod player, Ken Zuckerman the best part while listening to Sarod maestro, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan for the first time in a concert in the US was his engrossment in the rhythm and the way the involved musician reacted to it.

Zuckerman who belongs to the Maihar Gharana is one of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan’s senior-most students and an outstanding sarod player and educator.

“I showed interest in music from an early age. I played guitar and listened to Pop, Rock and Folk music. Once, I read an advertisement in the university in Iowa of a concert of the Ustad and attended it just out of curiosity. I had no exposure to such kind of music but attending that concert was the best introduction for me to Indian classical music. I initially started learning Sitar, but I liked the sound of sarod and even had a dream of Ustad urging me to play the instrument and that was when my journey as a musician began,” he concluded.
