Bihag - The Last Concert of Ustad Amir Khan (Calcutta)
""Ustadji was doing 'Riwaz' (practise) a few days before his demise. He sung an unimaginable note on Gandhar (Ga). Khan sahib stopped singing. Then he said quietly "Our zyada din nahi. Yeh gandhar jise lag jata hai, wo insaan zyada din rehta nahi" (Not many days more.....whoever sings this Gandhar, doesn't live long .... ) """
Sadly he died in a car accident in Calcutta on February 13, 1974

Ustad Amir Khan singing Abhogi and Suha at All India Music Conference 1955 held in Roxy Theatre in Calcutta. It is part of a longer performance where Khansahib also sang Hamsadhwani - which I have posted separately as another video in my channel. Tabla : Daud Khan, Violin: VG Jog. Amir Khansahib was 43 years old then and at the peak of his ability. It begins with an announcement in Bengali. Enjoy !

Live in London
The sound all through the 2 hour performance is impecable. There is only a tiny lowering of the volume between the minutes 22.55 till 26.40 and afterwards it settles down.
There is no interval, no stop between one raga and the next one because Mr Khan quite marvelously joints them. The music was transferred from reel-to-reel tapes wich run about 48 minutes per side; thatīs why a tiny gap is heard at those moments.
