IME acquires Ustad Bismillah Khan’s Shehnai

The IME had an emotion-filled day, when we received the Shehnai of Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan in an intimate and moving ceremony. Ustad Zamin Hussain Bismillah Khan, the son of the Shehnai Maestro donated a Shehnai and his trademark ‘Topi’. The acquisition will be a prized part of our museum display.
