        Ali Akbar Khan: Music

        In his native India, Ali Akbar Khan is considered a national living treasure. This revered figure has passed down his musical mastery to more than 10,000 students worldwide. With a teaching style very distinct from Western classical musicians, Khan composes new "ragas" (melodies) on the spot as his students listen and try to play by ear. In this Spark video sit in on a class at the Ali Akbar College of Music and watch Khan in concert to experience his unique melody-making.
