World top most search engine google celebrate indian tabla usdad Allah Rakha birthday through doodle. Usdad Allah Rakha born on April 29 at Jammu, India.
Ustad Alla Rakha Khan popularised the art of tabla, playing across the globe, elevating the status and respect of his instrument. Abbaji (as he was affectionately known by his disciples) also bridged the gap between Carnatic music and Hindustani music by playing with both renowned Carnatic musicians and other Hindustani stalwarts.
Leading American percussionists in Rock n’ Roll, such as the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, admired him and studied his technique, benefiting greatly even from single meetings. Hart, a published authority on percussion in world music, said “Alla Rakha is the Einstein, the Picasso; he is the highest form of rhythmic development on this planet.” Alla Rakha also collaborated with jazz drummer Buddy Rich, on their 1968 album Rich à la Rakha.
Ustad Alla Rakha Khan was awarded the Padma Shri in 1977 and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1982.
