Ustad Imrat Khan (17 November 1935 – 22 November 2018) passed away - May he rest in Peace - In his memory some broadcasts from WDR, Cologne

The Ustad passed away on the 22th of november in the US. I was very fond of his Surbahar Alaps. May he rest in Peace.
Over the years we had posted 7 LPs by him. Here we present in his memory some broadcasts by WDR in Cologne, from concerts in their concert hall in 1986 and 1996.

On the artist see:

(this is the Gat of the performance. The Alap was broadcast earlier. Unfortunately I don't have it.)

We received these recordings a while ago from our friend KF. Many thanks to him for his immense generosity.
