The award winning musician plays the beginning of the famous carol and not even once does it sound odd to hear it on an instrument like Sarod. Its simple and deeply soulful.

Khan received the Padma Shri in 1975, the Padma Bhushan in 1991, and the Padma Vibhushan in 2001, and was awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for 1989 and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship for 2011.
