About Tansen Pande


Tansen Pande (1908-1963) was born Hussainuddin Khan, the fourth son of Allabande Khan. While most of the members of the Dagar musical family acknowledge their Hindu antecedents, Tansen Pande formally chose to revert to his ancestor’s faith around 1947. He ranks as one of the great Dhrupadiyas of the 20th C.
