Amir Khan has influenced many singers and instrumentalists in ICM and unfortunately died early in an accident.

Nikhil Banerjee in particular admitted that AK deeply influenced his raag development approach and even overall approach on a raag -- Both Rashid Khan and Bhimsen Joshi held AK in very high regard and both claimed they try to sing like him

This is a short documentary that showed he was not big rock star like many of today's artists


Amir Khan Charukeshi on Youtube
Part 1

e.g. this like many other Charukeshi recordings on sitar are based on this composition (Laaj rakho tum mori gusainya) by Ustad Amir Khansaheb who has influenced many other great versions by sitar players shown below:

(Alap) KB

(Gat) KB

This version by Shujaat Khan models the Amir Khan bandish as closely as is possible on a sitar
