Zakir Hussain, Amjad Ali Khan and Grammy Awards

Yeah .. after AR Rahman we have tabla maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain who has been nominated for the 52nd Grammy award in the Best Classical Crossover album category for the album "The Melody of Rhythm." This is with Leonard Slatkin, conductor; Béla Fleck and Edgar Meyer.

We also have nomination for Ancient Sounds by Rahim Alhaj And Amjad Ali Khan in the Best Traditional World Music Album - (Vocal or Instrumental) category.

Kudos to Indian classical singers getting international "official" recognition.
