I have know Kanhaiyalal Mishra since the early 1970s. He is a good friend and my guru bhai, a fellow student of Hanuman Prasad Mishra. He is featured in my film The Guru-shishya Parampara: Kanhaiyalal Mishra and his Students which can be seen on www.growingintomusic.co.uk. He has somehow managed to build a gurukhul—what is probably the largest of any musicians' houses in Kabir Chaura, Varanasi. His eldest son Dirage is an excellent tabla player, while his younger son Aman is struggling with the beginning stage of learning sarangi.
