Biography

The Dagar Brothers are the Grandsons of “Zakiruddin Khan” and “Allabande Khan”:

* Ustad Nasir Aminuddin Dagar (1923-2000), (1929-1990)
* Ustad Rahim Fahimuddin Dagar (b 1927)
* Ustad Nasir Zahiruddin Dagar (1932-1994)
* Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar (b 1933)
* Ustad Nasir Faiyazuddin Dagar (1934-1989) and
* Ustad Hussain Sayeeduddin Dagar (b1939).

The eldest brother of this generation “Ustad Nasir Moinuddin Dagar” died in 1966 in the prime of his career.

Nasir Moinuddin and Nasir Aminuddin Dagar formed a very successful duo and were known as the “Senior/Elder Dagar Brothers”.

Their younger brothers Nasir Zahiruddin and Nasir Faiyazuddin Dagar also performed as a duo and were known as the “Junior/Younger Dagar Brothers”.

These eight grandsons of Zakiruddin and Allabande Khan (Dagar) are credited with keeping the Dhrupad tradition alive during the period after Indian independence when the patronage of the royal courts and a musically cultured and informed aristocracy was gone and classical music in India had to survive on the patronage of the new Indian state run by bureaucrats and politicians.
