More Info

I started IAM in 1989 in order to offer a broader range of artists than the 4 or 5 great artists who played in the U.S. & released most of the recordings easily available. Thirty years & 92 releases later I need money to keep releasing recordings - now as downloads - and to be able to keep paying rent for the storage room that holds some 40,000 CDs There are brilliant recordings by Ustad Vilayat Khan, Ustad Sultan Khan, Shujaat Khan, Rashid Khan, Tejendra Majumdar, Debashish Bhatttacharya and so many more great artists. There are also archival recordings by Amir Khan, Bahadur Khan & Sharafat Hussain Khan. Without the help of Indian Classical Music lovers everywhere, this will all come to an end. I'm pleading, begging for help to keep the company alive & the music flowing.
