Pt. Ravi Shankar ji introduced his student Bishan Dass to Ustad Ali Akbar sahib way back in 1952. For Ustadji, Bishan Dass made accompaniment tambooris for his sarod and many times restored his sarod. In 1970 when Bishan ji toured United States he was invited by Ustadji to his college in San Rafael California, where he restored Ustadji’s and his students instruments. With Ustadjis blessing & guidance he learnt many things about music, sound & tone of different instruments. Currently the Ali Akbar college store carries Sitars, Tambooris etc.from Rikhi Ram.
