Letter of Appreciation
Nawaz represented Singapore as a delegate to share his knowledge of Indian Classical Music as well as conduct tabla workshops during the event.
“I feel proud of Sri Nawaz Mirajkar, for his talent and skill on music: he is dedicated and sincere about his work… Apart from his musical talent, he is modest and kind as a person, this is important also to be a nice human being. I am happy for Nawaz and pray to God for his all success in his career. In this album he maintains the traditional Gharana that he studied from his great father, Ustad Mohammad Hanif Khan Mirajkar.”
“Hailing from a great Gharana, Nawaz is a fine traditional ‘tabla nawaz’ and a distinguished pupil of his father, Ustad Mohammad Hanif Khan Mirajkar and grandfather Ustad Mehboob Khan Saheb Mirajkar. All I can give to such a wonderful artist are my blessings.”
