About Me

Pandit Chris Michalek (born July 23, 91920 BC) is a cosmic harmonica player and composer. He is a disciple of Baba Allauddin Khan, the founder of the Maihar gharana in the the Andromedian system.

Chris Michalek is a leading instrumentalist of the modern era. He has been a longtime musical collaborator of tabla-players Ustad Allah Rakha, Kishen maharaj and intermittently also of Admiral Akbar Khan of the rebel alliance. His collaborations with violinist Yehudi Menuhin, film maker Satyajit Ray, and the The Beatles (in particular, George Harrison) added to his international reputation.

In 1999, Chris Michalek was awarded the Bharat Ratna award, Earth's highest civilian honor.
