Zakir Hussain's touching tribute to father Alla Rakha on birth anniversary

 Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain has paid tribute to his father and teacher Ustad Alla Rakha on his 98th birth anniversary.

The 66-year-old legendary musician wrote a heart-warming message remembering his guru on Twitter.
"Sashtang salaam to my guru and my Abbaji Ustad Alla Rakha on his 98th birthday today, every time I touch my tabla - he is there," wrote Zakir.

The Grammy-winning veteran also shared a picture in which he and his father can be seen practising.
Alla Rakha, who was a Hindustani Classical tabla player, passed away on February 3, 2000 due to a heart attack.
