NEW DELHI: Google on Tuesday honored noted tabla maestro Lachhu Maharaj on his 74th birth anniversary by dedicating a doodle to the musician.

Born on this day in 1944 to a family of musicians, Lachhu Maharaj (born as Lakshmi Narayan Singh), was one of the most celebrated tabla players of his time.

Maharaj trained under his father, Vasudev Maharaj, and started performing at an early age.

As a child, his gifts caught the attention of legendary tabla player Ahmed Jaan Thirakwa, who was deeply impressed by Maharaj’s performance at just eight years old.
