Anybody left out there?
However, while Ustad Allauddin Khansahib played the sarod, I understand that he played and taught numerous instruments and composed ragas too. Some of his disciples were taught and specialized in other instruments, e.g., Pandit Ravi Shankar (sitar), Pandit Nikhil Banerji (sitar), and Srimati Annapurna Devi (Surbahar).
It is a credit to his memory and his gharana that sitar players and other musicians continue to revere him and his teachings.
See, for example, Dawn of Indian Music in the West by Peter Lavezzoli, for further info.
