Steve Oda: In his Guru’s Footsteps
Celebrating the Centenary Birth Year of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan

Steve Oda began his musical education at the age of seven, learning to play slide guitar and later, jazz guitar. Born in Toronto to second generation Japanese-Canadians, Steve’s love of creativity through musical expression led him to the classical music of North India and the Sarode. For over 45 years Steve Oda has dedicated himself to learning this complex art form and carrying on the teachings of his illustrious guru, the legendary musician, the late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. After Khansahib’s passing in 2009, Steve continued his studies under Padmashri Pandit Rajeev Taranath, a senior disciple of Khansahib.
Steve has performed in Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, Europe, Canada, and throughout the U.S. He currently resides in San Francisco, actively teaching and performing this sublime art form.
On the centenary year of Khansahib’s birth, Steve will perform various raags composed by the maestro. He will be accompanied on tabla, by Toronto-based, Ravi Naimpally.
