Khan, was born in Kabul/Afghanistan. He studied Robab with Ustad
Muhammad Umar, who was the most famous Afghan robab-interpret.
The knowledge about making as well as playing the Robab has
become rare, and only a few artists still keep this classical
tradition. Daud Khan is trying to preserve this authentic style
of his master’s school. He also has studied the North-Indian
instrument Sarod, with the great Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali
Khan in India who also founded Academy of Indian Music in Cologne
which Daud Khan is heading. Daud Khan is frequently performing
all over Europe and participating in big international music-festivals.
He introduced his style on a USA-Tour 2005. He took part in
concerts with the well-known instrumentalist Jordi Savall and
his ensemble and participated in many CD-productions as instrumentalist.
He performed many times live German TV and radio-programs. In
India he was honoured twice with the Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan Award
