Hassan Ali is a musician who plays both the harmonium and flute. The harmonium was his first instrument, but he learnt the flute later on in his life. Born in Lahore to a family with a long background in music, he was taught how to play the harmonium when he was thirteen years old by his ustad, Lala Gulzar Hussain through much hard work and practice. His grandfather was the esteemed sarangi virtuoso Ustad Nathu Khan, whose students include the famous singer Farida Khanum. He has performed in many concerts around the world in places such as the Middle East and the UK, and has taught several students, who are now professionally participating in the music industry, with some singing and others playing various instruments. He is currently active and plays music.
