Daily Quiz #71

What person connects the audio to the picture?



Turned out to be a toughie that one. 🙂 The connect is in fact Louis Banks, sometimes called the Godfather of Indian jazz. The song was the old Nepali national anthem called Shriman Gambhir, which was prevalent till 2006. The song was composed by Banks’ grandfather, Bakhat Bahadur Budapriti. Second pic was obviously of Louis Armstrong. Banks’ father changed his name from Dambar Bahadur Budaprithi to Louis Banks after the legendary musician, seeing his interest in jazz music.

Assuming this is Armstrong, i’ll guess Dizzy Gillespie
