Ustad Rajab Ali Khan (September 3, 1874 at Narsinhgarh, Madhya Pradesh - January 8, 1959 at Dewas, Madhya Pradesh) was an Indian classical vocalist.
Rajab Ali learned music from his father Mughal Khan in the tradition of Bade Mohammad Khan, and from Bande Ali Khan Beenkar. In this way his style was a mix of the Jaipur and Kirana styles. He was a court musician of Dewas and Kolhapur. He also performed on concert tours.

Rajab Ali was known as a master khayaliya but he was also a noted player of Rudra Veena, Sitar and Jaltarang. As a khyaliya Rajab Ali was known for his vistar full of melodic patterns as well as his very fast and intricate taans.
His disciples include his nephew Aman Ali Khan of the Bhendibazaar gharana, Nivruttibuwa Sarnaik, Ganpatrao Dewaskar, Krishna Shankar Shukla, Krishnarao Majumdar, Rajabhau Deo, Yasin Khan (sarangi player), Alladiya Khan (sarangi player, maternal uncle of Amir Khan), and Jyotiram of the Mewati gharana.
