Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan, widely recognised as one of the greatest sitar players in the world, is known for his unique tone and astute artistic sense, and for his highly charged, enthralling performances. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards and represents the seventh generation of the sitar’s first family, the Etawah Gharana.
He was initiated into the rich traditions of the Gharana by his father and guru, Ustad Aziz Khan, and the legendary sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan was also an early influence on his playing style. His music is both traditional and evolving, pushing the boundaries to ever greater heights of immersive beauty.
This concert is presented in partnership with the Asian Arts Agency
