Event description
Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan with accompaniment By Sanju Sahai

About this event

Shahid Parvez Khan is widely recognised as one of the greatest sitar players in the world. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards, his music is both novel and evolving.

His unique tone and astute artistic sense have become his hallmark as a respected performer and composer. He has achieved success in not only preserving tradition, but also pushing its boundaries to greater heights of aesthetic beauty.

His performance style has inspired a generation of instrumentalists with his unique combination of emotional depth and brilliant technical mastery. His renditions of ragas are considered benchmarks for instrumental music in the Indian tradition.

Shahid Parvez represents the seventh generation of the sitar's first family, the Etawah Gharana. At a very young age, he was initiated into the rich traditions of the Gharana by his father and guru, Ustad Aziz Khan - the famous musician and son of legendary sitar and surbahar virtuoso Ustad Waheed Khan. The legendary sitar maestro Ustad Vilayat Khan was also a strong influence and his playing strikes a fine balance between traditionalism and innovation.

Accompanying Shahid Parvez is UK based Sanju Sahai, one of the finest and most sought-after contemporary tabla players. Belonging to the Benares gharana, Sanju has performed with many legendary musicians including Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia, Ustad Vilayat Khan Saheb, Manuela Carrasco, Michael Nyman and the BBC Philharmonic.
