Following a highly successful appearance at the BBC Proms in 2013 when his acclaimed sitar concerto Gate of the Moon was
premiered, we now have a rare chance to listen to a solo performance by one of India’s finest musicians, Ustad Nishat Khan, virtuoso sitar player and leading light of one of the most famous music families in the North Indian classical tradition. His father is Ustad Imrat Khan and his uncle is the late Ustad Vilayat Khan – it is no wonder that Nishat has been dazzling audiences with his phenomenal technique and beautiful aesthetic sense all over the world.
Nishat has performed and worked with a diversity of legends including Zakir Hussain, John McLaughlin, Philip Glass, Paco Peña, Evelyn Glennie and has also composed for films.
Nishat is accompanied on tabla by Shahbaz Hussain who has emerged as one of the most promising and exciting tabla players of his generation. Trained by his father Ustad Mumtaz Hussain and then by Ustad Faiyaz Khan of the Delhi gharana, Ustad Shaukat Hussain of the Punjab gharana and finally by the legendary maestro Ustad Allah Rakha, Shahbaz is much in demand to perform in both traditional as well as contemporary contexts internationally.
