From 7.15pm, before the concert, we are showing excerpts of 'Khandan', a documentary film about Ustad Shujaat Khan.
Ustad Shujaat Husain Khan is perhaps the greatest North Indian classical musician of his generation. At the age of three, Shujaat began practicing on a specially made small sitar, and by the time he was six, the child prodigy commenced giving public performances. Shujaat Husain Khan's approach to rhythm is largely intuitive, fresh and spontaneous, always astonishing his audiences.
Shujaat Husain Khan is the son and disciple of master Sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. His musical pedigree continues back through his grandfather, Ustad Inayat Khan; his great-grandfather, Ustad Imdad Khan; and his great-great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan - all leading artist of their generation.
He belongs to the Imdad Khani Gharana (tradition) of the Sitar and is the seventh in the unbroken line in his family that has produced many musical masters. His style, known as the “Gayaki Ang”, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice. He has over 50 musical releases on a variety of international labels; his album, Rain, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004.
