SangeetSabha is proud to present a living legend of Indian Classical Music, Ustad Shahid Parvez Khan on Sitar!

Ud. Shahid Parvez Khan is an exponent of the Gayaki Ang, a style that transfers the emotional directness and tonal nuance of the human voice to the instrument. He is renowned for both, his lyricism and complelling rhythms. Ustad Shahid Parvez is the leading light of Etawah Gharana in our generation. His father and Guru was Ustad Aziz Khan, a great musician of his time and a noted composer. Ustadji is the grandson of Ustad Waheed Khan Sahab, the legendary Sitar and Surbahar player.

Accompanied on Tabla by Pandit Nayan Ghosh. Panditji is known for his artistic brilliance which are steeped in deep classical roots. He is one of the few tabla players who had a chance to learn from the Great Ustad Ahmedjan Thirakwa Khan Sahib. Amongst the new generation of music seekers, he is held as an important reference.
